Snow White & the Huntsman; New Bourne Legacy Trailer, Prometheus, House At the End Of the Street & Magic Mike

Snow White and the Huntsman... it's not as spectacular spectacular as I was hoping; the primary problem is with the script, there isn't enough dialogue, and in some places, what dialogue there is, should have happened five minutes ago. There are many things about the script I really really like, and that's what my post will be about! Visual effects were fantastic, amazing performances by Ms. Theron and Mr. Hemsworth (who also doesn't have enough dialogue, but what he has he makes count) and Kristen Stewart's bad reputation for acting didn't really follow her to this film, she did much better than I imagined she would, but this is the first time I have seen her perform. Again, there was a lack of dialogue that made it difficult for director Rupert Sanders to really develop the characters, but everyone did a good job, so I would give it a solid "B." If you are going to the movies this weekend, and you have seen The Avengers and Battleship, go ahead and see it, but don't feel that you need to rush out to catch it, it will play well for a rental.
In the meantime, the exciting, newest trailer for Jeremy Renner's The Bourne Legacy has been released, just keep watching it, there is a lot of repeat material in the beginning, but then it gets better:
And it's raining Channing Tatum in the newest Magic Mike trailer you can view here (I couldn't find a version I could download, sorry). Also, a very interesting new House At the End Of the Street trailer:
While I am not particularly looking forward to Prometheus, here is the newest trailer for the film's release next week:
And due out at Christmas (it will be competing with The Great Gatsby) will be Les Miserables:
The new sci-fi film Looper starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt has released this new poster (below). I am working on the Snow White and the Huntsman post, hope to get it up tonight!
