Last summer, the blockbuster movie cause celebre among a certain audience was "Edge Of Tomorrow." The film barely crossed $100 million domestically — not great numbers for a tentpole summer movie — and there were many complaints about the marketing of the film, and even the title. Some felt that Warner Bros. didn't do a good job in handling the movie even months after it was released, with co-star Emily Blunt particularly vocal recently. "I loved 'All You Need Is Kill,' personally. I thought it was more ironic and totally more than a movie, you know?" she told Collider about the original title of the film. The actress further elaborated with ScreenCrush, saying, "I wish they’d shown more of the humor and the relationship in the marketing. And I love Warner Bros., I do love them, but I think the movie seemed to be, from everyone’s reaction, 'Oh my God, »

Universal Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to its "Snow White and the Huntsman," which grossed almost $400 million worldwide back in 2012. The new movie is called "The Huntsman" and will focus on the title character, played by Chris Hemsworth (Thor). We already know that Kristen Stewart won't return as the Snow White and now comes word that the film will bring back only two dwarves. According to Deadline, Eddie Marsan ("Ray Donovan") is too busy, while Nick Frost and Toby Jones never agreed to return for a second installment. It has yet to be revealed which two dwarves will make an appearance. "The Huntsman" will co-star Charlize Theron as evil queen Ravenna, and possibly Emily Blunt as a villain. It will be directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who earned an Oscar nomination in the visual effects category for his work on the first film. The new movie is set to hit theaters on April 22nd, »
The sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman" already won't feature Kristen Stewart's Snow White. Now, Deadline reports, most of her seven dwarves are getting axed, too. Only two dwarves will be in the "The Huntsman," though it's unclear exactly which two.
It is known that Nick Frost ("Cuban Fury"), Toby Jones ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier") and Eddie Marsan ("Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows") will definitely not be in the movie. Marsan has a scheduling conflict with his work on Showtime's "Ray Donovan." And Bob Hoskins died last year, so he won't be part of the project either.
"The Huntsman" is a prequel that will show the titular character (Chris Hemsworth) and Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) crossing paths before the events of the first movie. Emily Blunt is on board to play a villain, reportedly a Snow Queen who is Ravenna's sister.

At this point, watching the development of The Huntsman has become something of a sport. The sequel to 2012’s phenomenally successful Snow White And The Huntsman is now a case-study in what can be achieved when Universal has the commitment of two stars, a confirmed release date, and then just holds on tight.
When the first film opened to great fanfare and financial success, the idea of a sequel was immediately and predictably bandied about. The main cast – Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron – was on board and happy to return. Then came a wave of high profile controversy surrounding Stewart and the film’s director, Rupert Sanders – which led to both of them stepping away from the project. But, with Hemsworth and Theron still attached, a release date was set for April 22nd 2016, and attentions turned to the development of a screenplay, without Snow White in it.

Deadline reports that only two of the seven dwarves from the first film will be back, though which dwarves they are is still unclear. Three of them though - actors Nick Frost, Toby Jones and Eddie Marsan - are Not going to return.

Universal Pictures is currently moving forward with The Huntsman, a sequel to their 2012 action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman that will primarily focus on Chris Hemsworth's title character and Charlize Theron as the evil Ravenna, with Emily Blunt also in talks for an unspecified villain role. We already know that Kristen Stewart is not returning as Snow White, but a new report from Deadline reveals that Nick Frost, Toby Jones and Eddie Marsan, who played three of the seven dwarfs in Snow White and the Huntsman, will not be back for the follow-up.
The sequel will only feature two of the dwarfs, although it isn't entirely clear yet which two they will be. Eddie Marsan was forced to bow out due to schedule complications with Showtime's Ray Donovan, while both Nick Frost and Toby Jones "appear not to have agreed on terms for the second installment." The remaining dwarfs »
Exclusive: It’s not just Snow White who’ll be missing from Universal’s The Huntsman. Most of the seven dwarves won’t be in the film either, Deadline has learned.
Nick Frost (Cuban Fury), Toby Jones (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows) won’t be reprising their roles as the pint-sized companions from 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman. That’s partly due to the fact that The Huntsman will only feature two dwarves, and it is still unclear who they will be. Marsan never was in the mix to return due to scheduling conflicts with his role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan, while Frost and Jones appear not to have agreed on terms to return for the second installment.

Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

Into the Woods, 2014.
Directed by Rob Marshall.
This adaptation of the popular fairytale-blending stage play finds a baker and his wife on the receiving end of an ultimatum from an evil witch: they must find and collect four specific items in the woods by the next two midnights if they ever want to conceive a child…
Into the Woods should have been a tonic. It should have been a blast of wild escapism in a month filled with deep, austere, thinking pictures like Foxcatcher and American Sniper. While they’re busy being serious and vying for awards, Into the Woods should have been busy injecting adrenalin into subdued audiences. But it wasn’t: why? They key factor in pinpointing the film’s failure is understanding that it »

The stars looked stunning this week! Emily Blunt looked regal in a long black dress for the Iwc Gala Dinner in Geneva, Switzerland on Tuesday.

The Spring/Summer 2015 runways have brought the focus back to the woman’s body with lingerie-inspired designs.

Visual effects supremo Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is in early talks to take over from Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) to direct the upcoming prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. Darabont left the project last week due to creative differences.
The film is set before the events of the hit 2012 movie and shows how Chris Hemsworth’s title character and Charlize Theron’s evil queen Ravenna met before the events in the previous film. Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) has been in talks to play a villain in the film.
Nicolas-Troyan has previously worked as a second-unit director on the first film and on Disney’s Maleficent, as well as working as visual effects supervisor on the likes of Pirates of the Caribbean and The Ring. In recent months, he has been linked to the upcoming Highlander remake.

Forget what teen movies of the early 2000s have taught you—ponytails are not just for dorks. Sure, the hairstyle may have a bad rap, but it's the awards season of the minimalist, and the ponytails that have hit the red carpet so far prove they're anything but boring. Leading ladies like Olivia Munn, Chrissy Teigen and Katie Holmes are only a few of the many stars who've opted for the classic updo this season. Although the style is easy to create, it's also quite versatile. So how come a ponytail can oftentimes look more like a rabid raccoon tail? "It's all in the preparation," said hairstylist Laini Reeves, whose roster of clients includes Emily Blunt, Kate Bosworth and Amy »
As predicted, Universal worked fast to fill the director’s chair on The Huntsman, its planned prequel to 2012 hit Snow White & the Huntsman. Following news that The Shawshank Redemption helmer Frank Darabont had exited the production, it has been announced that Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the second-unit director and visual effects supervisor on the first film, is signed to take the reins.
Nicolas-Troyan, who was Oscar-nominated for his work on the original, has many other credits to his name, including as second unit director on effects-heavy Maleficent. His past experience with the Huntsman property made him particularly appealing to Universal once Darabont abruptly departed over “creative differences.” The Huntsman will mark Nicolas-Troyan’s feature film directorial debut – though his name is attached to the Highlander reboot, his only past experience as a director is on a short called Carrot Vs Ninja.
Universal is pushing The Huntsman into production quickly, and it is »

Manuel here. The Costume Design Guild has announced that they’ll be celebrating Naomi Watts with the Lacoste Spotlight Award when they announce winners for their film, TV and commercial awards on February 17th. While they bill the award as honoring an “actor whose talent and career personifies an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design,” their choices so far (previous recipients include Anne Hathaway, Kate Beckinsale, Halle Berry and Emily Blunt) have yet to really reflect the award, no? Whither Keira, Nicole, Tilda or heck, even Colin Firth? The man can wear a sweater (among other things), you know.
Anyways, we should really focus on the positive and be thankful Watts was able to bounce back so quickly from that horrible triple-whammy of Movie 43, Adore and Diana. Let's just hope she can keep up the momentum going. And so »

The sequel to "Snow White and The Huntsman" has had a tumultuous road to production, but it looks like "The Huntsman" is about to get off the ground. It only took a week for Universal to replace Frank Darabont, who jumped ship last week; the studio has hired Cedric Nicolas-Troyan to direct this 2016 action/fantasy flick.
Nicolas-Troyan was the second unit director and visual effects supervisor for "Snow White and The Huntsman," and even got an Oscar nomination for the latter. He also worked on "Maleficent" as the second unit director. He's attached to a remake of "Highlander," but we all know there can be only one... Plus, "The Huntsman" is scheduled for release on April 22, 2016.
Meanwhile, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron will reprise their roles as the Huntsman and Ravenna, before Snow White (Kristen Stewart) appeared on the scene. Emily Blunt is currently in talks to play Ravenna's sister, »
