We just keep on rounding up the clips and behind-the-scenes videos for the biggest movies coming in 2012 – and today we have a new clip of Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth as the titular characters of Snow White and the Huntsman. We also have another clip of David Hasselhoff in the B-movie horror sequel Piranha 3DD; the first gangster-centric clip from the crime drama Killing Them Softly, starring Brad Pitt and Ray Liotta; finally, we have yet another behind-the-scenes look at Men in Black III.
Snow White and the Huntsman
What more to say about Snow White and the Huntsman at this point? It looks like an epic piece of summer blockbuster entertainment, it’s an intriguing spin on an old tale, and it has a cast consisting of the hottest young actors around today (Avengers star Chris Hemsworth and Twilight star Kristen Stewart), alongside veteran actors like Charlize Theron, Toby Jones, Ian McShane and Ray Winstone. What’s not to like? (Insert obligatory Kristen Stewart insult.)
In today’s clip, we see evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) assigning the Huntsman (Hemsworth) with his task: hunting down Snow White (Stewart):
Snow White and the Huntsman will be in theaters on June 1, 2012.
Again – what more to say? Piranha 3DD will lean heavily on the “guilt” end of the term “guilty pleasure movie.” If you enjoyed the first film for what it was (gross B-movie absurdity) then this sequel will deliver even more of a (wait for it)… bite.
Today’s scene once again features International Man of Mystery David Hasselhoff – this time in a hilarious send-up of his former Baywatch glory days, which is still more honorable than the hotel room threesome where we found him in the last Piranha 2 clip:
Piranha 3DD is in theaters on June 1, 2012
Killing Them Softly
As one of those cinephiles who was a big fan of director Andrew Dominik’s The Assassination of Jesse James, I’ve been excited for his second collaboration with Brad Pitt: the adaptation of Goerge V. Higgins’ crime novel, now titled Killing Them Softly. With a cast that includes Pitt alongside mobster movie/TV show veterans like Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) and Vincent Curatola (also The Sopranos), big things are expected from this film.
In this first clip, we see Ray Liotta’s character having an unpleasant visit from two enforcer types, played by “Slaine” (The Town) and Sam Shepard (Assassination of Jesse James):
Killing Them Softly will be in theaters on September 21, 2012.
Men in Black III
The promotion campaign continues for Men in Black III, which, in my personal opinion, has more and more earmarks of a disappointing threequel, the more I see of it. From the production and script issues we’ve reported on all along, to the lackluster scenes from the film that have been posted online – I’m just not sure Will Smith and Co. have done something good here. Except Josh Brolin’s Tommy Lee Jones impression, that is.
Today’s featurette attempts to convey the “emotional core” of the film, which has to do with the lack of bromance between J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones / Josh Brolin):
Men in Black III will be in 3D theaters on May 25, 2012.
