Rumors connecting "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart and a certain fairest of them all (no, we're not talking about Robert Pattinson), have been circulating for months, but after a "Snow White and the Huntsman" producer confirmed via his Twitter page that Kristen was in final negotiations for the titular lead, it seems all but certain she'll face-off against evil Queen Grimhilde.
One Hollywood heavyweight throwing her support behind Kristen is her former "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke. E! Online spoke to the "Red Riding Hood" helmer, who said the role was a princessly fit for the 20-year-old actress. "I love it," Catherine gushed. "She's going to be a bad ass, learning how to hunt. That is perfect for Kristen! She's a kick-ass chick. She's going to do good in that."
Some endorsement, right? If KStew's loyal fan base gets half as excited about this project as Catherine seems to be, we could have a mega-blockbuster on our hands. But that raises an important question: Does Kristen have your support for Snow White? Vote in our poll after the jump!
Not even a week after news broke that eternally hunky Channing Tatum was shopping around a Peter Pan origin story penned by "Hunger Games" scribe Billy Ray, comes word that Sony Pictures is in negotiations to acquire the project Deadline is calling a "starring vehicle" for Mr. Abs Tatum. All fine and dandy—except am I the only one scratching my head over the possibility of a 30-year-old playing the boy who wouldn't grow up?
To be clear, no one has explicitly reported that Channing will don green tights as Peter, but from all reports, it sounds like a growing likelihood.
This wouldn't be the first time we've seen Peter as an adult—Robin Williams played a middle-aged Peter in the 1991 classic "Hook," but that live-action flick wasn't being billed as an "origin" story. Perhaps we'll watch Peter age throughout the years (kind of goes against the never growing up thing, but whatever) and Channing will be just one of several actors to take on the role? Otherwise, this project just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
What do you think, Crushers? Are you flying high at the prospect of Channing Tatum taking up residence in Neverland? Vote in our poll after the jump!
Following yesterday's debut of the second "Water for Elephants" trailer, I couldn't stop myself from writing an (admittedly) gushy recap/review of the latest video. But how could you blame me? The second trailer was fantastic. As I mentioned in my post, I couldn't have been happier that this view wasn't simply a re-edited version of the first. Instead, it highlighted a completely different angle of Sara Gruen's best-seller. There was more Robert Pattinson, more dialogue and more intrigue. It was an altogether enjoyable trailer, and I'll go so far as to say I liked it more than the first.
And I'm not the only one who felt that way. Tweets across the web last night sang the trailer's praises, with some agreeing that it was indeed better than the first. What do you think, Crushers? Sound off in our poll after the jump to tell us which "WFE" trailer you like the best!
We've already doled out accolades to the lovely ladies of Oscars 2011 (seriously, Mila, you're our new goddess of glamor), but now it's time we show a little love to the fine, fine men of Hollywood.
There were plenty of guys worth drooling over at last night's fete. We totally "liked" the men of "The Social Network," including Armie Hammer, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield, in their tuxes while "Chuck"'s Zachary Levi looked dashing in his black-tie get-up (sooo much better than a Buy More uniform!). Jake Gyllenhaal opted for clothes last night (what a shame!), looking as handsome as ever. And how could we forget Oscar host James Franco, who before donning a bright pink gown, was all sophisticated suave in his penguin suit.
Now, I would never want to prejudice the voting by revealing who my undying love goes to (hint: his name begins with "Armie" and ends with "Hubba Hubba"), so let me just add that you should continue reading after the jump to cast your ballot for Oscars' hunkiest man! (And if we left off your favorite looker, be sure to tell us in the comments!)
Justin Bieber wasn't the only star to chop his signature tresses over the long holiday weekend. Jennifer Aniston turned up at the "Just Go With It" photocall in Madrid today—alongside co-stars Adam Sandler and Brooklyn Decker—flaunting shorter (and lighter?) locks.
To any celeb stylewatcher, however, Jen's new 'do isn't that, well, new. The flirty cut is very reminiscent of the sleek bob she flaunted a decade ago during the latter seasons of NBC's hit "Friends." Though she caught a bit of flack at the time for chopping off "The Rachel," I was always a fan of Ms. Aniston with an above-the-shoulder 'do.
But what do you think, Crushers? Vote in our poll after the jump to weigh in on Jennifer's new cut!
