If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Here's the first trailer of the movie starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen:
I'm gonna be honest, I've always loved the fairy tale of Snow White, but more for its dark origins than the fluffy disney version, and while this not the first retelling of the story from a more mature perspective, it is one of the first to have such a big budget.
Which makes you wonder why, for a movie titled "Snow white and The Huntsman", there's so little Snow White in the trailer, in fact they shift most of the focus to the villain and the sidekick. Could be that this is going to turn out into one of those movies where the villain and the sidekick are far more interesting than the main character? Or could be because Charlize Theron is an actual actress? Let's be honest, despite her fame, Kristen Stewart has yet to prove she's actually good at this whole acting gig, or at least capable to emote in front of the camera. Not that Chris Hemsworth has much range either, considering he seems to be rehashing his "I'm the god of thunder" mode.
To be fair though, the movie has interesting look, like a more gritty 80s fantasy vibe to it, which reminds me of something more akin to Neil Jordan or Terry Gilliam.
"Snow White and The Huntsman" will be released on 2012, and will be dueling against Tarsem Singh's own Snow White version "Mirror, Mirror" for the audience's attention. Let's see how this is going to turn out.
