Yesterday, an official promotional photo gave a very teasing glimpse of Mackenzie Foy as Renesmee, the vampire offspring of Edward and Bella in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. In that single little image, young Renesmee was just barely peeking out from behind Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as her parents, but today, there are two magazine covers and eight actual stills from the climactic Twilight movie. No fewer than seven include clear looks at the pivotal new character, along with a whole bunch of other familiar players.
A new image promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 illustrates some of the benefits of becoming a vampire. Namely, cool jackets, puffily photogenic hair, immortality, and killer boots. High cheekbones are also included, with a potential option for an adorable, precocious vampire baby named Renesmee, who peeks out from behind her familiar parents in this new picture for the climactic installment of the hugely popular franchise.
Opening in theaters on June 1st is the highly anticipated new film Snow White and the Huntsman, which is a "Lord of the Rings-style" retelling of the classic fairy tale. The film was helmed by first time director Rupert Sanders and stars Twilight's Kristen Stewart in the title role. In addition to Stewart, the movie features an all-star cast that includes Oscar-winner Charlize Theron (Young Adult), Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers), and Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), as well as Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit), Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger), Ray Winstone (Edge of Darkness), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) and Nick Frost (Attack the Block) as the Dwarves.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Sam Claflin at the London Hotel in Los Angeles to discuss his work on Snow White and the Huntsman. The actor talked about the new film, his initial reaction to the script, how he got cast in the film, changes that he made to his character, the rivalry between Prince William and the Huntsman, William's love for Snow White, working with both Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, collaborating with director Rupert Sanders, archery training, and the movie's stunning visual effects.
With four blockbusters in the bag and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 ready to cap off the hugely profitable film series, Summit Entertainment could probably market the last film in the franchise with nothing more than classified ads reading, "One last Twilight, November 16th." Nonetheless, there will be giant marketing campaign to ensure that the second half is Breaking Dawn is appropriately huge, and today's two new images are but a hint of the promotional fatigue that will set in by Thanksgiving.
First time feature film director Rupert Sanders brought his highly anticipated re-imagining of the Classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale Snow White to WonderCon 2012 in Anaheim, California this year and the film received an enthusiastic response from fans and critics alike. Snow White and the Huntsman, which opens in theaters on June 1st retells the iconic tale in what has been described as “Lord of the Rings-style” starring actress Kristen “Don’t call me Bella” Stewart (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1) in the title role.
The film’s impressive cast also includes Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron (Young Adult) as the Queen, Chis Hemsworth (Thor) as the Huntsman, and actors Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Johnny Harris (Atonement), Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit), Toby Jones (The Hunger Games), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows), Brendan Gleeson (The Guard), Ray Winstone (Edge of Darkness), and Nick Frost (Attack the Block) as the Dwarves, which there are now eight of.
After the Snow White and the Huntsman presentation and panel, which featured some of the first footage to be seen from the film, as well as stars Kristen Stewart, and Charlize Theron, director Rupert Sanders had a chance to speak with IAR and several other members of the press about the upcoming film, the classic story it is based on, the cast, magic, and the possibility of a sequel.
Ladies and gentlemen – but let's be honest here, mostly ladies – here we have a teaser to a teaser trailer for a movie based on half of a book. By which I mean to say that a video excerpt from the teaser trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
It's a really quick look, clocking in at under twenty seconds and consisting of basically five shots. Not a word of dialogue is spoken, nor does anything overly dramatic happen, but presumably fans of Stephenie Meyer's novels and the films will see much to get them psyched.
Universal Pictures held court for an hour at WonderCon to present footage and host a panel for the movies Snow White and the Huntsman and Battleship.
First on tap was Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristin Stewart (Twilight), Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Charlize Theron (Young Adult). A movie that comes out later this year, it was directed by Rupert Sanders (a relative directorial newcomer), who stepped on-stage to speak with the panel moderator about filming his own raw medieval take on a story that is traditionally known as a rosy-cheeked fairy tale.
You may have thought that, with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 having dominated the box office and gone on its merry way, you'd not be seeing any Twilight-related items until later this year when the hype for Breaking Dawn - Part 2 will inevitably begin in earnest. Well, you thought wrong. Part 1 arrives on Blu-ray and DVD in ten days, and in order to build some awareness for this consumer event, Summit Entertainment has released an online tease of a special feature from the Breaking Dawn Blu-ray.
Summit Entertainment has formally announced a home entertainment street date for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1. For the most part, Blu-ray and DVD releases take place on Tuesdays, with certain titles occasionally dropping on Fridays. This year, Valentine's Day falls on a Tuesday, so you'd think, "Twilight + Valentine's Day = money avalanche." You're almost undoubtedly correct, but Breaking Dawn won't be dropping on February 14th. Instead, it will be available for purchase on February 11th. That's a Saturday, which is pretty odd. It makes perfect sense that Summit wants to give consumers several days before Valentine's to get those Blu-rays purchased and wrapped, but why not Friday? Either way, now you know exactly when the latest round of Kristen Stewart on Robert Pattinson action will be at a store near you.
Over the next few weeks, we'll treated to an onslaught of big event movies in time for Christmas, while the prestige pictures currently in limited release will expand and be joined by more. It'll be a veritable moviegoing cornucopia, with all manner of variety to suit anyone's holiday tastes. For now, though, the number one movie in America is New Year's Eve, a film that is basically the cinematic equivalent of KFC's Famous Bowl: a calculated yet sloppy mash of starch and heart disease.* The mega-ensemble debuted in first place, followed by The Sitter, and, in third place, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, which sat atop the box office heap for three consecutive weeks.
