Photo Mania: Into the Woods, Minions, Dumb and Dumber To, and More
Today’s Photo Mania, like most of these posts, has a bit of everything. I’ll start it off with a few family-oriented films like Into the Woods and Minions. Then I’ll move onto some comedy sequels like Dumb and Dumber To and Horrible Bosses 2. I’ll finish the post off with new looks at Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Absolutely Anything, and McFarland, USA.
First up today is a new crop of photos for the Disney musical film Into the Woods. The movie stars Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick (50/50), and Emily Blunt (Edge of Darkness). Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) movie is set to release on December 25th of this year and is sure to be a box office hit. Therefore, take a look at the photos below. (Source: Collider)
One of the biggest photo releases of this week belongs to the Despicable Me spin-off titled Minions. Along with some other marketing, they released a batch of photos for the prequel. Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda co-directed the movie and it’ll voice star Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, and Michael Keaton (so, yes, I’m excited). This movie won’t release until July 10, 2015, though. Check out the photos below. (Source: /Film)
As we gear up for the release of Dumb and Dumber To, a gallery of new photos came out touting its release. The sequel will again star Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels but it’ll also bring in Rob Riggle (The Hangover) and even feature a cameo from Jennifer Lawrence! Take a look at the photos below for the Farrelly Brothers’ sequel set to release on November 14th. (Source: Collider)
Speaking of sequels, I’ve also attached ten new photos for Horrible Bosses 2. Like before, this movie stars Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, and Jamie Foxx. However, it also brings in Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine (and they’re both featured below). Check out the photos below before Sean Anders’ (That’s My Boy) movie releases November 26th.

The long-in-development Pride and Prejudice and Zombies adaptation sent out its first look this past week, too. Most notably starring Lily James (Wrath of the Titans), the movie is directed by Burr Steers (17 Again) and co-written by him and David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook). Take a look at the cast above before the movie releases sometime next year. (Source: IndieWire)
Next up are four new photos for the comedy Absolutely Anything. This one stars Simon Pegg (featured above), Robin Williams (his voice actually), and Kate Beckinsale. Terry Jones’ (Monty Python and the Holy Grail) film follows a teacher who suddenly has the ability to do absolutely anything. Watch for this movie sometime next year as well. (Source: Empire)
Last up are a few new photos for McFarland, USA. As for talent, this drama is headlined by Kevin Costner and Maria Bello (FOX’s Touch) when it releases February 20, 2015. It’ll tell the story of a small track team’s transformation into champions. Sounds made for Hollywood, eh? Check out the photos below for Niki Caro’s (Whale Rider) film. (Source: MovieWeb)
