31 July 2014 4:11 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Universal Pictures has set a release date for the Snow White and the Huntsman prequel, and moved the debut of the Mummy's reboot.

The studio confirmed on Thursday (July 31) that The Huntsman will hit cinemas on April 22, 2016, with Chris Hemsworth returning as the titular hero.

It was recently announced that the prequel will focus solely Hemsworth's character The Huntsman, with Kristen Stewart's Snow White being excised entirely.

The Huntsman's April 2016 release date means that filmmaker Alex Kurtzman's reboot of The Mummy is moving to June 26, 2016.

The Mummy is being written by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) and Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), and will re-launch Universal's monster movie franchise. »

Snow White Prequel (Stupidly) Drops Snow White, Gets New Title and Release Date

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel? Well, it does — and that’s because it is. So, instead of calling Snow White and the Huntsman 2, or rather, The Huntsman, a "sequel," the film is now being referred to as a "spin-off" — or, to be more precise, »

New Release Date Announced for The Mummy Reboot

31 July 2014 3:42 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Yesterday we reported that The Mummy reboot was finally starting to emerge from its cinematic tomb with a new director, Alex Kurtzman, announced at the helm. Originally slated to come out in theaters on April 22nd, 2016, Universal Pictures has already revealed a new release date for the upcoming Mummy movie that will have fans waiting just a bit longer to see this monster in action.

Deadline reveals that The Mummy reboot will now hit cinemas on June 26th, 2016. Since the release has only been delayed by about two months, there shouldn’t be any major holdbacks in production.

The reason for the move comes from another big Universal property that filled in the abandoned April 22nd slot: The Huntsman, the prequel to 2012′s Snow White and the Huntsman that will be directed by Frank Darabont (showrunner on Season 1 of The Walking Dead, director of The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption »

The Huntsman Prequel Set For April 2016, The Mummy Moves to June

31 July 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I never saw Snow White and the Huntsman, it just didn't seem like my thing.  Which makes it kind of hard for me to be interested in a followup or spin-off aside from the fact that one of my favorite directors, Frank Darabont, will be helming it (he also did the newest draft of the script).  But it's coming anyway, and now we get the news that this new film, called The Huntsman, is actually a prequel (which makes more sense).  And yes, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron will be returning (although Kristen Stewart won't).  The new film hits on April 22nd, 2016. Yesterday we also got the news that Alex Kurtzman would be directing The Mummy reboot, part of a larger cinematic universe for Universal.  That film has now moved to get out of The Huntsman's way and will come out on June 24th, 2016.  Hit the jump for more on »

'Snow White and the Huntsman' prequel has release date but no Kristen Stewart

31 July 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Snow White may be out of the picture, but "The Huntsman" is ready to return in 2016. The prequel will take place before 2012’s "Snow White and the Huntsman" and will reveal how Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Charlize Theron) first crossed paths. Kristen Stewart, who played Snow White in the first film, won't be returning. Universal has announced that "The Huntsman" will open April 22, 2016, which will push the studio's reboot of "The Mummy" to Jun 24 of that year. For the prequel, "Snow White" director Rupert Sanders is being replaced by Frank Darabont, the Oscar-nominated helmer of "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile," who was also the original showrunner on "The Walking Dead." Darabont is also re-writing the screenplay, originally written by Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos. Joe Roth ("Maleficent," "Alice in Wonderland") will once again produce. Summer 2016 is filling up fast, although there are no other major films yet »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 14th 2014

14 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

In a canny move surprising few, Amazon have gone and echoed a pattern Netflix began around a year ago and nabbed a series from the Us where they will add an episode each week the day after its Us broadcast. This practice worked well with Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn in the past year and the publicity it got could well be the reason why you might encounter so many people who are only now making their way through five seasons of Breaking Bad via Netflix. So the show in question which be all exclusive up in here is the new Steven Spielberg/Halle Berry joint called Extant.

I knew nothing about this show going in and that is perhaps the best way to view it. I’m not going to claim this is the new Lost or whatever at this point but the first episode was ‘promising »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Spike Lee Joint Collection’ Releases Are Solid Starting Point

4 July 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Who of our modern filmmakers will justify lavish, career-spanning box sets in the next generation (presuming there is such a thing and we’re not 100% digital)? We’ve seen Oliver Stone, Martin Scorsese, and Alfred Hitchcock sets in recent years but who will get the same treatment in ten or twenty years?

