From Deadline CinemaConReport Next up was extended footage from U’s June 1 release Snow White And The Huntsman. Exhibs seemed to like it, especially when stars Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, producer Joe Roth and first time feature director Rupert Sanders came out. Fogelson explained they and Roth were willing to take the huge risk on Sanders based of the pitch reel he created to get the job. Roth noted he just saw the finished film last Saturday. “I can’t imagine anyone over the age of 10 who won’t love it,” he said. Spoken like a true producer. Rocco told me last night she’s especially high on this one – despite the existence of that “other” Snow White film in the market. Theron said she went into the project telling the studio and Roth, “if you want me to do it we have to make it balls-to-the-wall”, to which Sanders cracked “I didn’t realize they would be my balls!”

Variety_JLD Universal ends CinemaCon with the most polished and entertaining slate presentation of all six studios, by far. Adam Fogelson is a natural. Stars onstage: K-Stew, Charlize, Travolta, Mila Kunis, Taylor Kitsch, Jeremy Renner, and hysterical Seth McFarlane. Slate looks winning.

Collider Universal presentation was the best yet. They world premiered footage from every movie they have through summer 2013!seriously cannot believe how much footage Universal world premiered at their CinemaCon panel.
