Universal has released a new trailer and five-minute preview for Snow White and the Huntsman. I can’t believe I’m excited for either of the two Snow White movies opening this year, but here we are. I’m digging what director Rupert Sanders has done with the visuals and the world he’s trying to create. Also, ten points for the Shatterbeast at the end of the trailer (not the official name, but it should be). The trailer gets the job done. As for the extended preview, it contain the first real look at the dwarves in action, so it’s worth your time. I like everything I’m seeing, and when Dave caught the film’s presentation at WonderCon this weekend, he said the movie looks liked an “action-packed, visual marvel that is positively brimming with emotion.” As someone who enjoys action-packed visual marvels that are positively brimming with emotion, this Snow White sounds like the one for me (Tarsem Singh‘s Mirror Mirror, by comparison, sounds like the movie for no one).
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and preview, and click here for Christina’s interview with Sanders. The film stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, and Charlize Theron. 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) 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) 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. SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN hits theaters June 1, 2012.