One man who I’d love to see dissected from first film to last is the essential Spike Lee. He has had an undeniably spotty career with films both considered masterpieces and complete failures. But Spike is always working, always trying something new, always willing to challenge himself and the viewer. Did his “Oldboy” remake work? No. He picks himself up, dusts himself off, and gets back to it. Spike has been everywhere lately, promoting and discussing the 25th anniversary of his masterpiece, “Do the Right Thing,” and so someone figured it was a good time to release »

Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance

1 July 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sure, it would be easy to rattle off all sorts of movie titles that feature the name of colors. Go ahead and knock yourself out: The Pink Panther, Red Dawn, Yellow Submarine, Purple Rain, Blue Velvet, Goldfinger, etc. The listing seems rather endless. However, can one come up with color-contained movie titles that also carry some messaging of substance and contemplation?  Maybe films such as Fried Green Tomatoes or Steel Magnolias are color-coated entries that carries some relevance in its messaging about feminine empowerment for instance. In Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance let us look are the leading selections that have both color (in title) and substance (in thematic forethought) attached to its skin. Hey, maybe one can make a case for Pink Flamingos but The Blue Lagoon might be stretching things a bit…don’t you think? The Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color »

Frank Darabont in talks to direct 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2'

27 June 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Deadline reports Frank Darabont is in final talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2.

The site notes, however, that Darabont has a version of the story that would focus exclusively on the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth), and it’s not even known if Snow White (Kristen Stewart) would return for the sequel of sorts. (Might it be called The Search for Snow?) Reps for Universal and Darabont didn’t immediately respond to a request for confirmation.

Darabont previously was an executive producer of The Walking Dead and directed The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, among other films. »

Frank Darabont in Talks to Direct The Huntsman

27 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I love the films of Frank Darabont. The guy knows how to tell an amazing story. I'm just not sure about this possible next project of his. THR is reporting the the director is currently in talks with Universal Pictures to direct a movie called The Huntsman, which is described as a spin-off movie of Snow White and The Huntsman. Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are expected to reprise their roles in the film. Kristin Stewart however will not be coming back, and I can't see anyone complaining about that.

The only thing I liked about the first movie was Theron's performance. She was awesome, but the film itself as a whole was terribly disappointing. I was so unimpressed that I have no interest in seeing another film set in that world. Even with Darabont directing, the idea of it still doesn't do anything for me. It seems like one »

Frank Darabont circling 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2' - will Kristen Stewart return?

26 June 2014 5:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Frank Darabont may be heading to fantasy land for his next feature. The "Walking Dead" creator is in talks to direct "Snow White and the Huntsman 2," the followup to the 2012 action-fantasy flick that starred Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, according to Deadline. The first film was directed by Rupert Sanders and grossed nearly $400 million worldwide (albeit on a steep $170 million budget) despite receiving only mixed reviews from critics. Interestingly, the film is being discussed as a spinoff as opposed to a direct sequel, with the plot centering on Hemsworth's Huntsman character. There's no word yet as to whether Stewart will reprise the title role, though she did seem excited about the possibility in an interview conducted a few months after the first film's release. Granted, that was more than 18 months ago, and the general thrust of the project appears to have changed considerably since then. Darabont, whose departure »

Kristen Stewart dropped from Snow White 2, Frank Darabont to direct

26 June 2014 3:58 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kristen Stewart has apparently been dropped from the Snow White movie series.

The actress was expected to be returning to the franchise for Snow White and the Huntsman 2, but the sequel will now be a spinoff - The Huntsman - with Frank Darabont in line to direct, The Hollywood Reporter says.

Following the release of the first film in 2012, Stewart was reported to have had an affair with director Rupert Sanders. Studio Universal denied that Stewart was exiting the franchise at the time.

In The Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth is returning to play the title role, alongside Charlize Theron as the villain.

The Walking Dead's former showrunner Darabont is taking over from Sanders, whose 2012 movie took $396.6 million worldwide.

Darabont's most recent feature was 2007's The Mist, the latest in a series of Stephen King adaptations that he directed. He also worked on The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile.

Frank Darabont in Talks to Direct Snow White and the Huntsman Spin-off Starring Chris Hemsworth

26 June 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It was reported earlier this month that Frank Darabont was on the shortlist of directors to take over Snow White and the Huntsman 2 for Universal Pictures, but Deadline has tonight revealed that the Shawshank Redemption helmer is now the frontrunner to continue the story from Rupert Sanders’ 2012 movie.

However, Variety has since confirmed that he is actually in talks to direct a spin-off which will focus on the Huntsman character played by Thor and Avengers Assemble star Chris Hemsworth in the original.

Talk of a spin-off started back around the time that Snow White and the Huntsman was released, but Hemsworth’s busy schedule has more than likely stopped it from moving ahead before now. It’s unclear what this means for an actual sequel, but Kristen Stewart is expected to make a brief cameo appearance.

Snow White and the Huntsman made nearly $400 million at the worldwide box office, and »
