Welcome to the age of teasing the teasing of the teasing of the trailer that will tease you.
Hollywood’s marketing geniuses are poking the bear with this trend. It’s pretty devious in fact. They know that sites like NerdBastards are always on the prowl for anything to keep the flow of information rolling. Now the powers that be in Hollywood can get four or five posts on various sites for just one trailer.
Their pulling a “Hanzel and Gretel” on us, leaving a trail of crumbs, right into the warming oven.
Wow, where did that come from?
So according to Chris Hemsworth, “The wait is almost over”—and he’s not talking about The Avengers, he’s introducing a sneak peek at the new trailer for his other big film, Snow White and the Huntsman.
Next Monday, the latest trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman will debut during NBC’sThe Voice. In Universal’s adaptation of the fairytale, Kristen Stewart plays Snow White and Oscar-winner Charlize Theron stars as the Evil Queen.
Snow White and the Huntsman is an action-adventure that turns the classic on its head. Instead of waiting for a Prince (Sam Claflin) to save the day, Snow White takes matters into her own hands. She trains with the Huntsman and is prepared to go to war with her nemesis.
The film definitely has a darker tone than its competitor Mirror Mirror which hits theaters March 30. There’s less comedy and more Chris Hemsworth wielding an ax. It doesn’t matter if it’s a hammer, a bat or a sword; he’s pretty good at throwing things.
Snow White and the Huntsman opens in theaters June 1.
The classic Snow White story has two adaptations hitting theaters this year, but Snow White and the Huntsman seems to be winning the popularity war before either has even been released.

Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins, Brian Gleeson and Johnny Harris, hits theaters June 1.
Poisoned apples, dwarves, axes, and a delightfully wicked Queen, what else could one ask for?
Here’s a new trailer for Universal Pictures Snow White and the Huntsman, which debuted as part of Charlize Theron‘s guest appearance on Top Chef. I guess foodies love fiction. Anyway, the preview is virtually identical to the first trailer accept for a few brand-new shots. In both trailers, it’s all about Miss Theron. She’s like “Oh hai, look at me! I’m playing a evil witch, aren’t I all bad-ass and evily?”. And I’m totally cool with that. I think Universal is smart for pimping out Charlize for this movie. Why? Because a girl who has NO facial expression whatsoever (Kristen Stewart) is Snow White. Blank stares don’t sell a movie!
While I’d love to bash Stewart some more, I think it’s best to say this movie looks legitimately awesome. Crazy and totally unexpected!
Directed by Rupert Sanders, the fantasy take on the classic fairytale also stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham, Ray Winstone, Lily Cole, Sam Spruell, Liberty Ross and Noah Huntley.
If you are planning on hitting the local cinema this holiday weekend to check out one of those talky picture shows, do not, and can not stress this enough, go see Twilight: Breaking Dawn. The movie might make you violently ill. There have been reports of moviegoers having seizures during the film, and not just because it is yet another Twilight movie.
Apparently the culprit something known as the ‘birthing scene’ (fyi, typing that in the context of a Twilight movie made be feel light headed) According to CBS News Sancramento, alleged Twihard, Brandon Gephart, had a seizure as a result of the scene. Gephart’s companion described it as “convulsing, snorting, and trying to breathe.” (Not sure if she meant what happend to Gephart or the actual scene in the movie) The CBS affiliate said that this is just one of multiple instances that have been happening throughout the country.
According to Dr. Michael G. Chez, the medical director of pediatric neurology and epilepsy for Sutter Sacramento, this maybe attributed to Condon’s scene – which involves multiple flashes of red, black and white colors triggering episodes of photosensitive epilepsy.
Joking aside, while the condition is rare, it is something the theaters might want to warn moviegoers about as these seizures can be violent and scary and many people may not be aware they suffer from photosensitive epilepsy.
Joking back on, if you get dragged or tricked into seeing it this weekend, you now when and what to fake to get the hell out of the theater. You can thank me later.
I’m sure you spend all of your time wondering where the child stars of movies past are now. We’ve compiled a fair amount of before and after pictures for y’all to check out, some of which you probably expect and some of which will be a surprise to you. Let’s get started!
Let’s start with something that we all expect to see. Taylor Momsen is most known for her role as Cindy Lou Who in the 2000 film, How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Over the course of the years, she landed a role on Gossip Girl and she’s now some badass singer chick. Or something. She blames her parents for her shitty attitude and bitchiness, actively tells young girls to twiddle themselves and flashes her tits at concerts. No big deal. She’s really matured!
