It looks like Kristen Stewart’s extracurricular activities and Robert Pattinson’s string of talk show appearances have increased fans’ appetite for Twilight. Voters chose Breaking Dawn — Part 2 as this season’s most anticipated movie on Fandango’s annual fall film survey. And a whopping 51 percent of voters also dubbed the flick as the best date night movie.

In Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart famously transformed the demure, domestic heroine from the famed fairy tale into a scrappy, no-nonsense fighter willing to strap on a suit of armor to battle Charlize Theron’s evil queen. Just don’t call the character a warrior.
“I don’t suddenly turn into a warrior,” says Stewart in this exclusive look at one of the behind-the-scenes features on the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman Blu-ray (out this Tuesday, Sept. 11). “She hasn’t learned how to fight, and she doesn’t want to.”
That doesn’t mean Snow White avoids conflict. “I get the crap beat out of me,” says Stewart with a smile — and she’s got the bruises to prove it! Check out the clip below: READ FULL STORY
Stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser, Peter Facinelli, and producer Wyck Godfrey — basically everybody but Kristen Stewart, who was in Toronto pimping On the Road – gathered on the stage to present the trailer and thank the franchise’s fans for “their incredible enthusiasm from the beginning until now, the final chapter.”
Clocking in under a short 90 seconds, the new clip packs in two and half minutes worth of action. Bella gets ferocious against a big cat, the Volturi (including Dakota Fanning) get plenty of camera time, and little Renesmee shows up to complete the Cullen family portrait. And also: so much snow.
Grab a sweater and take a look at the chilly new Breaking Dawn clip below:
Toronto Film Fest: 'On the Road' cast, crew celebrate at after-party (sans Kristen Stewart), despite premiere delays
Oh the trials and tribulations of technology, not to mention film projectors.
The highly anticipated Toronto International Film Festival premiere Thursday of beat drama On the Road, starring Kristen Stewart and based on Jack Kerouac’s stream-of-consciousness road novel, started off to a rocky start, but bounced back, all cylinders running.
Director Walter Salles confirmed to EW.com at a late-night after-party for the film, at the new Toronto bar-restaurant Patria, that projector and other tech issues following Jason Reitman’s live-read of American Beauty at TIFF venue the Ryerson Theatre led to the premiere of On the Road, scheduled after at the same venue, being delayed an hour.
With roughly 400 films screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, which runs Thursday through Sept. 16, choosing which movies to keep an eye on can feel like wading into a large pool of marbles, with each one a slightly different color, shade, and texture. Documentaries? Check. Mega sci-fi tent pole pictures? Definitely. Animated family fare? Indeed. Foreign films from Japan to Argentina? Yep.
Beyond Oscar-buzz movies such as Ben Affleck’s political thriller Argo, Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor’s tsunami saga The Impossible, the John Hawkes and Helen Hunt polio survivor-meets-sex surrogate dramedy The Sessions, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s cult leader drama The Master, Emma Watson’s coming-of-age high school tale The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Marion Cotillard’s emotional whale trainer-in-wheelchair French-language drama Rust and Bone, there’s a spate of movies to watch out for.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt goes head-to-head with Bruce Willis in the opening night premiere of Looper, Kristen Stewart stars in beat flick On the Road, and Brian De Palma, six years after directing his last film, introduces his sex-oozing thriller Passion, with a blonde Rachel McAdams swapping smooches with Noomi Rapace.
Below, check out a preview of some of the films we’re excited to see at Toronto, from the big budget feature to indies:

