Snow White and the Huntsman is a very promising fantasy adventure film with a fresh, more grittier ad darker take on the beloved children's classic, the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Slated for a June 2012 release, will Snow White and the Huntsman, another darker Hollywood take on an acclaimed fairy tale be a good one or not? Let's find out.

Snow White and the Huntsman

In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (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) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin 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.

Snow White and the Huntsman Trailer Review

There have been various film incarnations of the fairy tale of Snow White but that didn't stopped Hollywood from making another one. This time, a fresh new take on the story of the girl whose skin is as white as snow gets a fresh new darker take in the same sense as Alice in Wonderland (2010) and Red Riding Hood (2011). Catering more on the adult market such films have so much expectations and so much to loose. What does the trailer say about this darker film based on a fairy tale?

Right off the bat, let me say that this trailer looks promising. Who would have thought that "that" seemingly awkward female protagonist from that indescribable film (not in a good way) called Twilight, would actually be even considered as the fairest of them all. Well hopefully we don't get that awkward acting on this film. Glad it is not just her but the Mighty ehr... Huntsman is in it as well. So we know that the action part is already covered. And then we have Miss Charlize Theron! We know how wicked that witch is (well in the story), but this time Charlize gives her a whole lot more justice by making her as bad to the bones. We already know what will happen to this story but the journey going towards that finale is what picques people's curiosity. Besides the "Tron: Legacy"-ish type of sound playing on the background and that Kristen Stewart. I have nothing else to complain about Snow White and the Huntsman.