Today, take your first look at the nifty NEW teaser trailer and character one-sheets for Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Hunstmans which have just debuted on iTunes Trailers Trailers.
I think it actually looks good. Apart from Kristen Stewart. I like that a fairytale, which has been done to death, is being approached with dark and gritty intent. Suffice to say, this trailer certainly convinced me that this might not end up being the shitfest I thought it would be.
Is this movie trying to say that Kirsten Stewart is more beautiful than Charlize Theron?
We’re gonna have to wait until Thursday for the new trailer but until then you can feast your eyes on the Snow White and the Huntsman Banner.
Who knows, this thing might be good. Perhaps Kristen can play a character that doesn’t depend on her next life’s breath from a brooding, sparkling, pale emo guy. It would be nice to see her kick some ass. Hell, maybe she could even smile in this one. I can just imagine the scene on set:
Kristen – “I’m having some trouble with this stage direction here.”
Charlize – “Oh, what’s the problem?”
Kristen – “It says I’m supposed to smile.”
Charlize – “Oh my, perhaps you should just think of it as a grimace with teeth showing, or a frown, upside down.”
Now this NerdBastard is not saying that Kristen can’t act her way out of a paper bag. That’s not been proven yet because no one has found a paper bag big enough yet. We can count on the fact that Charlize can play evil quite convincingly, go put Monster on your Netflix Que if you haven’t seen it already.
Here’s the fancy, flowery, glittering description from the producers:
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
I’m guessing you don’t, and that’s because we haven’t had a chance to see it — yet. But it did totally happened. Kind of. Kristin Stewart, best known as Bella from The Twilight Saga, straight up punched Chris Hemsworth, title character of Marvel’s Thor, when they were filming a scene for their upcoming flick, Snow White and the Huntsman. She wasn’t supposed to hit him, but I guess the girl doesn’t know how to pull her punches.
And hell, more power to her! From now on she can boast, “I punched the thunder god in the eye and lived to tell the tale – Aha!” Stewart recounted the incident when she made an appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,
It made such a sound. Girls, if you’ve ever wondered if it works, it works! It literally spun him right around…I basically knocked him right out of his close-up.
I was supposed to miss him. I’m not proud though. Instantly, tears sprung to my eyes. Like, ‘Ahh, are you okay?’ But it will definitely be in the movie.
New reason why I must see Snow White and the Huntsman, to see Thor get clocked in the face by a girl. Huzzah.
You can watch the clip from Leno here where Stewart tells the story, quite animatedly, but make sure you fast forward through the intense screaming. Or at least lower your speakers.
It’s hilarious how there is a marked difference in the amount of on-screen chemistry there is between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson now. I actually have not seen anything from the Twilight movies since New Moon, and even though I was smashed at the time, it was disgustingly clear that a cardboard box and a hobo have more chemistry. (We played this ridiculous drinking game where we took a shot each time Bella blinked. Yes, you can imagine how plastered we got after that.) But, now… Well, after Kristen Stewart publicly admitted that she’s fucking her costar… it all makes sense. It still isn’t mind blowing chemistry, but the change totally makes sense.
Anyway, we’ve got two new clips for y’all: the first one is pretty lovey dovey and the second one is super short and attempts to build up the action although I swear 50% of it includes preggo Bella.
This November, twihards around the world will be breaking out glitter and getting all broody as The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part 1 hits theaters. Oi! We only have one more of these to endure people, we can over come!
Sadly, my word means shit to a theater full of pretweens interested in watching Bella and Edward knock nasty with each other. That’s right… vampire sex, fun for the whole family.
Twilight has become one of those franchises that while a lot of people despise it, even more people flat out LOVE it with a searing passion that burns away any doubt they have.
So, I will not say anything more about it. Instead, just watch the newest trailer for the movie embedded below, and prepare for the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking DawnPart One.
Here’s the synopsis:
In the highly anticipated next chapter of the blockbuster The Twilight Saga, the new found married bliss of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is cut short when a series of betrayals and misfortunes threatens to destroy their world.
After their wedding, Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth, Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal.
But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fearsome council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle.
The suspenseful and deeply romantic Breaking Dawn continues the epic tale of supernatural fantasy and passionate love that has made The Twilight Saga a worldwide phenomenon.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking DawnPart One will be released to theaters November 18th, 2011.
