The next 12 months are certainly the year of the fairytale, with so many film studio’s bringing out a film adaptation of a classic fairytale many taking a darker sometimes twisted route. Robert Sanders SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN surprised as all back in November at how superb, immense the first trailer was, probably helped more with the release of Tarsem Singh’s own version Mirror Mirror which is heading more traditional route which you could describe as poor or even pantomime. Via the film’s facebook page a new promo or extended tv spot was aired on American television’s top chef why? Charlize Theron was a guest on it and she is also the wicked Queen Ravenna.
The now promo does show a lot of the fantastic footage seen in the first trailer but we do see a little more new footage making this one of the summer films to check out. If your a Charlize Theron fan you maybe in for a difficult time when this one is released as it’s released in UK&Ireland the same day her other film and probably more anticipated one Ridley Scott’s Prometheus which may go against this when it’s released! Snow White And The Huntsman will be out June 1st with a fantastic cast behind it: Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworrh as The Huntsman, Sam Clafin as the prince, Ian McShane , Eddie Izzard with Nick Frost, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Johnny Harris, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan and Brian Gleeson all playing the dwarfs. So is it Snow White ala Lord of The Rings style?
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(r) winner Charlize Theron) 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) 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. The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
