Snow White and the Box Office Battle

Julia Roberts Kristen Stewart

It’s the kind of thing that happens when rights licensing gets out of hand. As we’ve explained, two different Snow White films will make their way to the big screen in 2012. Each flick is peppered with big names and some fresh faces, and each will present an original take on the age-old fairy tale.

But, there’s trouble, because each film wants to be the first one to come to theaters. Relativity Media’s Snow White was scheduled to release on June 29, so Universal’s Snow White and Huntsman moved its production schedule up 6 months to set a new release for June 1.

Relativity retaliated by moving its fairy tale flick up to March 16. And in the rush to get each movie to the box office, someone’s bound to foul up somewhere.

Star Wars Blu-ray

We know a ton of Star Wars fans have been waiting for confirmation of when the series would be available for purchase on Blu-ray, and we finally have a date that's set in stone. You'll be able to pick up Star Wars: The Complete Saga, Star Wars: Original Trilogy, and Star Wars: Prequel Trilogy on September 16, 2011. In an interesting move, this is a Friday. Movie releases tend to fall on Tuesdays, but we're guessing that there are people hardcore enough to camp out for this thing and take time off work to tear through it, so having the weekend to do so is an added bonus.

You can pre-order the Star Wars Blu-ray set from Amazon at a significant discount:

May the Force be with you.


James Bond Release Date Confirmed

Daniel Craig as James Bond

James Bond is to return to movie screens next year.

Daniel Craig will reprise his role as the suave British spy in the 23rd screen adventure in November 2012, after the film was finally given the go-ahead, nine months after it was originally shelved amid money problems for studio MGM.

Sam Mendes will direct the film, while legendary actress Dame Judi Dench is believed to be returning as M. Frost/Nixon actor Michael Sheen has reportedly been approached to play the villain while a Bond girl to play opposite heartthrob Craig is yet to be decided.

"I think I'm going to be needed in spring of 2011. That's a message I got," Judi previously said.

Actor Simon Russell Beale has been linked with a role after being watched twice by Bond producer Barbara Brocolli in his current West End play Deathtrap - and is also playing King Lear in 2012 under the direction of Sam Mendes. "Every actor wants to be in Bond and I'd love to be a baddie," he recently said.

The script, meanwhile, is being penned by regular contributors Neal Purvis and Robert Wade along with John Logan who worked on Hollywood hits Gladiator, The Aviator and The Last Samurai. Shooting will start later this year and its release will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first Bond film, Dr No.
