MARY POPPINS RETURNS
2018, Walt Disney Studios, 130 min, Dir: Rob Marshall

Set in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written), this all-new musical and sequel follows the next generation of the Banks family and their practically perfect nanny. Michael (Ben Whishaw) is now a grown man with three children of his own and a temporary job with the same financial institution that employed his father. With the tough economic times and the recent death of Michael’s wife, the Banks home is in a constant state of chaos and the children are burdened with far too many adult responsibilities. Sending the already frazzled Michael into a further tailspin is the news that foreclosure proceedings have begun on the house. Fortunately, the wind begins to change as Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) enters their lives once again to take the Banks family on a series of whimsical adventures and bring life, love and laughter back into their home. Co-starring Julie Walters, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Dick Van Dyke.


CHICAGO
2002, Park Circus/Miramax, 113 min, USA/Germany/Canada, Dir: Rob Marshall

At a time when crimes of passion result in celebrity headlines, nightclub sensation Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and spotlight-seeking Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) find themselves sharing space on Chicago's famed Murderess Row. They also share Billy Flynn (Richard Gere), the town's slickest lawyer, who has a talent for turning notorious defendants into local legends. But in Chicago, there's only room for one legend! Based on the Bob Fosse stage musical, the film won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, with supporting performances by John C. Reilly (as Hart’s gullible husband) and Queen Latifah (as a corrupt jail matron) garnering additional Oscar nominations.


INTO THE WOODS
2014, Walt Disney Studios, 125 min, USA, Dir: Rob Marshall

This adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim Broadway musical weaves together some of the most beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Cursed to remain childless, a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) turn to a witch (Oscar nominee Meryl Streep), who agrees to help them if they will gather ingredients for a magic potion - a scavenger hunt that sends them chasing such characters as Cinderella, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood. Boasting gorgeous production and costume design, the film features an all-star cast that includes Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman and Johnny Depp (as the Big Bad Wolf).
