Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “I Felt Comfortable With Chris” Says Co-Star
Kristen Stewart is living an Aussie fairytale on the set of her new film, Snow White and the Huntsman. The 21-year-old, whose mother is an Australian, originally from Queensland, feels very at home with co-star Chris Hemsworth.
“I feel so incredibly comfortable around him. There is a very particular Aussie mentality and he has got it. He epitomises it,” Stewart told The Daily Telegraph.
“He’s really smart and he’s very impassioned, but he’s also really funny and light and kinda loud. His accent is funny. I can’t do it, I’m always trying to mimic him but I cannot do it!”
Snow White and the Huntsmana is a Lord of the Rings-style epic reimagining of the classic fairytale, in which Stewart’s Snow White is a warrior princess on a mission to take down the Evil Queen Ravena (Charlize Theron), with the help of Hemsworth’s Huntsman.
“I have an English accent in the film, that’s much easier for me for some reason. That Australian thing is tough,” Stewart said.
It is currently shooting in England and will be released in June 2012. (Source)

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Did Kristen Stewart Punch Chris In the Face?
The answer is: yes.
While promoting the newest Twilight movie on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Kristen Stewart was asked about her other upcoming film, Snow White and the Huntsman. Kristen went on to describe punching Chris Hemsworth in the face! (Poor Chris!) Take a look at what Kristen had to say:
“When they call action, it doesn’t matter how many times they’ve said watch this, be careful with this, don’t hit him in the face…”
Kristen grew animated in describing the accident, which was supposed to be a fake punch but ended up being anything but.
“It made such a sound. It spun him right around I was supposed to miss him by ‘this much’ it knocked him right out of his close up,” Kristen tells Jay. “I was down like this and he was over me ‘huntsmanning’ out and just really good contact. I could hear the camera guys go ‘whoa.’”
“I’m not proud though. Instantly tears sprung to my eyes. It will definitely be in the movie. He has a black eye and a big lump on his nose.”

Joss Whedon has assembled a world-class team of superheroes for The Avengers, but on the New Mexico set the writer-director was more in touch with his inner supervillain, according to Tom Hiddleston, who plays the evil Loki in the film.
“The brain power is astonishing and he’s always giggling about something,” the British actor said of Whedon. “He has this intermittently generous and supportive side as a director but I also think as an artist he has a really dark sense of humor. He kept telling me how much fun he had writing Loki. He steps inside the villains in a way that he doesn’t with the heroes.
“Joss gets really excited, I love hearing him giggle from behind the monitor,” Hiddleston said. “It’s almost like he’s hiding behind his own giggles. He’s lost a lot of weight during this film. There was one scene where Robert Downey Jr. has to fall to floor and we were trying to work out how to do the film and trying to work out how extreme it should be and Joss came over and said, ‘I think it should be like this,’ and he just hurled himself at the floor headfirst. I was like, ‘Buddy, are you OK? We could pad you up before you do that!’ But he went up in my estimation after that.”

One of several fairy tale films in the works, Snow White And The Huntsman is already busy shooting under the direction of Rupert Sanders. So we were surprised to see that a change has been made to one of the dwarf roles, with Johnny Harris taking over as Nero for Stephen Graham.
Harris, currently receiving plenty of praise for his work on supernatural drama The Fades, is stepping into the part according to The Independent (via The Playlist). Graham sadly had to back out due to a schedule clash with miniseries Parade’s End.
The main Snow White cast already includes Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin and Charlize Theron as the heroine, the huntsman, the prince and the evil queen respectively.
As for the new dwarf arrival, he’s joining Ian McShane (Caesar), Nick Frost (Tiberius), Bob Hoskins (Constantine), Toby Jones (Claudius), Eddie Marsan (Hadrian) and Ray Winstone (Trajan). Harris will also be seen in Welcome To The Punch opposite James McAvoy and Mark Strong next year.

Snow White and the Huntsman star Kristen Stewart was asked briefly about her opinions about her male co-stars, Taylor Lautner, Chris Hemsworth, and Garret Hedlund when speaking to Glamour UK. Take a look below at what she had to say:
“There’s something a little vain about working out every single day. Whereas, they’re the greatest guys and all kind of goofy. That’s why it’s so funny.”
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “The Avengers” Was Not Shot On An iPhone
Last week, MovieWeb.com reported The Avengers cinematographer Seamus McGarvey used an iPhone to shoot certain scenes in the big-budget superhero tale. It seems the director of photography was misquoted, and clarified what he meant in a recent interview. Take a look at what he had to say below.
“I was talking about how up and coming film makers have access to a whole range of new technologies which expand our options as filmmakers. I mentioned that the iPhone and the Canon 5d Mk2 were devices currently used on many Hollywood productions. I used the Canon on some shots on Marvel’s The Avengers movie. Unfortunately, this was edited to read that I shot some of the film with the iPhone. This is not true.”
Walt Disney Pictures, which is distributing The Avengers, also confirmed that no shots were filmed using an iPhone on the superhero ensemble. The outlet which originally ran the Seamus McGarvey interview, Irish Film and Television Network, did not respond to the allegations of misquoting, but they did remove The Avengers remark from their interview.

If you’ve seen Be Kind Rewind, you’ll be familiar with the term “Sweded”. It’s a hilariously poorly put together remake, which is EXACTLY what this fan made trailer for The Avengers is! “So this is basically Iron Man 3, right?” Take a look below:
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “The Avengers” Footage Shot With an iPhone?
The Avengers is currently in post-production, with a release date set for May 4, 2012. Even though this is a big-budget ensemble, some scenes were shot in an unconventional way, using an iPhone 4. Take a look at what director of photography Seamus McGarvey had to say about using the iPhone for several shots seen in The Avengers, some of which actually made it into the trailer.
“The beauty of photography or cinema is that you make every choice based on the content at hand. On The Avengers, I did a couple of shots on the iPhone and they are in the movie. In fact, they are in the trailer! I understand that sometimes there is no choice and you have to go for the cheapest option, but if you are limited for choice, you can still make poignant decisions that will effect the look of the film.”
The cinematographer didn’t reveal which shots were crafted using the smart phone, but it doesn’t seem like there is any difference in quality throughout the trailer.
