'Deathly Hallows 2' Best Trailer + Kristen Stewart & Chris Hemsworth Franchise?

I don't believe you have to be a Harry Potter fan to marvel at this Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 trailer – with French subtitles. Sure, the fact that the Harry Potter movies are coming to end adds poignancy to the proceedings, but Warner Bros.' marketing department has done a great job with this Harry Potter trailer, conveying the message that this last installment in the series is a unique cinematic event.

Directed by David Yates, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, and Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort.

Also in the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 cast: Gary Oldman, Helena Bonham Carter, Jason Isaacs, Emma Thompson, Tom Felton, Michael Gambon, John Hurt, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane, Kelly Macdonald, Ciaran Hinds, David Thewlis.

Plus Timothy Spall, Miranda Richardson, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Warwick Davis, and Miriam Margolyes.

The final Harry Potter movie opens July 15.

The eighth and last Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has received a rave review from The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw.

“It all ends,” says the poster slogan. A potentially grim statement of the obvious, of course, yet the Potter saga could hardly have ended on a better note. With one miraculous flourish of its wand, the franchise has restored the essential magic to the Potter legend - which had been starting to sag and drift in recent movies - zapping us all with a cracking final chapter, which looks far superior to CS Lewiss' The Last Battle or JRR Tolkien's The Return of the King. It's dramatically satisfying, spectacular and terrifically exciting, easily justifying the decision to split the last book into two.

Directed by David Yates, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 stars Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, and Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort. The very last Harry Potter movie opens July 15.

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' Final Trailer

Starring Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, and Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort, David Yates' Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is the final installment in the Harry Potter film franchise – and the first in 3D. The video above is the last one to come out before Deathly Hallows: Part 2 opens on July 15.

Also in the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 cast: Gary Oldman, Helena Bonham Carter, Jason Isaacs, Emma Thompson, Tom Felton, Michael Gambon, John Hurt, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane, Kelly Macdonald, Ciaran Hinds, David Thewlis, Timothy Spall, Miranda Richardson, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Warwick Davis, and Miriam Margolyes.

According to the Warner Bros. press release, “in the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.”

Kristen Stewart & Chris Hemsworth New Franchise?

Like The Lord of the Rings and, ahem, Transformers (for the time being), Snow White and the Huntsman may become the first movie of a trilogy according to Alice in Wonderland producer Joe Roth. Perhaps as befits a storyline featuring three characters/stars: Kristen Stewart (Snow White), Chris Hemsworth (the Huntsman), and Charlize Theron (the Evil Queen).

Roth told Entertainment Weekly that in Snow White and the Huntsman the “story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters.” Those questions remain unspecified, though Roth has provided a few more details about the film: bounty-hunter Huntsman pursues innocent Snow White after she escapes from prison. The Evil Queen demands the Huntsman bring her Snow White's heart, but instead the Huntsman befriends the fugitive and teaches her to defend herself. (July 2014 update: Snow White and Kristen Stewart Out of 'The Huntsman.')

“She starts out not a damsel in distress,” Roth says about Kristen Stewart's Snow White, “but innocent, and after 11 years of imprisonment by the Evil Queen, she escapes and learns the ways of a warrior in the woods.” In other words, Kristen Stewart may have missed out on the chance to kick some ass in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but will be doing just that as … Snow White.

Also curious is the fact that if Roth's plan pans out, 20-year-old Stewart will shortly become a part of the second franchise of her career. In case you've forgotten, Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 – the fourth installment in the Twilight Saga saga co-starring Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner – opens later this year.

Chris Hemsworth is another Snow White and the Huntsman actor with another franchise in the works: Paramount has already announced plans for Thor 2.

Directed by Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Huntsman also features Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Sam Claflin and Ian McShane, Academy Award nominee Bob Hoskins, plus Eddie Izzard, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Stephen Graham, Eddie Marsan, Sam Spruell, and Lily Cole.

Lily Cole, I should add, is not to be confused with Lily Collins, Snow White in the other Snow White project, which is already filming, and co-stars Julia Roberts (Evil Queen) and Armie Hammer (Prince Charming). Both Snow Whites are scheduled to open a couple of months apart in 2012.

'Transformers 3' Review: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley No Megan Fox

Total Film has reviewed Michael Bay's latest opus, potential Academy Award Best Picture nominee Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Well, why not? Stranger things have happened.

Below are a few snippets from Neil Smith's review. Transformers 3 opens in the US on June 28.

Transformers 3 … might struggle to equal the sheer exhilaration of Bay's 2007 trilogy-starter, but it's a whole lot more coherent and fulfilling than Revenge Of The Fallen.

Admittedly, it takes a while for the pieces to fall into place and for characters (flesh and metal) to reveal their true colours. But once they do, the stage is set for a final hour of über-destructive robot wars in the streets and skies of Chicago

Now for the bad news. British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is awful - awful! - as LaBeouf's new love interest, sucking the life out of every scene she appears in like some pneumatic Dyson sexbot.

