Twihards may be riled up over today’s new release, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, but most everyone else is more intrigued by another upcoming Kristen Stewart-starring project: Snow White and the Huntsman, a “swords, shields, & armor” variation on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale. SWATH has been earning lots of positive buzz, following the release of an official trailer.

A pair of Hunstman set videos have popped up online, one of which focuses on the highlight of the movie’s first theatrical preview: Oscar-winner Charlize Theron as the dazzling (and wicked) sorceress, Queen Ravenna.

While Stewart’s fair-skinned princess did actually appear in the Huntsman trailer (sans dialogue), her screen time was insubstantial compared to that of Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and particularly Theron as Ravenna. However, the actual Snow White movie (according to the first of these set videos) provides the Twilight leading lady the opportunity to show off her action chops – with tasks that include leading nearly 100 extras on horseback into battle, and even hand-to-hand combat with Hemsworth at some point.

Theron’s sinister royalty was the one who (as mentioned before) made the strongest impression in the initial Huntsman trailer. The second of these set clips offers a better look at her (literally) dangerous and threatening attire, which was designed by three time Oscar-winner Colleen Atwood, a frequent Tim Burton collaborator who served as the costume designer of Edward Scissorhands, Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Alice in Wonderland - among many other noteworthy titles.

Check out both those Snow White and the Huntsman set videos below:

Passing over the sycophantic attitude of the ET interviewer in the above videos, Huntsman does seem like it has the potential to be an engagingly action-packed variation on an age-old fantasy story. Director Ruper Sanders is best known for his video game commercial work (for titles like Halo 3 and Call of Duty) and appears to have infused this Snow White film with a similarly stylized aesthetic. The film may ultimately prove to be just a flashy-but-empty (and unintentionally silly) iteration of the famous fairy tale, but there’s good reason to hope otherwise.

Director Tarsem Singh’s take on the Snow White story, Mirror Mirror, will actually hit theaters a couple of months before Huntsman does – though, if the over-the-top comical trailer for that film is any indication, the two titles really do occupy completely different sides of the tonal scale. So there shouldn’t be too much overlap, as far as general interest in either flick goes.


Snow White and the Huntsman arrives in theaters around the U.S. on June 1st, 2012.

  1. For once I’ll be rooting for the villainess. Go Charlize!!!!

  2. Nope. Not going to click on them. “The Dark Knight Rises” has already been spoiled. I refuse to have this one spoiled as well. Nope.

  3. There was REALLY no other way to link those SR? the only thing I was able to do with click on the Twitter link which opened up the ET page. I then had to go to the movie section, find the video, click on it only to have ANOTHER page open so I could view it. Way too many hoops to jump through.

    All I can say is Stewart is a poor actor so why she would be worth 55 million really escapes me.

    • Regarding Steward, saw her in one of those making-of things (can’t remember which film it was about), and it was really uncanny. Whenever she was of camera she seemed almost like a real human, but whenever the directer shouted ‘action’ she turned into an emotionless robot.

  4. WOW I can’t wait to see this movie SW with KS! I am a big fan and think she puts alot of emotion in her movies; why people tend to write comments about an actor they hate, is something I will never understand. But the directors must see something in Kristen that many people do not see because they keep casting her in movies; this is one movie out of a series she is doing.

  5. Go KRISTEN!!! We Twihards and Robstens will support you all the way!!! Breaking Dawn raked the box office records at $139,500,000 domestically and $144,000,000 internationally because you played the role of Bella Swan!SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN will again brake all box office records because the fairest of them all… SNOW WHITE is KRISTEN STEWART!!! hahahaha!… eat your heart out critics!!!

    • Okay….
