Kristen Stewart shows off her bruises from 'Snow White and the Huntsman' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

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

'Snow White' and a tale of confusion [Updated]

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.”
