That second Snow White movie is finally here!

"Snow White and the Huntsman" is a darker take on the classic than its Tarsem Singh-directed counterpart, "Mirror, Mirror." However, both films feature hunky blonde-haired, blue-eyed actors (i.e. Chris Hemsworth and Armie Hammer). And we can't deny the chills we get from seeing Charlize Theron as Queen Ravenna in the "Huntsman" promos.

So, if you'd like to compare the two flicks (or just see Kristen Stewart in a non-"Twilight" role), you can catch "Snow White and the Huntsman" in theaters on June 1.

"Thank you, people whose Facebook profile picture is them as a baby, for basically saying, 'Here's the last time I wasn't ugly.'"

If that made you laugh, you can thank Jimmy Fallon, as it's just one of the many hilarious subjects he shows gratitude for in his new book, "Thank You Notes 2," arriving May 22, 2012. Co-written with the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" scribes, the book plays off the popular "Thank You Notes" segment on the show, and is the follow-up to his first published collection of "Thank You Notes."

If you love the combination of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, then this weekend's release should already be on your radar: The two are together again with the new movie "Dark Shadows."

The man who originally portrayed Barnabas, Jonathan Frid, died in April, but he was able to contribute to the film. Catch his cameo when "Dark Shadows" opens Friday.

Having sports figures as hosts on "Saturday Night Live" is not out of the ordinary. But it seems to be practically a family tradition for the Mannings.

Super Bowl XLVI MVP and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will host the sketch comedy show with musical guest Rihanna on May 5, following his second Super Bowl victory this year. His older brother, Peyton Manning, hosted the show in 2007 after the Indianapolis Colts' win, and killed it with his United Way skit.

Can Eli deliver the laughs like his brother? Find out for yourself this Saturday on NBC. Here's what else you shouldn't miss this week:

Now, a fictionalized account of Poe's last days will be released on the big screen. In "The Raven," Poe (played by John Cusack) follows a serial killer whose murders are very similar to those described in his stories. The movie comes to theaters on April 27.
