Hollywood TV Coverage
Better Quality Part 1
2:28 p.m. This is scheduled to start at 2:30 and "Battleship" is supposed to be first, followed by "Snow White." Plan accordingly... Plan what? I don't know...
2:33 p.m. It was a lie, apparently. We're actually starting with "Snow White and the Huntsman." Rupert Sanders, the film's director, may be the only person here for it.
2:34 p.m. "I think the most challenging thing was being true to the original material... and yet bringing it to a new, contemporary audience," Sanders says. He says that he wanted this to be a universal story, for young male viewers, not just for young female viewers.
2:34 p.m. Before beginning production, they shot a trailer on the Disney ranch just to show everybody what their vision was. They didn't have a horse. They only had one suit of armor. But it was enough to get the support of the studio.
2:36 p.m. Charlize Theron is back and... Kristen Stewart is here. Stewart was a total surprise. She wasn't in the program.
2:37 p.m. "I'm really really proud of this guy," Stewart says of Sanders. Of her character she says that it's rare that everything she wanted in the character is there. "Is there an Evil Queen Meter I don't know about?" Charlize says when asked how evil her queen is. "Who are we kidding? We're kids. We get to go play. We're not curing cancer," Theron says. She adds that everybody has a different name and a different image for her character. "Everybody has an idea of her and there's something kinda nice about f***ing with that idea," Theron says.
2:39 p.m. "I have, sadly, not the body of Chris Hemsworth, but I make up for it in other ways," Sanders says, when asked about the eponymous Huntsman. He praises Hemsworth's intuitive and emotionally grounded performance that goes beyond just the physical.
2:40 p.m. Ask about the draw of the character, Stewart says, "I hurt myself a lot. It was fun. That was one of the things that I was initially really attracted to. What drives her is just interesting. It's not cool for me to have inexplicable brawn and just shatter men in armor," She adds, "I got to jump off of cliffs and ride horses."
2:45 p.m. "Snow White and the Huntsman" continues to kick some "Mirror Mirror" butt when it comes to trailers. The new trailer features actually Kristen Stewart dialogue! It also features our first scenes with the dwarves, who are played by non-dwarves like Ian McShane. This movie really does look like it's gonna kick a bit of butt.
2:46 p.m. K-Stew fell off a horse when she was nine. She hurt herself and dislocated her elbow. She didn't want to do horse work again, but she decided she wanted to do this movie and she decided, "If I perish by horse, it's all good."
2:47 p.m. How does Charlize Theron play evil so well? "That's cuz I'm a bitch," Theron says. She calls this her Bitch Period, like Picasso's Blue Period.
2:47 p.m. "I think, essentially, we're pretty true to who she is, brass tacks core personality traits," Stewart says, though she wanted to make sure this was a character who had been thought about and not just a basic archetype.
2:48 p.m. "Hey now... I could have a full-on 'Twilight' conversation right now, but I'm not going to do that," Stewart says, protesting when it's suggested that she's playing a badass, rather than her typical damsel in distress. She liked the character because her badassery made sense and because the character is "brimming." "I can, in so many different parts of my life, relate and love that about her," Stewart says. "Kristen's very explosive in action. She sprints like a 100-meter sprinter... She keeps up with the men," the director says.
2:54 p.m. "Are you single?" Thereon asks a kid asking a question of Stewart, "I think you're adorable." "Everything I've done always feels really different," Stewart says. "That was a really extended period of my life and it was very much its own thing and I love that character and Snow White couldn't be more different," Stewart says of transitioning from "Twilight" to "Snow White."
2:52 p.m. Why did they go with regular-sized actors for dwarfs? Sanders says that he wanted to use dwarfs, but Tarsem took all of them for "Mirror Mirror." That's a joke. It turns out he had been developing a British gangster movie that fell through and he just wanted to use some of the same actors.
2:54 p.m. Sanders thinks the actors made the fairy tale characters feel real and grounded and relevant. "Without a good story, you're just making wallpaper. And I didn't want to make wallpaper."
2:55 p.m. "It's amazing that we get to do this. Does it look like we're having fun? We get to play. We get to put crowns on our heads and scream at people and play mean. IT's amazing. It's the greatest job ever," Theron tells another tiny child.
2:56 p.m. Sanders gave Stewart a book about Joan of Arc for research. She admits that she didn't read it...
Details of the Footage:
The footage begins with a battle that we've seen in the previous trailers.
2:46 Knights are riding on horseback, doing battle with an army that, when they're struck, shatter into tiny shards.
2:46 This appear to be the Queen's magical army. She's making her move across the land, conquering.
2:47 The queen talks to the mirror, who tells her another is now fairer than she and it will cause her power to wane.
2:47 A man is sent to steal Snow White's heart (literally), but she escapes into the Dark Forest.
2:48 The Huntsman is brought before the Queen. He's the only one who has been in the dark forest before, but he doesn't want to help catch Snow White.
2:48 We see the dark forest. It's filled with black smoke, tentacle trees, little dragons and bats.
2:49 The Huntsman finds Snow White, but helps her, traveling with her deeper into the forest to protect her.