On the heels of last night's excellent "Vampire Diaries" episode (didn't expect that final shower scene...) comes confirmation of a weeks-long casting rumor: Joseph Morgan will indeed take his place as the very baddest of the bad, head of the Originals, vampire Klaus!
TVLine initially broke the news in late January that Joseph was in final negotiations for the much-talked about role. Deadline confirmed the news today, adding that the Welsh actor beat out more than 100 actors for the villainous role. When can we expect Klaus to begin wreaking havoc in Mystic Falls? TVLine's Michael Ausiello spilled that Joseph will make his debut on the April 21 episode. Does that seem super far away to anyone else?
The 30-year-old is a relative unknown, having had small parts in "Alexander" and "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World." That being said, he's a pretty foxy lad and we're excited to see what he can do with the part. But what do you think, Crushers? Vote in our poll after the jump and let us know if Joseph Morgan fits the Klaus bill.
Blake Lively may have dashed the hopes of aspiring Manhattanites and fashionistas everywhere by killing rumors that she'd be stepping into a young Carrie Bradshaw's stilettos in an adaptation of "The Carrie Diaries," but Carrie herself is reminding fans that she is still ready and willing to work it out on the big screen.
"I would go back," Sarah Jessica Parker told the L.A. Times' 24 Frames, while filming her newest project "I Don't Know How She Does It"—another adaptation of a successful novel—in New York. "I think there's one more story to tell. I know there is," she said.
But whether she wants to step into Carrie's Manolos again is one thing, and whether we're willing to sit through another two hours of lavish spending and somewhat tired characters is another. Fact: The series itself is untouchable; it's the gold standard when it comes to stories of single friends and their attempts at love, but after a lukewarm response to "Sex and the City 2," is there much interest in seeing a third installment?
Emma Watson knows a thing or two about big screen adaptations of beloved books. So it should come with great joy to the fans of Stephen Chbosky's 1999 coming-of-age novel "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" that the "Harry Potter" star has officially signed on to play love interest Sam in the upcoming film.
Emma confirmed the news today from her Twitter page when she posted, "Hi all,just wanted to tell you that for once a story in the papers is true! I'm filming Perks of Being a Wallflower this summer.Can't wait!x"
We can't wait either! The film version of this YA classic (which is being released by Summit Entertainment, home of the "Twilight" movies) has been a long time coming, and Emma has been in talks to play Sam for awhile (Logan Lerman has been reported to take on the role of the protagonist "Charlie"). Plus, if anyone can handle "Wallflower"'s tricky subject matter like drugs, sexuality and suicide, it's the lovely, dignified Ms. Watson.
In a perfect world, Alex Pettyfer could be the swoonworthy leading man of our dreams in every YA novel film adaptation. But, alas, this is the real world where cloning is illegal and each day is only 24 hours long, which means some tough decisions have to be made. We've been pretty vocal about our desire, wish, dream, undying fantasy, etc. to see Alex wear the runes as hunky Shadowhunter Jace Wayland in the upcoming "Mortal Instruments" film "City of Bones," but that's not the only leading man part he has in his cross-hairs.
Alex told J-14 over the weekend that he's met with Lionsgate to discuss another upcoming YA adaptation: "The Hunger Games."
"I met with Lionsgate. I think Gary Ross is a great director," Alex said. "I have [read the books]. I'm a very big fan. I just hope they can conquer the movie."
With the rumors that Alex may ultimately sign on to yet another adaptation, "The Last Apprentice," there's a chance he won't be available for either film. But, if you could play casting director for a minute, which part would you want Alex for: "TMI"'s Jace or "Hunger Games"' Peeta (or maybe even Gale!)? Vote in our poll after the jump!
[Completely unrelated edit note: Isn't this pic of Alex just too cute?]
The one-sheet for Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon's April 22 release, "Water for Elephants," hit the interwebs yesterday, and I, for one, am in love. The blue and gold coloring is so warm and inviting; Reese looks absolutely stunning in her navy halter dress and pin-curled 'do; and, as is usually the case, Rob is sufficiently smoldery. Consider my ticket purchased, 20th Century Fox.
This new poster got me thinking about all the Robert one-sheets that have come before it. From "Twilight" to "Little Ashes," we've seen a lot of different looks from RPattz, but I'm just going to say it—this one is my favorite so far (with "New Moon" a close second).
What do you think, Crushers? Is "Water for Elephants" Rob's best movie poster yet? Take a look at his past one-sheets and vote for your favorite after the jump!