Instantly entering the race for the best trailer of the year, the new, dialogue-free teaser for On the Road mixes an expertly edited collage of shots from the long-awaited adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s seminal Beat Generation novel with a propulsive jazzy score and a key excerpt from the novel itself spoken by Kerouac stand-in Sal Paradise (voiced here by actor Sam Riley). Also: Some excellent fontage. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
Kristen Stewart’s not the only would-be fairy tale heroine out there with a steely gaze and chutzpah to spare.
Stewart swept aside her pouty Twilight image with a hefty sword as a rebel in Snow White and the Huntsman, but there may be room for other actresses to leap into the franchise, even if Stewart does return for a Huntsman sequel.
Still, sweeping aside a Hollywood Reporter story claiming Stewart was being dropped from any sequels, Universal Co-Chairman Donna Langley said in a statement on Wednesday, “We are extremely proud of Snow White and the Huntsman and we’re currently exploring all options to continue the franchise. Any reports that Kristen Stewart has been dropped are false.”
Even with Stewart in the mix, a sequel could include other asskicking female roles in a Snow White-centric Huntsman follow-up or another potential spinoff revolving around costar Chris Hemsworth as the mega-blonde, strapping Huntsman. Maybe he’ll take on Sleeping Beauty next? Regardless, there are a number of young actresses just waiting to pick up the sword/bow-and-arrow/other archaic weapon of choice.
Here are a few we think could take a mighty swing: READ FULL STORY
There’s been a lot of confusion about the state — or existence — of a Snow White & the Huntsman sequel. Released this past June, the film, which starred Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth, grossed $389.2 million worldwide. But after incriminating pictures surfaced of Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders (Snow White‘s married director), one of the questions many have wondered is how a sequel with Stewart and Sanders could possibly be made.
Last night, the speculation hit a fever pitch when the Hollywood Reporter reported that Stewart has been dropped from any sequel plans (though neither Stewart nor Sanders ever committed to a sequel, which means they can’t actually be dropped from one), saying that Universal is exploring different spin-off options with hopes to start filming in July. Then Deadline reported that the studio is weighing whether they should proceed with a straight sequel or instead have a film that is focused more on the character of the Huntsman (Hemsworth). Meanwhile, Universal says only, “We are exploring options to continue the franchise and no decisions have been made.”
So what’s actually going on here? Nearest we can tell, not much of anything. At this point, Universal seems to be mulling over how to best extend their money-making franchise, and which direction makes the most sense for a sequel, or spin-off, should they opt to make one.
Update: Universal Co-Chairman Donna Langley has released a statement: “We are extremely proud of Snow White and the Huntsman and we’re currently exploring all options to continue the franchise. Any reports that Kristen Stewart has been dropped are false.”

The Kristen Stewart scandal: Why it hurts her image, and helps it
It certainly hasn’t been the easiest time for Kristen Stewart.
But when EW sat down with Stewart — along with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 co-stars Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson — at San Diego’s Comic-Con just a few weeks ago, the mood was very different. The actors’ four-year journey was approaching an end, and they were feeling reflective about the many ways the franchise has changed them. Stewart spoke about her ongoing struggle to carve out a public life that feels authentic. “I’ve never been able to fully form this thing, this persona, that some people are so f—ing good at. That’s an art. I know a lot of actors [who can do that] and you guys aren’t them,” she said, gesturing to Lautner and Pattinson.
“Did you just point to us?” Pattinson asked. READ FULL STORY
Casting Net: Kristen Stewart aiming to 'Lie Down in Darkness.' Plus: Diane Kruger boards Terrence Malick's Lincoln biopic
• Abraham Lincoln is totally blowing up, you guys. Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) has signed up for The Green Blade Rises, playing the 16th U.S. president’s influential stepmother Sarah, who married Lincoln’s father in 1819 after his biological mother Nancy died from an illness. The film, produced by auteur Terrence Malick and penned by first-time director A.J. Edwards (credited as an editor on Malick’s upcoming To the Wonder), spans three years in Lincoln’s childhood in rural southern Indiana. So the black-and-white film, which begins shooting this fall, won’t overlap with Steven Spielberg’s impending biopic Lincoln, which covers the man’s final four months; but it will overlap with a few of the events in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which had a much different suggestion for what killed Ma Lincoln. (Hint: It’s in the title.) (No, not hunters.) [Deadline]
Check out projects for MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY, WILL FERRELL, CHRIS PRATT, KYLE CHANDLER, MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD, BOB ODENKIRK, YASIIN BEY (A.K.A. MOS DEF), and OCTAVIA SPENCER below: READ FULL STORY
