It’s no surprise that Kristen Stewart’s Snow White in “Snow White and the Huntsman” is going to be a badass. It’s just a bit surprising to hear her tell just how badass the fairest of them all is going to be.
“I’m fighting evil—I’m fighting the most evil motherf–kers-and it’s fine that they’re being killed. It’s anguish. It’s literally f–king anguish. She takes absolutely no pleasure in ever hurting anything,” Stewart said in an interview with Box Office Magazine. “I’m exhausted right now and I was thinking, ’The fight stuff is coming up, maybe that won’t be so bad.’ And then I realized that they’re probably going to be my most emotional scenes because I’m killing people and I’m Snow White.”

“Tower Heist” Won’t Be On Demand Any Time Soon
Universal’s “Tower Heist” is definitely trying to keep ahead of the times. Unfortunately, it won’t be doing so on VOD before the film hits theaters. Deadline has learned that the studio had to halt that plan after theater owners backlashed the plan to allow Comcast digital subscribers in Portland and Atlanta to rent “Tower Heist” on demand three weeks before its theatrical release.
Bright Side Of The “Heist”
Despite the shelved VOD plan, Universal is going forward with a “Tower Heist” Facebook promotion campaign called “Heist It Back,” which is a virtual scavenger hunt that will allow fans to win up to one million Facebook credits. Over the course of the hunt, Facebook users can get their own piece of a fortune by hunting for “Heist” buttons hidden around Facebook. Fans are rewarded with Facebook Credits, through digital goods incentives provider Ifeelgoods, when they “Heist,” invite friends or share on Facebook. Find out more here.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that “Sea of Monsters,” the second installment in the “Percy Jackson” series, will open in theaters on March 26, 2013.

John Singleton Could Helm A Tupac Biopic
Since it looks like director Antoine Fuqua is aligning himself with other projects, Vulture has learned that John Singleton is looking to direct the project. Coincidentally, Singleton directed Tupac Shakur almost 20 years ago in “Poetic Justice.” Fuqua notably had difficulty casting the central character in the biopic, so it will be interesting to see who Singleton chooses.
