It's hard to know if Walter Salles's 'On the Road' will be a game changing film for its leads, or it will join the ranks of such dubiously famous films as Sam Raimi's 'The Gift' and 'Swordfish' for Kristen Stewart's topless scene. Sundance Selects and IFC films think they might have a winner on their hands, as they're going to release it December 21 in New York and Los Angeles, which means it's getting a Oscar qualifying run.
We're impressed with the level of ridiculous this week has to offer. James Franco is making a movie about Lindsay Lohan's life, Universal is or isn't or is lying about dumping Kristen Stewart from the 'Snow White and the Huntsman' sequel, a dude shot himself in the butt at the movies, and 'The Price is Right' wants to add male models to their showroom. Could this week be any more ridiculous? Wait, don't answer that.
So much has been written as of late about Kristen Stewart and her possible involvement with a ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ sequel that we’ve practically forgotten she still has one more chapter in ‘The Twilight Saga’ before she closes the book on that franchise for good.
In an effort to get ‘Breaking Dawn: Part 2’ back on everyone’s radar, Summit Entertainment has released pristine copies of the film’s promotional images (no pesky watermarks!), so Twi-hards can investigate every inch of the frame for clues. And it's not awkward at all, err, ummm...
When the announcement of another 'Snow White and the Huntsman' movie arose, fans wondered what direction Universal might take the fairy tale epic. Recently, it looked like our favorite 'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart was getting dropped from the film and Chris Hemsworth would be receiving all the attention for the next installment. But now, whether the original statement was falsely reported or Universal simply retracted what was stated initially, it looks like K-Stew is back in the game (or was never out of the game to begin with).
Earlier this year, Universal was so high on 'Snow White and the Huntsman' that they hired David Koepp to draft a sequel before the first film was even released. The film ended up doing $154 Million domestic and nearly $400 Million worldwide (on a $170 Million budget), so a sequel made sense. Then it came out that Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders had an affair. And now Koepp has left the sequel, Universal is saying that Stewart won't be back and they're talking about focusing on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman.
Everyone loves the first major interview following a public and embarrassing celebrity moment. Some people can laugh at the humor of the situation, as Fred Willard did on David Letterman following his recent public masturbation arrest, but will Robert Pattinson let his icy vampire exterior warm during his first major public appearance following Kristen Stewart's embarrassing affair? Who will be the one to crack RPattz on KStew?
It's usually better to come out of the Cannes film festival with raves, or hopefully awards, Walter Salles' 'On the Road' at least left Cannes with some heat - though part of that was due to Kristen Stewart's nude scene. There's no release date just yet, but there is a new international trailer.
