The Huntsman: Winter’s War – Film Review

hunts2

When I saw Snow White and the Huntsman I never once thought ‘I need a back story for this character’ or ‘He needs his own movie’ so The Huntsman: Winter’s War, both a prequel and sequel, felt unnecessary and the movie itself did nothing to change that, but I’m glad it gave me the opportunity to see Jessica Chastain kicking ass, Charlize Theron being bloody terrifying and some hilarious dwarves.

Top Films for April

apr1

It is the start of April so surprise surprise here is my U.K. preview for April! There are quite a few decent-looking movies coming out this month but I’ve managed to whittle it down to just the five best. I still think Criminal, Eye in the Sky and Miles Ahead look pretty decent, but in terms of excitement, the ones below are where it’s at.

Update on Kristen Stewart cheating saga

Well, a lot has gone on since I reported the news last night and to be honest, I still can’t believe it! I’m still shocked that Kristen Stewart issued a press statement admitting her “indiscretion”- I thought she would have denied everything publicly and dealt with it in private. Doing that statement obviously turned the allegations into a bigger deal and in turn, has opened her up for a ton of hell from the press and paparazzi. She was caught by a pap today looking a bit stressed out. No surprise there.

 

Since Kristen released her statement, more and more details have come up. Firstly, the affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, 41, is said to have happened AFTER filming had finished. The English director and the Twilight star, 22, apparently started their romance during their international press tour which ran through May and June. The pictures I posted yesterday (see the one below) were only taken last week which suggest it has been going on for a month or two.

 

What makes matters worse is that Rupert’s wife, Liberty Ross, starred in Snow White as Kristen’s mother. Liberty, Rupert and Kristen were on the promotional tour together the whole time- so how did it start?! Rob also visited the set several times and Rupert was once quoted saying, “we all became very close friends”. That makes it even worse!

Rupert issued his own statement soon after Kristen’s, which read, “”I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”

Robert is said to have been blind-sided by the news, so perhaps he didn’t know before the statement was released. It would seem that Liberty did because she posted this picture onto her Twitter yesterday (picture courtesy of Perezhilton.com):

She also tweeted this cryptic message before deleting her account: “sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together”. The quote would suggest that she is planning to stick with Rupert OR that she wasn’t happy in her marriage and this is a good way out. It is probably the former, but only time will tell.

The awkward thing is that Snow White has already been giving the green light for a sequel. Sanders, who made his big screen directing debut on the movie, has already signed up to direct. Kristen will clearly play Snow White again- that will be a tough shoot, especially if one of them sticks with their respective partners.

To be honest, I wish for Rob’s sake that Kristen hadn’t published that statement because he is going to look like a fool now. While people will obviously side with him, he will get stick if he stays with her and he will be constantly questioned about it in future interviews. The Twilight promotional tour is going to be a nightmare even if they stay together because it will be marred by this news.

I feel that they will stay together and will probably lay low until the storm has calmed down a bit. It is a such a shame because they looked so happy together at Comic Con last week and then the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday. I feel incredibly sorry for Rob, Liberty and her children and I’m angry at Kristen and Rupert purely because of their stupidity. Most cheaters get caught but when you’re a famous person with paps on your tail, that’s just dumb. And then to announce your stupidity to the world just makes matters worse. I just hope Rob handles the shock of the news.

 

Kristen Stewart cheating on R-Patz?

I put a question mark in the title purely because I don’t buy the story. However, I wanted to share it all with you, so:

 

Today US Weekly broke a story that Kristen Stewart is cheating on Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, the director of Snow White and The Huntsman.

There are pictures but personally I believe they are out of context and I wouldn’t truly believe it until I saw some genuine lip-lock action! I reckon they are just good friends having a good squeeze. In the article, a source claims to have seen them passionately making out in an abandoned building. They also use the word affair, which seems a bit dramatic.

Stories like this annoy me because now people will believe that Kristen is a homewrecker, which I seriously doubt she is. Rupert is married with two children so this is even more of a big deal!

 

Big Pics: Tom Cruise, Kristen Stewart & X Factor

1. First of all, I couldn’t believe it when I saw these photo shoot images of Tom Cruise! Check out my favourite one below. Tom is posing as his character Stacee Jaxx from upcoming movie Rock Of Ages. His rockstar turn has surprised me because I was always under the impression he took himself seriously but obviously not! The images appeared in W magazine.

 

2. Another awesome photo shoot image but this time from Kristen Stewart. The actress appears in Elle magazine with a stylish man- but wait- it’s actually Kristen Stewart again! The actress poses as both the male and female in this photograph and doesn’t it look cool?

 

3. The official judging line-up was announced for the US X Factor last night at the Fox Upfronts in New York. Britney Spears and Demi Lovato will be joining returning judges LA Reid and Simon Cowell. The foursome posed together for the first time at the event.

 

4. Last night was the Snow White and the Huntsman world premiere in London’s Leicester Square. I attended the red carpet and took some personal pictures which you can see here. I couldn’t really get a full body shot of the main cast members unfortunately so here’s a picture to show you how Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron shaped up last night. Not a big fan of their dresses to be honest but they are definitely in fitting with the theme and tone of the movie. Kristen wore Marchesa and Charlize wore Christian Dior Couture.

 

Snow White & The Huntsman: World Premiere pictures

Tonight was the world premiere of Snow White & The Huntsman in London’s Leicester Square.

Many of the film’s stars graced the “enchanted forest” themed carpet, which was made of fake grass. Here are the best pics:

Chris Hemsworth 

Sam Claflin 

Nick Frost 

Nick and Chris were really friendly and happy to speak to the fans and sign autographs. Kristen was friendly and went through the motions but she seemed quite awkward. Charlize wasn’t particularly warm. She smiled and signed autographs but she went through really fast and didn’t speak much. I thought her dress was very odd and I didn’t like Kristen’s much either. Still I had a great evening, picked up a few autographs and spoke to Nick Frost!
