Kristen Stewart puts a new spin on the titular character, turning Snow White from a fragile princess into a fearless leader in the re-imagining of this classic tale. Charlize Theron stars as the evil Queen Ravenna, Snow's jealous stepmother who employs a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to track Snow down. Her goal? To eat the girl's beating heart and achieve everlasting youth. The action sequences are top-notch, and Theron shines (literally, thanks to makeup), but a little more romance would have been nice. Extras include "A New Legend Is Born" featurette and director commentary.
After decades on the best-seller list, advice book What to Expect When You're Expecting gets a movie adaptation, but this romantic comedy treads far from its source material. The film's ensemble cast includes Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Anna Kendrick, Elizabeth Banks, and Brooklyn Decker all as expectant mothers in different situations. The movie doesn't have a lot of surprises, but it's pretty heartwarming. Bonus features include two featurettes, deleted scenes, and a digital copy of the film.

Kristen Stewart may play a total badass in Snow White and the Huntsman, but today she's revealing the one stunt that scared the absolute crap out of her. Find out what it is and see her as she jets out of Australia on her latest press stop in PopSugar Rush!
Kristen Stewart wore Chaiken to link up with Chris Hemsworth for a scenic Snow White and the Huntsman photo shoot in Sydney yesterday. They struck a series of poses indoors, then Kristen nabbed a seat with a good view of the city's Opera House. Kristen premiered SWATH in Australia last night in a green, embroidered Balmain ensemble. She's Down Under with Chris on their latest promotional tour, but back in the US, Twilight fans are getting excited about one of her next pictures hitting the big screen. The new Breaking Dawn Part 2 trailer is out today, and the clip shows Kristen's Bella Swan after her vampire transformation is complete.
Kristen Stewart is out in Australia for the Sydney premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman and selected a figure-hugging, forest green two-piece ensemble from Balmain's Fall 2012 collection. She let the regal embroidery take center stage and chose not to wear the belt shown on the runway. She complemented her look with a tousled updo and crystal-encrusted Christian Louboutins. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear more about her look. On Allison McNamara: Honey Rose & K earrings, H&M jacket.
Snow White and the Huntsman has already hit theaters in the US, but lucky for us, Sydney just celebrated the movie's premiere with another stunning look from Kristen Stewart. For her solo red carpet appearance, Kristen made an exotic statement in a gorgeous forest green and gold embroidered look from Balmain's Fall collection (notice how the color perfectly matches her eyes?). No doubt, Kristen has come a long way since her shy red carpet appearances for Twilight; here, the actress exudes confidence in Balmain's formfitting two-piece ensemble finished off with gold, crystal-adorned Christian Louboutin pumps. Click the slideshow to see her jaw-dropping look, and if you've missed a moment of Charlize and Kristen's SWATH world tour premiere looks, it's all right here, too!
Kristen Stewart wore smokey eyes and Balmain today for the premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman in Sydney. She was joined on the carpet by her leading man Chris Hemsworth, as well as director Rupert Sanders. Kristen arrived Down Under on Sunday, and was seen yesterday meeting up with friends for lunch. Native Australian Chris arrived a few days early as well. There was even time for Chris Hemsworth to get shirtless for a pool day before his press duties commenced.
Today, Kristen had kind words for Chris and how much fun it was to work with him. She said, "He is literally one of the nicest guys I have ever met." Kristen was also asked about visiting with Australian relatives, as it's her mom Jules's native country. Kristen replied, "My relatives basically live in Vancouver now, which is very odd . . . I've only been here a few times as well, maybe two or three times not to work, and that is ridiculous. I would like to come back more." As she headed inside for the screening, Kristen, true to form, swapped her high heels for a pair of Converse sneakers.
