Because studios can’t always be shelling out money for intellectual property that they hope to turn into the next blockbuster franchise, Universal Pictures opted for the public domain fairytale of Snow White to turn into a gritty fantasy film series by way of Snow White and the Huntsman. But try as Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth might, all we got was a movie that was nowhere near being the fairest of them all. Watch the Snow White and the Huntsman Honest Trailer below to really dig into the movie. Read More »

Universal ditched the Snow White half of Snow White and the Huntsman some time ago, but the Huntsman will be back next year headlining his very own movie. And as of today, that movie has a new title, a new synopsis, and four first-look promotional images.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War has dished out four new character posters featuring Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, and Jessica Chastain, or, as I think of them, “Thor and three people the internet wishes would play Captain Marvel.” Get your The Huntsman first look after the jump.

Snow White (Kristen Stewart) will be sitting out Universal’s The Huntsman, and now it looks like most of her dwarf friends will be, too. Only two of the seven dwarves are expected to appear, according to a new report.
Still set to return are the evil queen (Charlize Theron), and of course the Huntsman himself (Chris Hemsworth). Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is directing. Find out who the Huntsman dwarves might be after the jump. Read More »
It’s been an up and down news cycle for The Huntsman, which will be Universal’s prequel to the 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman. First there was the news that it would leave out Snow White, but then came the announcement that Frank Darabont would write and direct.

We hope you weren’t too excited about the idea of Frank Darabont directing the Snow White and the Huntsman prequel, because that is no longer happening. The movie is happening, just not with Darabont as part of the package. The director dropped out of the endeavor this week. So now there’s The Huntsman, as the movie is called, with Chris Hemsworth set to return, but no Snow White (originally played by Kristen Stewart). But despite the fact that Darabont won’t direct The Huntsman there is good news, as a new lady villain is in the wings, with Emily Blunt in talks to play her. Read More »
