Take another look @ actress Kristen Stewart ("Twilight") in a recent issue of "Interview" magazine:
"...Stewart, now 24, grew up in L.A.—grew up on the film sets where her parents work behind the camera in Hollywood. As 'Joan Jett' in 'The Runaways' (2010), the translation from chill movie star to chill rock star is seamless and expectedly wonderful.
"And playing the live-wire Beat 'Marylou' in Walter Salles's adaptation of Kerouac's 'On the Road' (2012)...
"...Stewart's cool becomes almost tangible, a magical dust she scatters around her...
"...and for her performance, Stewart was the first American actress to be nominated »

Elsa Pataky just posted yet another too-cute-for-words photo of her hunky hubby, Chris Hemsworth, playing with their daughter India, and it's a doozy.

It gets a tad heavy-handed, but my eyes welled with tears of geeky joy at the film’s embrace of an optimism it steadfastly refuses to see as old-fashioned. I’m “biast” (pro): love George Clooney; big Sf geek
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
We geeks have been getting teased and taunted by the prospect of Disney and director Brad Bird’s (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Ratatouille) Tomorrowland for so long now, without getting anything more than vague hint of what the movie is actually about, that it seems inevitable that the actual film must be a disappointment. So is it?
Not at all. In fact, it’s a glorious reminder — in this era of reboots and remakes and sequels and based-on-something-else movies — of the joy of discovery that we get far less frequently at the movies these days. »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Trek 3 film.
Lindelof produced the first two films in the relaunched franchise, writing the second instalment, but working on Tomorrowland and his HBO TV show The Leftovers meant he had to step away from the third. In the interview, Lindelof talks about what he knows of Star Trek 3’s story so far:
“It’s really about the beginning of the five year mission. It’s establishing the crew after they’ve been out there and together for a while. But I don’t know anything about the plot.”
Which is…pretty much what everyone expected, seeing how Star Trek Into Darkness ends with »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek 3 movies. Because they’re both pretty geeky (and one of them is best buds with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams).
While getting excited about the impending return of Luke, Leia and Han, Lindelof spoke about whether he would ever take on a Star Wars movie down the line:
“Obviously Star Wars really made me want to be a filmmaker, so the possibility that I could work on one of those films in the future would be truly a dream come true.”

Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' dancing, with Garrett Hedlund on the right Down memory lane: Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' images At the time best known as The Twilight Saga's conflicted human Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart was cast as the exuberant Marylou in Walter Salles' film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic 1950s novel On the Road. Salles had been impressed with Stewart's pre-Twilight work in Sean Penn's Into the Wild. Based on LuAnne Henderson, Kerouac's close buddy Neal Cassady's first wife, Marylou is described as a "beautiful little sharp chick." Apparently, one who also likes to move seductively to the sound of music – as can be attested by the Kristen Stewart picture above, which first came out online in early 2011. Besides Stewart, On the Road also features Garrett Hedlund – at the time best known for Tron: Legacy – as Dean Moriarty, »

Mad Max: Fury Road won’t be Charlize Theron’s only “badass” role in the near future. Stunt performers/coordinators David Leitch and Chad Stahelski made a big splash last year with their Keanu Reeves-fronted actioner John Wick, and while they’re currently actively developing John Wick 2, they’ll first turn their attention to a female-led actioner starring one hell of an actress. Per Deadline, Charlize Theron is set to star in The Coldest City with Leitch and Stahelski directing, and production planning to get underway this October in Germany. Based on the Antony Johnston graphic novel of the same name, the thriller revolves around a super spy (Theron) who is spurred into action when an underground MI6 officer is killed just before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Theron will also produce the project, which boasts a screenplay by Kurt Johnstad (300: Rise of an Empire) and »

Sam Claflin, who played Snow White's (Kristen Stewart) love interest William in 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman, will be returning for the upcoming prequel The Huntsman. The casting is somewhat surprising, though, since Kristen Stewart is not coming back as Snow White. In the original, it was William's kiss that broke Snow White's spell, but in the sequel, William is only said to have a small, supporting role.
The plot is set before Snow White and the Huntsman, centering on how The Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Charlize Theron) first crossed paths, long before either of them met Snow White. Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith also star in the prequel. It isn't known if the production is eyeing other Snow White and the Huntsman stars to return for this new adventure.
Claflin appearance will only be a small supporting one this time out. Kristen Stewart is not expected to return as Snow White with the character unlikely to be a part of the film.
That isn't the only project Claflin is involved in today though. It has just been announced that the actor will topline "Robin Friday, »

A double dose of Sam Claflin news this fine Friday, and appropriately one of the stories is Friday-related. The actor will be playing Robin Friday, the ill-starred but supremely louche Reading and Cardiff striker, in the long-gestating film of his life. His agent has been busy because Claflin has also signed on to return for Snow White And The Huntsman sequel, The Huntsman, in the role of Snow White’s love interest, William.There’s no danger he’ll mix the two up and scythe down Snow White with a two-footed lunge, largely because Kristen Stewart is unlikely to return as the mirror-bothering princess. Instead Claflin, who’s earmarked for a small supporting role, will be joined by franchise newbies Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt, with Charlize Theron back as Queen Ravenna. Nick Frost, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith are also aboard.More intriguing is the Friday story. »
Previous reports have confirmed that the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman sequel/spin-off The Huntsman already has plans to bring back a few actors from the first film, including Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Nick Frost, but now new reports are coming in saying that Sam Claflin will be reprising his role as well. At this point, it really does seem like Kristen Stewart is the only actor not being invited to this party. The news comes to us from The Wrap, which says that Claflin has signed a deal that will see him return to the role of William, the son of Vincent Regan's character Duke Hammond and the love interest for Snow White in Snow White And The Huntsman. For those of you hoping that the actor will have an expanded part in the upcoming spin-off, however, I do have some disappointing news, as Clafin is »
Sam Claflin, who played Snow White’s love interest William in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” will return for Universal’s sequel “The Huntsman,” which focuses on Chris Hemsworth’s titular character, TheWrap has learned. Claflin will reprise his role as William, Snow White’s childhood best friend whose tender kiss broke the spell in the first film. He’ll appear in a small supporting role, and despite his casting, Kristen Stewart is not expected to appear in “The Huntsman.” Charlize Theron is returning as Queen Ravenna, and she’ll be joined by new additions Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt as the film’s villain. »

The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that the former Game Of Thrones star is in talks to appear in Training Day director Antoine Fuqua’s update of the 1960 film, which itself was a remake of the 1954 Japanese film Seven Samurai.
Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective) and John Lee Hancock (Snow White And The Huntsman) have contributed to the screenplay, while already on board to star are Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Wagner Moura and Haley Bennett. Byung-hun Lee, set to be seen this summer in Terminator Genisys, is also reported to be joining.
While Momoa is set to play a bad-guy in the movie, it appears the project is still on the look out for its big bad, a gold baron that targets a small town. »

Charlize Theron wants girls to realise that being a feminist "doesn't mean that you hate men".
The actress spoke with Elle UK about gender inequality in Hollywood, and explained how she negotiated equal pay for upcoming film The Huntsman.
On the pay disparity in the cast of American Hustle, she said: "When I thought about the temperature out there - with finding out what Jennifer [Lawrence] and Amy [Adams] were being paid on a set with guy actors who are their counterparts...
"They're just as good as any of the guys on there. Yeah, that pissed me off!"
On her own salary negotiation, she added: "I have to give them credit because once I asked, they said yes. They did not fight it. And maybe that's the message - that we just need to put our foot down.
"This is a good time for us to bring this to a place of fairness, »
