We may have already had one Snow White adpatation this year in the guise of Tarsem Singh’s Mirror, Mirror but we’re set for another one… and they couldn’t be any different. Whereas Mirror, Mirror filled the screen with sickly sweet visuals, Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth as the titualr characters, looks a lot darker. Set for release 1st June.
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 winner Charlize Theron) who is 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) who was 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
