Weekend B.O. June 1-3 (The Mystery That Is Kristen Stewart)

Kristen Stewart is, for me, another one of those "just-how-exactly-did-she-become-a-movie-star?" movie stars. I mean really?  Her screen presence is nil; she has only one expression on her face (either on or off the screen) - that of someone who just got a tooth pulled; and her whole "I'm so uncomfortable this whole Hollywood thing. I wish I was somewhere else" B.S. bit gets on my last nerve.

Snow White

Kristen Stewart is, for me, another one of those "just-how-exactly-did-she-become-a-movie-star?" movie stars. I mean really?  Her screen presence is nil; she has only one expression on her face (either on or off the screen) - that of someone who just got a tooth pulled; and her whole "I'm so uncomfortable this whole Hollywood thing. I wish I was somewhere else" B.S. bit gets on my last nerve.

Take a look at the picture above. C'mon, do YOU buy her as this Amazon Joan of Arc warrior ready to do battle against the evil forces? I mean seriously? If it wasn't for those Twilight movies, would she have been anywhere?

Anyway, now that I got that off my chest, her new film Snow White and the Huntsman topped the B.O. weekend chart, beating MIB III. Though Prometheus beats Snow White by a huge margin in overseas markets.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel continues to be an art film hit; and in case you didnl' take notice, The Avengers is now the third biggest grossing film in history, after the James Cameron duo, Titanic (No. 2) and Avatar (No. 1)
