‘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, »

There are now two Universal-backed project – a modern reboot of The Mummy franchise and a new film set in the Snow White and the Huntsman universe – that are suddenly moving forward at a steady pace, after having looked all but dead for a while. Yesterday, we learned that the next Mummy movie has gained a new director in Alex Kurtzman, who is also serving as one of the chief architects for Universal’s resurrected classic monsters universe; today, the aforementioned Snow White project has been dated for 2016, with the Mummy having been pushed back a couple months to give it more room for landing.
Many a person was shocked when the news emerged ...

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 »

Universal Pictures have decided to push back the released date on their reboot of The Mummy by two months in order to slot in Frank Darabont's The Huntsman, which is a sequel to Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman. So, that means The Mummy reboot will open in theaters June 24, 2016 and The Huntsman will open April 22, 2016. The Huntsman will focus on Chris Hemsworth's role from the first film. The Hollywood Reporter has been told that Kristen Stewart ("Twilight") will not appear in it, but surprisingly Charlize Theron ("Mad Max: Fury Road"), who played the evil witch, will return. »
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 »

Universal Pictures is looking at a pretty profitable year in 2016. In addition to Ride Along 2, Warcraft, The Best Man Wedding, Bourne 5 and Skull Island, the studio has just added a high-profile prequel to its lineup, simultaneously bumping another big-budget reboot back two months. Let’s take the prequel first, then the reboot.
Tody, the studio unveiled Snow White and the Huntsman follow-up The Huntsman, which will count out Kristen Stewart to instead tell the story of how the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) first encountered villainous Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). Frank Darabont is set to direct the prequel, which was formerly known as Snow White and the Huntsman 2. It has been dated for April 22nd, 2016.
The film previously slotted for that date, Alex Kurtzman’s remake of The Mummy, has been shifted by two months to June 24th, 2016. Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange) will be penning the script, about which details are currently scarce. »

It also confirms this isn't a sequel, it's a prequel as the film "expands to reveal how the fates of two characters, The Huntsman Eric and Ravenna, intersected before they met Snow White."

A couple of key release date changes today.
With Universal's "Snow White And The Huntsman" prequel nabbing the April 22nd 2016 release date this morning, the studio has pushed back Alex Kurtzmann's "The Mummy" reboot. Originally scheduled for that date, it will instead launch two months later on June 26 2016.
Next up, Will Canon's supernatural thriller "Demonic," based on an idea by James Wan, has scored a December 12th release this year through Dimension Films. Maria Bello and Frank Grillo star as a psychologist and detective respectively who question the surviving members of a group of amateur college ghost-hunters after five of them are found brutally murdered inside an abandoned home.
Finally, "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart made his directorial debut last summer filming an adaptation of Maziar Bahari's "Rosewater". Open Road acquired U.S. rights in May following a private Cannes screening, and now they've announced a platform rollout »

Universal is pushing back the release of its reboot of The Mummy by two months in order to give it a high-profile 2016 summer berth, while, at the same time, making a home for Frank Darabont's The Huntsman. Returning Chris Hemsworth in the title role, The Huntsman will debut in theaters April 22, The Mummy's old home. The Mummy will now debut June 24. Huntsman is a spinoff of Universal's box-office hit Snow White and the Huntsman, but this time out, Kristen Stewart won't appear as Snow White, although Charlize Theron reprises her role as the evil queen.

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.

The Huntsman, Universal‘s Snow White And The Huntsman prequel, is getting an April 22, 2016 release date. That means a later release for the studio’s The Mummy, which originally had that date but is moving to June 26 of that year. Both projects have been making news. Frank Darabont last month came aboard to direct Huntsman, a prequel that reveals how the fates of two characters — The Huntsman Eric and Ravenna — intersected before they met Snow White. Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are back for those roles, and Darabont has written the most recent draft of the script that […] »

Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig’s has a zig-zagging trajectory. Her debut "Italian for Beginners" was an inventive and populist take on the Dogme 95 manifesto via a romantic comedy which won several plaudits including the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2001. She made a few well-received films since, but it was 2009’s “An Education” that dropped the filmmaker on the global map in a big way. She stumbled with the mostly tone deaf romantic dramedy "One Day" starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, but critical redemption is right around with her latest film “The Riot Club.” Formerly titled “Posh,” the movie is a scathing dissection of the British class system and centers on two young men who are inducted into the exclusive, debaucherous company of Oxford’s elite "Riot Club.” Her cast is impressive too; a who’s who of English up and comers including Sam Claflin (“Snow White and the Huntsman »

Back in January, Thor: The Dark World co-writer Christopher Yost and Marvel Studios senior vice president of production and development Craig Kyle were tapped to pen the screenplay for Thor 3, but not much has been heard of the project since. At the time, we expected it to get a 2016 release date, but with Captain America 3 slated for May 6th and Doctor Strange all but confirmed for July 8th of that year, it looks like the earliest we’ll see Thor 3 is in 2017.
Marvel has three release dates claimed for 2017: May 5th, July 28th (which now belongs to James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2), and November 3rd. Could Thor 3 hit theaters that May or November, four years after the previous installment?

Late last month we learned that Frank Darabont was in talks to direct The Snow White And The Huntsman sequel. It has now been made official as Universal released an official press release which confirms Darabont and announced the new title: The Huntsman. Darabont also wrote the current draft of the screenplay which will in fact be a prequel to the first film with some returning cast members.

Pattinson and his Twilight co-star temporarily split and then reconciled in the wake of Stewart's admission, before ultimately calling it quits for good.
Speaking to Esquire UK, Pattinson discussed Stewart's admission of infidelity.
"S**t happens, you know?" he declared. "It's just young people… it's normal! And honestly, who gives a s**t?"
Pattinson went on to say that he was in fact unnerved by the immense attention that the press paid to the scandal.
"The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can't predict," he explained.
The actor continued: "It's like that scene in »