2:49 We see some kind of a monster that looks like a bit like a minotaur. It attacks Snow White and the Huntsman.
2:50 Later, they've been caught in a trap and are dangling from a rope. The dwarfs approach.
2:50 When Snow White explains that she is the daughter of King Magnus, the dwarves agree to follow her lead.
2:51 The whole group heads to a better part of the forest. Everything that seemed ominous before is now positive. There are white horses (maybe llamas?), a giant turtle covered in moss and tiny forest sprites.
2:51 Later, Snow White realizes that she can see what the Queen sees and realizes that she can kill the Queen.
2:52 There are a lot of shots of the Queen aging.
And looks like Kristen is wearing Rob's shirt... again :) <3

Okay, finally back home and settled, so I can re-cap my WonderCon experience!
First, I want to say that I didn't go to Calif for WonderCon. My youngest sister is a sophmore in high school and for the past few years, her and I go to SoCal during her spring break & fall break to just hang out. Its a 5-6hr drive from Phoenix and I'm always down for roadtrips! Our trips are always very laid back, non-touristy trips where we just drive around and explore and find new shops and restaurants to enjoy and hang out at the beach. So I had this trip planned for months now and we were originally going to come home on Friday but when I found out about the swath panel at WC we decided to stay an extra day & get tix to go since we are already there and thought it would be a cool experience! My exact words were "watch, if we DON'T go then Kristen will show up unexpectedly and I'll kick myself and wallow in regrets!" Lol!
So we had an awesome time on our trip and checked out of our hotel at 11am and drove to Anaheim. Its about 45-50 miles from where we stay. Traffic was a bitch cuz it was pouring. And traffic was an extra bitch in Anaheim cuz of WonderCon on top of all the weekend Disneyland traffic. We finally parked & rushed to the convention center in the freezing rain and got our badges and made our way up to the 3rd floor where the panels were in the ballroom. We were met with a huge fucking line! There was probably about 400 people in front of us and it was 1:15 at this point. I was like I'm seriously going to just go and cry in the rain if we don't get in in time!
But we did! So yay! We got in a little before 2. The Abe Lincoln Vamp Hunter panel was just finishing up & we got to see the trailer. Then the Promethus panel started and when Charlize came out for it I was like holy shit! She is totally going to come out for swath too! And then I got that feeling that Kristen would be there too but didn't want to get my hopes up.
Charlize was beautiful & funny as always.
They took a break & the lights came up before the Universal time slot. People got up to leave or move around so we scored waaaay better seats. Much closer to the stage & right in front of one of the giant screens. Good stuff!
Then they announced the Universal films panels; swath & battleship. Swath got a much louder cheer & crowd response! :)
Ben Lyons came out and introduced Rupert Sanders (who is a cutie btw, plus I'm a sucker for accents lol) and he talked for a few and then they said special "guests" and I was like ooooh! Guests as in PLURAL! And that's when I knew Kristen was there. Ben announced Charlize and then Kristen and my sister and I got all crazy excited lol! Kristen got a huge cheer and she looked absolutely beautiful! Decked out in her man's shirt & her cool Balenciaga jacket. Charlize is just naturally more outgoing and loud and a "life of the party" type and I think that works well with Kristen's more introverted side. She definitely seems excited about swath and she just looked really happy overall. Her answers were great and her and Charlize sorta "aww'd" at the cute kids that asked questions and had a nice rapport. I loved her "perish by horse" comment and when she got defensive when that stupid girl tried to shit-talk Bella/Twi when she asked her question.
Rupert said he did a 5 min cut of the film to show us and it was amazing. I think I briefly entered fangirl heaven. Lol! It seriously looks soooooooo fucking awesome! And we got a lot of Snow White in the clip. Kristen nailed the english accent, its perfect! I imagine Rob is a little proud & smug that she nailed it so perfectly! It also made me realize that my fake english accent I do all the time is actually total shit. Haha!
My sister took like 50 pix, mostly of the screen I think. She emailed them to me but I haven't had a chance to look at them yet as we hit the road as soon as the swath panel ended.
When we were walking out, there was a black suv in the restricted vehicle area that was turning around to leave and the chick in the front seat had long brown hair & was wearing a black leather jacket and she was texting on her phone. We both thought it looked like Kristen but we didn't get a good look at her face, so I can't be sure.
One thing that really struck me, from the crowd response to Kristen, and to swath in general, is that she really is just a big fucking deal; yet she is so incredibly sweet and normal and humble. Its really amazing to see and it was a profound thing for me. I knew all this, but to see it in person was special.
As a big fan, it made me incredibly happy and proud.
I couldn't be more excited for swath and after today, I love Kristen even more. It was super cool of her to come out and do this, especially in bad traffic and cold rain and its not exactly close to home for her. She is absolutely amazing!
Deciding to extend our trip by a day and go to WonderCon was a great decision and I'm so happy we did it and I my face hurts from all the smiling I've done today! :)
PS: I took 3 really crappy vids on my phone that I won't even bother uploading since better quality vids of the full panel are up already. Also, there are now lots of good quality pix up but when I take a look at my sister's pix later tonight or tomorrow, I'll upload anything worthwhile!
