Universal has released the first trailer for Rupert Sanders‘ Snow White and the Huntsman. Kristen Stewart plays Snow White in the fairy tale adaptation, where she trains in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to fight the evil queen (Charlize Theron). I’m with this trailer until it Theron says…”Mirror, mirror on the wall…,” and then I started to roll my eyes. But I’m trying to give it a chance because I like the visual style and I want to resist the urge to dismiss it just because it has “Snow White” in the title. Of course, both Snow White and the Huntsman and Tarsem Singh’s Mirror, Mirror have to contend with trying to take on a new version of Snow White when for the past seventy-five years we’ve really only known the one with the singing dwarves. But at least with Sanders’ Snow White, it looks like there’s an intriguing and exciting vision behind this new take. Your move, Singh.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 2, 2012.
