Contemporary Musical Film

    In recent years there has been a remarkable resurgence in the success of film musicals. Since the turn of the millennium, films such as Chicago 2002 and Phantom of the Opera 2004 have restated the close connections between the stage and screen. This edited collection will look at the breadth and diversity of recent film musicals, including adaptations from the stage such as Mamma Mia! 2008, Tim Burton's Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street 2007 and Rock of Ages 2012. This collection will also look at films that owe less of a direct debt to stage musicals, such as Julie Taymor's Across the Universe 2007 and Lars von Trier's Dancer in the Dark 2000.
