The Snow White war is in full swing, with Universal and Relativity’s respective takes on the classic fairy tale currently in production barreling towards 2012 release dates, and today we’ve got set photos from the former. Some images have hit the web featuring Kristen Stewart in her nifty armor filming scenes for Snow White and the Huntsman. Stewart’s wardrobe looks identical to that which was unveiled with the first official images from the film, and is in keeping with the gritty, epic, and dark tone that director Rupert Sanders is striving for with his take on the material.
Hit the jump to see the images. The film also stars Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin, Noah Huntley, Nick Frost, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan and Steven Graham. Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 1st, 2012.
Here’s the official synopsis for Snow White and the Huntsman:
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.
