The June 1st film debut of this classic fairy tale gone awry has many fans anxious – including myself! “Snow White & the Huntsman” featuring Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, and Chris Hemsworth will pose a stark parallel to the March 30th Snow White inspired movie “Mirror Mirror” led by Julia Roberts and Lily Collins. While I am excited for both films, “Snow White & the Huntsman” looks riveting and intense, and holds hope that Stewart can display better acting skills than those shown in the “Twilight Saga.”
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is a story that has been manipulated and reinvented over the course of history. It tends to be quite an eye-opener for those familiar with the Brothers Grimm tale, considering its touchy subject matter (An evil Queen poisons a young beauty? Not quite a comforting bedtime story, despite the Disney film version.) “Snow White & the Huntsman” seems like it will show a deeper, darker version of this traditional tale.
Entertainment Weekly has posted a video compiling mini featurettes, filled with behind the scenes looks at the film as well as the magnificent costumes. Take a look by watching the video below!