Introduced with a leering pan up her Victoria's Secret pins, she achieves the unlikely feat of making Megan Fox look like a proper actress, particularly at moments where she is required to be in peril.

Huntington-Whiteley is so terrible, in fact, she makes her co-stars bad too. LaBeouf, for one, has rarely looked so sweatily desperate than in scenes where he is obliged to simulate ardour.

Stephenie Meyer 'The Host' Movie Release Date

The film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's sci-fi novel The Host will be distributed by Open Road Films, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, and starring Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan, The Host is slated to open on March 29, 2013. Niccol, probably best known for Gattaca, will start shooting the film in Louisiana and New Mexico in February 2012.

Studios have been looking for another big-time franchise to replace the Harry Potter and Stephenie Meyer's own Twilight Saga franchises. The former will come to a close this year; the latter ends in summer 2012.

In The Host – which is not a book series – an alien race take over the bodies and minds of humans. Inevitably, one particular human refuses to let herself become “possessed.” Invader and invaded then become unlikely allies.

Among Saoirse Ronan's best-known movies are Atonement, The Lovely Bones, Hanna, and City of Ember.

Murdoch's Hackergate Circus

Where was the News of the World when you most needed it? During Britain's political circus known as hackergate, comedian Johnny Marbles apparently felt News Corp. ruler Rupert Murdoch, though a “greedy billionaire,” looked hungry and wanted to offer him a little pie.

However, Marbles' kindly act was cut short by The Woman in Grey (British spelling) in the Channel 4 News Twitpic posted above. I'm assuming she was starving – those hackergate hearings are to salivate over – and wanted the pie for herself. She must have reasoned: Murdoch, whose octopus-like company has more than enough dough to bribe police and buy political votes from all the whores in the British Parliament (and elsewhere), can certainly afford to buy his own pie.

Perhaps sensing that The Woman in Grey (TWiG) was going to run away with the pie without offering anyone a slice, The Woman in Pink (a.k.a. Wendi Deng Murdoch) literally threw herself between Murdoch, TWiG, and Marbles, apparently slapping the comedian before losing her balance. Pieless, she came crashing down on the floor. Gee whiz, that pie must have smelled awful good. [See Murdoch pie video below.]

Ironically, it turned out that Marbles was the one who got to taste most of his own pie, as clumsy Deng Murdoch allowed said pie to fall on the kind-hearted comedian. Poor Murdoch only got a few foamy white specks on his jacket. It's unclear whether he had the chance to lick them off.

Prior to the pie offering, Marbles, paraphrasing Sydney Carton's last words in A Tale of Two Cities, had tweeted: “It is a far better thing that I do now than I have ever done before #splat.”

For my part, I can't hardly wait for the inevitable movie version of The Murdoch Circus.

  1. emre

    Person who choosed Whiteley for the movie (Casting by
    Denise Chamian ) should give up that job and find another job. He ruined a million dollar movie.

    Megan Fox had emotional and natural acting, Whiteley has no acting but stayed there like a fashion model, made movie very unrealistic.

  2. Tim

    I agree, the girl was terrible and completely ruined the movie. Like, she was there only for the looks, there was no emotion involved with her acting.

  3. susie sullivan

    Between her lips looking like they were inside out because she had injections top and bottom, and her breast implants, plus her false eyelashes, I could not stop thinking of her when the other scenes were shown. Why in all that is holy, do women destroy there lips to look like a birth defect!!!!!!!!

  4. transformerfan

    I think Rosie is quite a stunner, yes I am sad that Megan is out, especially for her character as I think she and Sam deserved to be together after going thru all what they have in 2 earlier movies so its difficult to believe they just broke up like that, but to be fair Rosie ensures that the oomph factor that Megan had brought to the franchise continues unabated…LaBeauof is sure lucky! and yes Transformers 3 rocks!

  5. Leebog

    Seriously, this young woman looked fabulously sexy. Unfortunately for her, Megan Fox looked much better. My wife and I watched the 3D version this past weekend and both said the same thing. She was only in the movie to look good and every scene she was in just did not work. She was not a part of the films story except to goat Megatron and see really was not very good at that. Somehow they need to bring Megan back.

  6. Joy

    You know what, I completely agree. She was painfully emotionless and every scene she was in was brutal to watch. She had no role in the film other than looking good and whether she was hiding from Decepticons or about to be killed, you could tell she was focusing only on looking good. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I wish Megan Fox had kept her mouth shut and stuck it out to finish the trilogy.
    When Sam was determined to save Carly, I wondered “why would you want to save that bitch?” I didn't see any sort of connection between them; to me she was disposable.
    She's not even that pretty.

  7. Now that was harsh. Wow. This was her first acting role though and I plan on seeing the film at some point. Besides, she's beautiful.

    Example: http://film-book.com/rosie-huntington-whiteley-love-magazine-september-2010-cover-photo/

    Also keep in mind that acting in a film like this isn't really required.
