Variety reports that Scott free Films released the first movie still of Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies) in the Drake Doremus film Equals.
Both Stewart and Hoult are seen in a close sensual position which appears to be heading towards a kiss. Will they or won't they?
Equals is "love story is set in the future where emotions have been eradicated, but a disease can cause them to return." The film also stars Guy Pearce (Prometheus) and Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook).
Both Stewart and Hoult spoke about having feelings at the film's press conference in August.
“I’m definitely not afraid of ‘feels.’ My life revolves around it actually,” “Finding the balance between the head and the heart is important but I’ve always been very driven by the gut. Every thought or articulated emotion starts in shapes and colors and putting your finger on that is cool, but it’s not necessary.”
Hoult said, “That obviously would be the easy way out [living in an emotionless world], but no, I like to feel everything, take the highs and the lows.”
Equals is set to be released in 2015.
A new trailer and movie stills were released for the Michael Mann thriller Blackhat starring Chris Hemsworth.

Check out the video and photos below.
Blackhat opens in theaters January 16, 2015.

Harris continued, "...and she was our leader."
Harris beamed further stating that Stewart was"a great actress...a movie star." He calls Stewart one of the "biggest movie stars of her generation" and a "huge ticket seller."

There were several dramatic television ads created for the SWATH debut which rival any of the film trailers.
The ads include plenty of action featuring Stewart as Snow White with voice overs from Charlize Theron and the late Bob Hoskins which will bring tears to your eyes listening to him say his most memorable lines from the film including, "She is the one."
Although Universal has determined not to pursue the Snow White storyline moving the story to pre-Snow White in its upcoming prequel 'The Huntsman', fans can still appreciate this story as it was and as it should be.

A new movie poster and stills have been released of Chris Hemsworth in his upcoming films.
In the poster released for the Ron Howard-directed 'Heart of the Sea', Hemsworth looks breathtakingly seaworthy in a hot sort of way. If Howard wants to appeal to women, he's won. But don't let the hot pictures fool you. These films do not look like love stories but appear to have violence and appeal to the male audience.
'Heart of the Sea' based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s book about the true events that inspired Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.” Hemsworth stars as the first mate of a crew that was stranded at sea for 90 days and resorted to cannibalism for survival after being stalked and attacked by a sperm whale, according to Indiewire.
'Blackhat' Director Michael Mann is well-known for his action films with lots of gunplay. Hemsworth is seen in action in both stills.
In 'Blackhat', Hemsworth plays a furloughed convict [black hacker of computers] who teams with Chinese and American partners to hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta," according to Indiewire.
The 'Blackhat' is set to open January 2015 and 'Heart of the Sea' hits theaters March 2015.

A miracle of high ambition and low budget, Gareth Edwards’ 2010 debut Monsters redefined what was possible for both British sci-fi and indie cinema. Taking his cue from the first film’s subtle layering of human drama over jaw-dropping visual effects, first-time feature director Tom Green has expanded Edwards’ universe to the Middle East where, seven years after the events that first brought an alien infestation of squid-like creatures to the Earth, there are now quarantined Infected Zones, just as there once were in Mexico. As wars continue to break out in the region, American forces, led by jaded veteran Noah (Johnny Harris), find themselves vulnerable on two fronts – fighting these extra-terrestrial invaders while defending themselves from local insurgents in whose land they are seen, ironically, to also be invaders. Mixing social comment with spectacle, Monsters: Dark Continent is a rare sequel that respects its predecessor’s belief in the right combination of realism and wonder. ~~ Damon Wise [BFI]
