The first volley of the great Snow White War of 2012 got launched today as Snow White and the Huntsman got it’s trailer out first (the other Snow White movie is Tarsem Singh’s “Mirror, Mirror, in case you were wondering). Snow White and the Huntsman transforms the fairy tale into a gritty, Lord of the Rings style fantasy/action movie as the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron) learns that there is a girl who will be destined to be more beautiful than her and enlists a Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to hunt her down and kill her. Snow White (Kristen Stewart) though becomes or is already some sort of Joan of Arcesque warrior and epic battles ensue. The movie is directed by first time director Rupert Sanders and is being produced by a couple of the guys behind Alice in Wonderland. Some of it looks kind of cool but I despise Kristen Stewart (thankfully this trailer is more Hemsworth and Theron). Hopefully we’ll see a trailer for Mirror, Mirror in a month or two and be able to compare them but for now you can check out the trailer for SW&H below (The movie is out in June of next summer).
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
