Rupert Sanders’ “Snow White and the Huntsman” is the “other” Snow White movie. You know, the one that actually sounds and looks interesting and not just some silly colorful kids movie like Tarsem Singh’s “Mirror Mirror”. Yeah, that one. Anyways, take a gander at the first trailer for the film, featuring Kristen Stewart shaking off her Bella damsel in distress roots for something a little more proactive in terms of kicking ass. Have to admit, I didn’t think Stewart would be all that convincing in an action role, but she’s not too bad. And oh yeah, Chris Hemsworth wielding that big ol ax is pretty convincing, too. But then again, I guess he has experience wielding big objects. I can also see why Charlize Theron would want to play the Queen. It’s a way juicier role than Snow White by at least 500 folds or thereabouts.
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
Go into battle with Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Ray Winstone, Dave Legeno, Edgar Wright, Lily Cole, Stephen Graham, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan next year, June 1, 2012.
