EXCLUSIVE: 'Blancanieves' Clip Reimagines Snow White As A 1920s Matador − No Bull

The German fairytale Snow White gets a retro reinterpretation in Pablo Berger's enchanting Blancanieves. Set in 1920s Spain and shot as a black-and-white silent film, the ivory-skinned beauty in this update (lush-lipped Macarena García) doesn't just do housework for a pack of idiosyncratic little dudes. She follows her beloved father's footsteps into the corrida to become a revered matador.  more »

Snow White and the Huntsman Reigns Atop Box Office; What Did You Watch?

Snow White and the Huntsman

Brava to the dewy-cheeked Kristen Stewart, who opened Snow White and the Huntsman, the weekend's number one movie, by swinging a sword and championing girl power without having to kiss a single vampire! (Those two hunky human suitors and the riveting fabulosity that was Charlize Theron didn't hurt either.) Nice to see girls ruling while boys drooled over the box office -- well, their male-driven movies (Men in Black 3, Avengers, Battleship), anyway. Tell us what you saw this weekend as we go to the receipts!

Kristen Stewart or Chris Hemsworth... or Neither: Who's the Fairest Box Office Draw for Snow White and the Huntsman?

Snow White and the Huntsman (Getty Images)

You might guess most folks flocking to theaters this weekend for Snow White and the Huntsman are the legions of diehard fans of Twilight's Kristen Stewart, who stars in the fantasy adventure as the sword-swinging Snow White. Maybe, even, they'll come for co-star Chris Hemsworth — he of Thor and Avengers fame. But surprise, surprise — who'd have thought the big draw, at least for folks who hit opening day today, would be neither of SWATH's up-and-coming talent?

REVIEW: Kristen Stewart Makes a Feisty But Boring Princess in Snow White and the Huntsman

Snow White and the Huntsman

Why can’t heroines just be heroines anymore, instead of micromanaged personalities who may as well have the words “Role Model” tattooed across their foreheads? That’s the fate suffered by poor Kristen Stewart as the warrior princess athlete orphan Christ figure Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman. She’s not just Joan of Arc — she’s Joan of Archetypes.

New Snow White and the Huntsman Trailer: Yep, Pretty Dark

Rupert Sanders On Dark Snow White and the Huntsman, 'Twilight Girl' Kristen Stewart, and Tarsem’s Mirror, Mirror

Snow White and the Huntsman

It may be indicative of Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders’ fearlessness – or his newness, this being his feature debut – that, after presenting much-anticipated footage to fans yesterday at WonderCon, he nonchalantly dropped the vivid phrase “dwarf gangbangs” into a discussion about his dark (and yes, likely PG-13) allegorical fairytale actioner. (Now that’s how you get the attention of a certain demographic.) For the record, there are no such scenarios in June's action-packed SWATH, but there were many more revelations and key insights to be had into Sanders’ take on the age-old tale, which stars Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and debuts two months after that other Snow White movie dances into theaters.

Lily Collins in Mirror, Mirror

Sam Raimi's Evil Dead reboot, which begins filming in New Zealand this spring, has found a new star to fill the shoes of original Ash Bruce Campbell, so to speak: 22-year-old British-born actress Lily Collins, who'll next be seen playing Snow White to Julia Roberts' evil queen in Tarsem's fairytale adaptation Mirror Mirror. Let that sink in, Evil Deadites... deep breaths... now hit the jump for more details.

Nick Frost on Tintin, Spielberg Love, The World's End, and Snow White and the Huntsman

Nick Frost on Tintin, Spielberg Love, The World's End, and Snow White and the Huntsman

In the decade or so since Nick Frost first made a name for himself on the BBC comedy series Spaced, much has happened. For starters, he's not waiting tables at that Mexican restaurant. He's moved with ease from television to film, most famously in genre riffs Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (with Spaced comrades Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg), and in the alien geek ode Paul (which he co-wrote and stars in with Pegg). Also notably, Frost has ventured out from the fold in films like Pirate Radio and the forthcoming Snow White and the Huntsman. And, with this week's The Adventures of Tintin, he notches another milestone: Working with his hero, Steven. Steven Spielberg.

Watch Julia Roberts Overshadow Snow White in First Mirror, Mirror Trailer

Did you think that the Snow White and the Huntsman trailer starring Kristen Stewart was a little too dark? Did you find yourself wishing for Bollywood-like dance numbers, a wide-eyed princess, Armie Hammer's impersonation of a dog and Julia Roberts attempting (and failing) to play evil? If you answered yes to these questions, then does Hollywood have the Snow White movie for you! It's Tarsem Singh's Mirror, Mirror and now, the very first trailer is available to view.

Watch the Snow White and the Huntsman Teaser Trailer: Breaking Dwarf

Here's what I've gathered from the new Snow White and the Huntsman trailer: Charlize Theron's Evil Queen is pissed, Kristen Stewart's Snow White is innocent, and the color saturation of this fairytale world looks like a Crayola-dappled Middle Earth. Pretty spectacular.

Tarsem on Going Mainstream with Immortals and the Race to Finish Mirror, Mirror Before Snow White

Tarsem on Going Mainstream with Immortals and the Race to Finish Mirror, Mirror Before Snow White

Some directors clearly have no filter and suffer for it; others choose to live altogether filter-less, playing the game their own way, on their own terms. Which is why earlier this year Movieline anointed Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) the honey badger of Hollywood; an indie film talent recently gone mainstream -- who wore a homemade shirt proclaiming "I've been media trained" at WonderCon -- Tarsem's infamously cheeky public persona might threaten to overtake his work if only his films, just three features to date counting this week's Immortals, weren't so distinctive and gorgeous.
