Kristen Stewart seeks protection in early “Snow White” photo

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As Bella Swan, “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart always seemed to be seeking protection. From Edward (Robert Pattinson). From Jacob (Taylor Lautner). From all sorts of creatures of the night. And that trend seems to be continuing now that Stewart’s transitioning to another fairy tale heroine … at least, according to the new promotional image.
Chris Hemsworth can be seen rising to the challenge of protecting KStew in a new pic posted on the Facebook page for “Snow White and the Huntsman,” a reimagining of the vintage story that also stars Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen. “Sometimes a look can say more than words,” the caption reads. So very true.
So far, we’ve seen character banners for the various actors, and a trippy trailer from director Tarsem Singh.
What do you think of the new photo? At the very least, this version of Snow White appears to have way more action than its rival, “Mirror Mirror,” with Lily Collins and Julia Roberts in its leads.
“Snow White and the Huntsman” will be in theaters in June.

Snow White revamp “Mirror Mirror” moves its date

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We have two Snow White stories in the pipeline for 2012, and for a while, they were trying to create as much space between them as physically possible. Now they’re moving just a little closer, from a release-date perspective.
Relativity announced in a release that Tarsem Singh’s “Mirror Mirror,” a comedic take on the classic fairy tale, has moved its release back two weeks, from March 16 to March 30. While the move might give Singh some time to tighten up his finished film, it also puts its in direct competition with the anticipated 3D sequel “Wrath of the Titans.”
It also moves it a bit closer to its Snow White rival, Kristen Stewart’s “Snow White and the Huntsman,” which reaches theaters on June 1.
Does it matter? Not likely. Based on existing trailers, the two Snow White projects couldn’t be more different in tone. And both will attract their respective audiences. “Mirror” fans just will have to wait a tad bit longer until they can see Lily Collins, Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer on screen.

Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron in first “Snow White” trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Mirror, mirror on the wall. What’s the coolest trailer you’ll see today? If you answered “Snow White and the Huntsman,” give yourself a bell.
The focus on this, the first clip of Rupert Sanders’ anticipated Snow White epic, lies on Charlize Theron’s wicked, beauty-engulfing queen. Which is fine by me. But it also sets the stage for what should be a mighty battle between the jealous despot and Snow White (Kristen Stewart), a warrior ready to defend her youthful vigor … to the death.
Here’s the trailer.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8Y-a23IEhI
Nothing – and I do mean NOTHING – in that trailer reminds me of the classic Walt Disney cartoon. And I’m assuming that’s the point. Sanders’ spin on the fairy tale is dark, violent … like something out of Ridley Scott’s grizzled imagination.
“Thor” lead Chris Hemsworth, as you can see, co-stars as the “Huntsman” hired by Theron to track and kill Stewart’s Snow White. But it’s the dwarves I’m dying to see. Ian McShane? Toby Jones? Nick Frost? Ray Winstone?! Bob Hoskins?!?!
Sign me up, and stamp it with a #SWATH hashtag. “Snow White and the Huntsman” will be in theaters on June 1, 2012.

“Snow White and the Huntsman” producers defend film at Comic-Con

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: The film is not yet in production—so what did “Snow White and The Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders and producers Joe Roth and Palak Patel have to share yesterday at Comic-Con? It was all about controlling the message about the competing Snow White films.
Fans were assured three things by Roth, whose voice was the strongest when it came to addressing skepticism about whether two films with identical characters could do well in the same year. In addition to highlighting vast differences (he likened the dark, epic approach that will be taken with “Snow White and the Huntsman” to the “Lord of the Rings” films), and saying that release dates separated by ten weeks would diminish real and perceived competition, Roth insisted that moviegoers are most attracted to genre—not plot—and that some fantasy fans were likely to see both Snow White films.
In the absence of footage from the film itself a short reel of Rupert Sanders’ work was shown—specifically commercials for video games such as “Halo 3” and “Call of Duty: Black Ops” which ran the gamut from evocative to fun. Finally, fans were shown a short, narrated clip that viewed like a movie trailer, utilizing unknown actors to stand in as Snow White characters. The clip, edited by Sanders, was another tactic meant to showcase his talent and give a sense for how “Snow White and the Huntsman” will look and feel under his direction. Filming for “Snow White and the Huntsman” begins in England next week.

Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth in first look “Snow White” photos

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As dueling “Snow White” projects work their way down the pipeline – one from Universal and one from Relativity – we continue to receive teasing images that set up the fairy tale worlds we’ll see on screen in 2012.
Right after Relativity unveiled their first look at “The Blind Side” starlet Lily Collins as Snow White, Universal counters with character images for their anticipated “Snow White and the Huntsman,” with Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Sam Claflin playing Snow White, the Huntsman, the Queen and the Prince, respectively.
We have the rest of them for you below:

I love that K-Stew rocks the warrior princess vibe instead of the woe-is-me, where’s-my-apple angle from the animated version. Hard to say for sure what we’re in store for until we see some footage (maybe in a trailer).
For now, Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman,” directed by Rupert Sanders, will be in theaters on June 1, 2012.

Will Kristen Stewart’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” be a trilogy?

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: According to producer Joe Roth, his “Snow White and The Huntsman” film is being positioned as a trilogy, a fact that has emerged rather late after months of speculative buzz. Scrutiny relating to the film has stemmed from the timing of its release, which will coincide with the release of a competing Snow White-themed film. While Roth’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” will star Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, the competing “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White” will star Lily Collins and Julia Roberts.
Said Roth to Entertainment Weekly in an exclusive interview, “This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters.” It is a surprising detail, given that a very in-demand Kristen Stewart just finished filming another lengthy fantasy series (a total of five “Twilight Saga” films); even when her role in the first film was announced, some worried that sticking with roles along these lines could only typecast the young actress as a hapless ingénue.
Yet, in his interview with EW, Roth insisted that his Snow White character will be different: “She starts out not a damsel in distress, but innocent, and after 11 years of imprisonment by the Evil Queen, she escapes and learns the ways of a warrior in the woods.”

Kristen Stewart’s “Snow White” will open months earlier

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: With two “Snow White” pictures coming down the pipeline, positioning is key. This morning, one production made a move that the studio hopes will help it race to the front of the pack.
Universal shifted the release date of its “Snow White and the Huntsman” to June 1, 2012, giving it a multi-week head start over Relativity Media’s Snow White film, THR reports. Universal’s feature, which has Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth in the title roles, originally was set to open in December.
The studio told the trade that “adjustments to the production timeline” had facilitated the move.
“As Rupert and Joe were finalizing casting and preproduction of Snow White and the Huntsman, we realized that the ambitious and fully-formed world they had promised was blowing away all expectations,” said Universal Chairman Adam Fogelson and Co-Chairman Donna Langley in the announcement. “We’re thrilled that Universal will be bringing this singular version of a timeless story almost seven months earlier than anticipated.”
You know who’s not thrilled? Relativity. We’ll see if they sit still, or if they hurry their production to maybe leapfrog ahead of this “Snow White” in time.

Taylor Lautner on his two costars being cast as Snow White

HollywoodNews.com: Taylor Lautner has had the luck of working with two actresses who will now be taking on the role of Snow White, but he isn’t choosing favorites.
Lautner’s ‘Twilight’ costar Kristen Stewart will be in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ while his ‘Abduction’ costar Lily Collins will be in ‘Snow White,’ states MTV. “They’re completely different stories, and the Snow Whites themselves are totally different,” Lautner said, adding that this makes him feel like he doesn’t have to choose a favorite.
He also thinks that both actresses will be able to handle the task just fine and that makes him excited to see what they turn out.
Who do you think will be a better Snow White?
