Charlize Theron Secures Equal Pay to Chris Hemsworth on The Huntsman After Sony Pay Gap News

She is worthy.

Well at least something good came out of the Sony hack—aside from some pretty hilarious PowerPoint presentations, that is. Like the rest of the world, Charlize Theron heard that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams got paid less than their male counterparts for American Hustle. Unlike the rest of us, she was reportedly in a position to do something about it.

Snow White and the Huntsman Sequel Is Actually a Prequel, Will Focus on the Huntsman and Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen

Not sure if want.

We heard last month that Frank Darabont might be directing a Snow White-less follow-up to Snow White and the Huntsman, and lo and behold, Universal just confirmed it. But what's that? It's a prequel? And there'll be more of Charlize Theron's evil queen who, according to most people who saw Snow White, was its best part? I'm listening.

“Excuse Me, Princess“: The Princess Type, for Good or Ill, Part 1

Venture into the pretty pink minefield with us!

How do we create a complex woman character who can give girls a choice in who they identify with, but that Hollywood will still regularly produce? And how can we do it while encouraging the qualities of modern feminism, instead of diminishing them?

Frank Darabont In Talks To Direct Hemsworth-Focused Sequel To Snow White And The Huntsman

Snow White? More like no white, am I right, guys? Guys?

Walking Dead's Frank Darabont is reportedly in talks to direct a 2016 sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman for Universal Pictures and Roth Films. That title might need some amendments though--the second installment of the franchise is rumored to focus almost exclusively on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman character.

i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

In a discussion with The Daily Beast, celebrated feminist (or not; your mileage may vary) and god among superhero movie directors Joss Whedon was asked why he thinks there are so few female superheroes who have made the jump to film. I would like to cosign his entire response.

Is Catwoman A Hero? MTV Wants To Know.

We Can Be Heroes

To be fair, it seems MTV has already decided Catwoman is a hero, they're just looking for confirmation from you. But she does have competition. You can vote for who will go home with the Best Hero Award at the MTV Movie Awards here. We'd love to see Selina win because we know she's a good egg but looks like either Bilbo or Snow White already have it in the bag.

As Life of Pi Wins Best Visual Effects Oscar, The Effects Community Rallies in Protest

At last night's Oscars ceremony, Life of Pi took home "Best Visual Effects" and rightfully so, Rhythm & Hues, the company that did the visual effects on the film, did beautiful work that really created the world of the movie. The same can be said of Snow White & The Huntsman, another CGI-laden film Rhythm & Hues did the effects for. Together, those films grossed over a billion dollars. Meanwhile, Rhythm & Hues had to file for bankruptcy and close up shop, so the visual effects community came out to protest what they see as an imbalance at the Oscars last night. The ceremony itself only made things worse.

Snow White and the Huntsman Will Still Have Its Snow White

Supergirly

The speculation that the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman will be exclusively about the Huntsman has been laid to rest–Kristen Stewart has confirmed that she will be back for the sequel, though original director Rupert Sanders will not.

Kristen Stewart Reportedly Signed for Snow White Sequel, Rupert Sanders Off the Franchise

i'll just leave this here

Snow White and the Huntsman debuted top of the box office, eventually garnering nearly $400 million from its theatrical run, and while I didn't have a particularly high opinion of it, I was happy that yet another an action film with a female lead was getting its money's worth this summer. News of a sequel (disappointingly) featuring the movie's male lead followed quickly, as anyone might expect for a monetarily successful film. What most people probably didn't expect was the news that married director Rupert Sanders and Kristen Stewart were having an affair.

This Newspaper Editor’s Statement on Why He Doesn’t Like Female-Starring Movies Is Just… I… I Have No Words

If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

Movies with female leads might make a ton of money at the box office, and they might be a big enough deal that their posters and commercials are plastered everywhere, and they might star people whom everyone is talking about, but dammit, that doesn't mean you should review them in a newspaper! At least that's the view of the editor who tried to ban movie critic Michael Calleri from reviewing movies with female leads.

The Mary Sue’s Summer Movie Wrap-Up

Power Grid

With summer interns making their way back to the hallowed halls of education and Jill and I starting to realize just how close New York Comic Con is, we felt it was a good time to take a look back at the good, the bad, and the... wait, that came out this summer?

Double-Standard Central: Everyone Needs to Stop Freaking Out About This Kristen Stewart Thing

Oh Hollywood

I don’t really need to tell you what’s going on with Kristen Stewart right now. If you have an Internet connection, you know. She cheated on Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman. The scandal has given birth to a plethora of gossip rag covers, a few awkward TV interviews and speculation on how the final film in the Twilight franchise might be affected by the break-up of its stars. I don’t want to talk about any of those things. With everybody—from gossip hubs like Perez Hilton and TMZ to legitimate bastions of entertainment journalism like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter—keeping the public informed about the (possibly career-ruining, if reports can be believed) scandal, what gets me most curious about this whole thing is why people care so much.
