Snow White and the Huntsman New Trailer

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: This is certainly an improvement over the first teaser, if only in that it actually highlights Kristen Stewart’s Snow White over the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth).

21 Jump Street topped the box office this weekend with a whopping estimated $35 million

Barack Obama documentary “The Road We’ve Traveled” is creepy propaganda

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: Maybe I’m just too cynical. But even while I agree with about 90% of the content of this 17-minute documentary, I can’t help but be creeped out by the context.

John Carter grossed $500,000 worth of 12:01am shows last night. That’s quite a bit under the $3-5 million that most of last summer’s tent-pole films were[...]

Universal teases The Flintstones a year in advance…

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: It was no secret that Universal was planning a big-screen adaptation of The Flintstones for the summer of 1994. I remember actually being on the Universal lot while visiting a cousin in the winter of 1993 so I could shoot portions of a Bar Mitzvah movie[...]

Despicable Me 2 gets a trailer… uhmm

By Scott Mendelson HollywoodNews.com: I’ve whined before about the inexplicable need to spend countless millions of dollars on marketing campaigns so far in advance of the film’s release that only the hardcore fans are paying attention anyway.
