Frank Darabont in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2, Stewart not returning

Consider me a bit more interested in Snow White and the Huntsman And Their Sequel. First of all, this story allows me to revive one of my favorite headers, and secondly, everything but Kristen Stewart was good in the first fi...

MGM continuing Twilight without Pattinson or Stewart

Everyone loves R-Patz and K-Stew, correct? Him with his stupid hair and shiny face, her with her grumbly countenance and sloppy posture. Truly, 'tis a love story for the ages, except for when she cheated on him with a forty-y...

Trailer: Breaking Dawn Part 2

I am so glad that I decided to use quotations when I described the last "final" trailer. This new "final" final trailer has a lot of the same footage as the previous one (it even shares the same thumbnail!), but it comes wit...

[Update: Deadline reports that Universal has denied THR's original story, stating that there's no truth to reports that Stewart has been dropped from the potential sequel. This could still mean that Universal is just trying to avoid a PR problem for dropping a lead actress after she had a very public affair with a director, so either story is plausible until an official announcement about a Snow White sequel comes out.]

Allegedly (but not confirmed by Universal) due to her "scandalous" affair with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders, Kristen Stewart has been unceremoniously been written out of Universal's future plans for the Huntsman franchise. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal has scrapped the planned sequel to Snow White and instead will focus their efforts of producing a spin-off film centered around Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman. 

While the first Huntsman film didn't review too well, it was popular with a certain demographic, like my sister. For some reason, she loved the hell out of it. I'm not really sure why since Kristen Stewart has trouble emoting once she opens her mouth, and Hemsworth's Huntsman (say that five times fast) was extremely droll. We both agreed, however, that the film's sort of saving graces were Charlize Theron and the world looking really, really enchanting. 

Universal is focusing on the wrong character. I would prefer more of the cheesetastic Theron than more of Thor with an axe. I'm also not sure how much money the franchise will bring in now that "Twi-hards" like myself aren't going to be watching them now that K-Stew is no longer involved. Oh well, guess K-Stew can go back to sleeping in her large pile of money.

Trailer: On the Road

The second trailer for the On the Road adaptation has emerged. While sharing some of the same scenes as in the first trailer, the editing makes it feel more lively and upbeat. Reviews out of Cannes were pretty mixed for the highly-anticipated film, but my reservations will be held until the film is released in theaters around Christmas time. Is anybody else as excited about the film as I am?

New character posters for Snow White and the Huntsman

Is it just me, or is Charlize Theron's Queen Ravenna already stealing the show in Snow White and the Huntsman? Her poster is way cooler than Kristen Stewart's or Chris Hemsworth's bland character posters, and in the trailers ...
