If you weren’t excited already about “Snow White and the Huntsman,” you now have a reason to be. The first trailer for the Kristen Stewart adventure film (which hits theaters on June 1, 2012) hit the internet today — and it is pretty incredible.
Rather than actually focus on the “Twilight” star, though, Charlize Theron gets most of the airtime as the evil queen — and she is wonderfully evil in the role as she talks about eating hearts. Also entertaining? The physical presence of the mirror, Chris Hemsworth serving as the perfect huntsman, and the gigantic battle scenes.
What really seems to make this movie work is that director Rupert Sanders has completely twisted what we know about Snow White upside down, while at the same time captured enough of its essence so that it is familiar.
Just let it be known that this is not a movie for the kiddies — “Snow White” is growing up. The trailer is being removed left and right across the internet — so we recommend going over to iTunes to actually watch it for the time being.
