snow white and the huntsman Tag

It’s been one of our most anticipated films of the year since news first broke, but “Snow White and the Huntsman”‘s latest trailer just pushed it higher up the must-see list. Starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth as the titular characters, SWATH takes the story away from Disney’s telling and back into Grimms Brother land. Charlize Theron‘s Queen continues to dominate the story, as per the first trailer that was released late in 2011, but the latest unveiling from Universal reveals more of the plot and promises a much darkerRead More
A couple of relative unknowns are gearingup to take over for Gerard Butler in leading a group of oiled-up, nearly naked men into battle. Deadline reports young British actor Jamie Blackely has landed the co-lead in the “300″ sequel opposite fellow rising star Sullivan Stapleton, who landed the other lead role of Themosticles – that had been initially offered to Joel Edgerton – last week. In the Noam Murro-directed follow-up to Zack Snyder’s 2007 hyper-realistic ancient Greek epic, Eva Green is Artemisia, and Blackley will be Calisto, a teenager whoRead More
We’ve had plenty of looks at Snow White, the Huntsman, and the Evil Queen, but up until now, the fourth pivotal character in Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman”, the handsome and charming Prince who wakes Kristen Stewart from her slumber with a kiss, had been conspicuously missing. Well, hide no further, Sam Claflin. Pop Sugar has the first images of the British actor in costume and on the snowy forest set of the Rupert Sanders fairy tale epic and he looks every bit as gritty and ready for battleRead More

Kristen Stewart in talks for female lead in “Akira”

Earlier today U&C reported that Kristen Stewart had been offered the lead role in “Akira,” an adaptation of the popular Japanese manga. Deadline has just confirmed that Stewart is indeed now in talks for the part. If a deal is closed, this role will reunite Stewart with her “On The Road” co-star Hedlund in which Stewart will play Kei, the love interest of protagonist Keneda (Hedlund). Stewart is, of course, no stranger to adaptations. The first installment of “Breaking Dawn“, the almost-final movie in the Twilight Saga opens in theatresRead More
The first trailer for “Mirror Mirror” has arrived, and… oy. The combined puppy dog charms of Lily Collins and Armie Hammer aren’t enough to overcome an especially grating Julia Roberts, disappointingly limp costumes and sets and dialogue full of puns so terrible I can’t even make a pun here to clever this sentence up. We were rooting for your Snow White movie, Tarsem Singh (even, at times, over that other one), but why are you making it so hard? Looks like Tarsem and Co. were aiming for family-friendly comedy adventureRead More
Warner Bros continues to dream big and reach out to strictly A-list talent to round out the ensemble cast of its risky, bid budget remake of Japanese manga “Akira”, with offers out to the likes of Gary Oldman and Helena Bonham Carter still pending. Thus far the only actor to officially sign on is Garrett Hedlund, who will star as Kaneda in the futuristic actioner, and while previous reports indicated Keira Knightley had been offered an unspecified female role, Twitch now reports it’s “Twilight” series star Kristen Stewart who hasRead More

Following the new poster of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Universal has released a full length trailer of their adaptation of the classic tale, as well as an additional poster featuring an armored Kristen Stewart in the title role of Snow White.

New “Snow White and the Huntsman” poster

A new poster for Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” made its debut yesterday and it’s given us a little more of a hint of what we can expect of this rendition of the classic fairy tale. The poster features Kristen Stewart centrally posed as an armed Snow White amidst an Alice-in-Wonderland-esque garden. Joining Stewart are Chris Hemsworth with his signature axe and Charlize Theron as the cold-hearted Queen. Judging from the character promo shots that premiered at SDCC and the somewhat recent set photos, the film appeared to differentiateRead More
Yesterday we posted the first images of Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew in Tarsem Singh’s super colorful and outlandish still untitled “Snow White” film and today a plethora of new images have been released, courtesy of EW, People and Yahoo! Movies. The costumes get bigger and more colorful and Lily Collins, it must be said, looks like a perfect Snow White, delicate and beautiful and always wearing a radiant smile, even in the midst of sword training. Further details have also emerged from director Singh, who reveals that Julia RobertsRead More
