As their respective release dates loom closer, the battle between the two Snow White films is heating up. A new international trailer for Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror was recently released, and today Universal has released two new images from Rupert Sanders’ Snow White and the Huntsman. One of them gives us a peek at a burly Chris Hemsworth flanked by the eight dwarves. Yes, in Snow White and the Huntsman there are eight dwarves (something to do with a rights issue), but they look like a pretty formidable band of warriors here. Sanders assembled a pretty damn impressive roster of actors to play the dwarves, including Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, and Ian McShane.
Hit the jump to check out the images, which also include a new look at Charlize Theron as the evil Queen. I continue to be impressed by what I see from Huntsman, and I’m sincerely hoping that the full film delivers a grand, epic adventure. Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 1st.

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.
