While we've seen paparazzi snaps on set of Ron Howard's Formula 1 racing drama "Rush" -- or rather, "epic action drama" if you go by the official synopsis -- the official website has unveiled the first official photos from the film. Written by Peter Morgan ("Hereafter," "The Queen"), "Rush" reteams the "Frost/Nixon" writing directing team for a re-creation of the merciless 1970s Formula 1 rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, played by "The Avengers" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" star Chris Hemsworth, and Daniel Brühl, known for his turn in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds."

The past couple of years have seen more than a few long-delayed films finally being released, including last year’s “The Tree of Life” and “Margaret” and this year’s “Cabin in the Woods.” And now we have the first footage from the remake of the '80s America-under-siege film, “Red Dawn,” albeit in butchered form from Entertainment Tonight.

With one long-shelved project hitting theaters earlier this year in "Cabin In The Woods," Chris Hemsworth hopes another movie bearing his name, which also has been delayed, will make a bit more of a splash than that excellent horror flick. "Red Dawn" -- yes, a remake of the jingoistic 1984 movie -- is headed to your multiplex this fall, and few new images have arrived.

Steven Spielberg is known for working efficiently, but every man has his limits. Originally slated to be relaesed next July, 20th Century Fox wisely realised that with the director busy on "Lincoln," there was no way that could happen and pushed the release date one more year. But make no mistake, following this habit of switching up awards bait with multiplex blockbusters, Spielberg is going to be smashing shit up for his next movie, and he now has his leading man.

Can Chris Hemsworth graduate from franchise star to leading man in dramatic fare? The question is wide open right now, but whether audiences warm to him without the hammer of Thor or riding shotgun with Kristen Stewart through fairy tales remains to be seen. His first test via the excellent meta-horror flick "The Cabin In The Woods" didn't really work, and he'll get another shot later this year when the "Red Dawn" remake finally hits theaters. But his first real test will be in Ron Howard's racing drama "Rush" and should that go well, this will likely follow.

Today marks the release of “Snow White and The Huntsman,” and for those on the Universal lot, the occasion is one filled with quiet anticipation as the audience numbers come trickling back. Only two weeks after “Battleship” fell alongside that cinematic punching bag “John Carter” as one of this year's box office failures, the studio is now looking at its Kristen Stewart vehicle in a new light, basically pulling an about-face after so confidently exploring a vast future for it in the past few weeks.

Review: 'Snow White & the Huntsman' Is A Beautiful Slog

2012 has already delivered one big-budget movie based on the classic Grimm Brothers' fairy tale "Snow White." Earlier this spring arrived Tarsem's fizzy, Bollywood-ish "Mirror Mirror," which saw Julia Roberts vamping it up as the evil queen, surrounded by the most cheesily phony-looking sets this side of a Hammer horror movie -- if the movie had been any lighter it would have blown off the screen. And this week lands another: "Snow White & the Huntsman," an oppressively grim (pun very much intended) take on the fairy tale that instead favors mood, menace, and a kind of earthy grittiness, over the airier "Mirror Mirror." The problem is, that for all its frequently jaw-dropping visual panache, in narrative terms it sputters and stalls, sagging under the weight of its visual opulence.

One of the big reasons that moviegoers -- all boosted by the film's killer trailers -- will be turning out in droves this weekend to see Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman" this Friday are the stars, with the picture stocked with of-the-moment hotness. Its three leads are "Twilight" franchise star Kristen Stewart as the fairest in the land, Snow White; Chris Hemsworth, currently smashing the box office records to smithereens as Thor in Joss Whedon's superhero free-for-all "The Avengers" as the titular huntsman; and Charlize Theron, as the vainglorious evil queen Ravenna (and she's appearing in Ridley Scott's sci-fi spectacle "Prometheus" opening next week).

Sure, I know we all wish that Ron Howard was making “The Dark Tower” right now, but hopefully he’ll still be able to get around to that sooner or later. Instead he’s making “Rush” – a biopic that’s starting to look very box-office friendly after the relative success of last year’s Formula One doc “Senna,” and the continual rise of one of its stars, Chris Hemsworth. Hemsworth will play James Hunt, whose rivalry with Daniel Bruhl’s Niki Lauda will be the driving force (badumtish) of Howard’s film.
