A full-length trailer for this year’s most-buzzed about retelling of the classic Snow White fairy tale - Snow White and the Huntsman, not this month’s Mirror Mirror (in case you were confused) – will be unveiled next week.

In the meantime, we can offer you three tantalizing new behind-the-scenes features which highlight the film’s textured Medieval sets, its evocative villain, Queen Ravenna (Oscar-winner Charlize Theron), and the majestic costumes designed by three-time Academy Award-winner Colleen Atwood (Edward Scissorhands, Chicago, Alice in Wonderland) – along with a trailer preview, as introduced by Snow White and the Huntsman co-star (and Avengers member Thor), Chris Hemsworth.

Snow White and the Huntsman is a swords and sorcery twist on the famous Brothers Grimm story, wherein the iconic princess (Kristen Stewart) must flee for her life after her wicked, magically-powered stepmother (Theron) seeks to literally consume Snow’s heart in order to achieve eternal beauty. Hemsworth plays a widowed huntsman who is recruited to track down and kill Snow White – but, instead, he helps train the young woman to lead the kingdom’s subjects – who remain loyal to Snow’s late father, King Magnus (Noah Huntley) – in a rebellion against the Queen and her powerful “Shadow Army.”

Check out all three of the aforementioned Snow White and the Huntsman featurettes (along with said trailer preview):





Public opinion on Snow White and the Huntsman has almost completely changed over the past year, thanks largely to a great teaser trailer that…er, teased a stylishly gritty and exciting new spin on an all-too-familiar story – along with behind-the-scenes footage (like that shown above) which paints the film as a genuinely dark fantasy adventure. That’s a far cry from those pesky early rumors, which suggested the movie would instead be a fairly romanticized, Twilight-style variation on the fable.

Huntsman helmer Rupert Sanders has never actually called the shots on a feature-length film before (he previously worked in the video game commercial industry), but he looks to start his moviemaking career off with a bang – in part thanks to an overall solid A-list cast (yes, including Stewart), a stellar production team, and what sounds like creative script work by Evan Daugherty, Evan Spiliotopoulos, and Hossein Amini (Drive).

Snow White and the Huntsman opens in theaters around the U.S. on June 1st, 2012. Be sure to check back next week for the full-length trailer.

  1. this actually looks pretty good, not gonna lie. still not totally on board with kristen stewart though. but chris and charlize i really like so they should make up for whatever annoyances are present in kristen

  2. I can’t wait for this…So far, it looks like it will be a great new take on an old tale.

  3. I’m one of those who completely ruled this out but has since changed their tune.
    Dear Lord, it’s going to be a very expensive summer at the cinema.

  4. Meh. The sets and costumes look beautiful and the acting looks decent (bar a few annoyances, like Theron’s over-enunciation and Stewart’s asthma attacks) but it’s all meaningless without a good script.

    I’m not going pay to squeeze into a theatre full of twihards for a predictible story. Hey, the money I save can go towards popcorn for when I see The Hobbit.

  5. ^guy who Wrote Drive wrote the script

  6. looks way better than mirror mirror. i don’t know why people down KS. i only saw the 1st twilight movie. meh. but other things i’ve seen her in, like the runaways, she was great in.

  7. why is it everytime we see kristen her mouth is hanging open? i just find it funny.

  8. Charlize theron will own this movie enough said. Kristen stewart farest of them all? Yeah right

  9. And why is it that people love to hate? It’s definitely not funny. It’s daunting to know that this culture just does not know the fine line between freedom of expression and the freedom to say things irresponsibly. Like every person has a right to say whatever they want and never have to be accountable for its consequences. Hence, bullying has become so widespread and is quickly becoming to be a huge problem in this society. It is especially rampant and easily accessed in comment pages like this where hating under the guise of the-right-to-an-opinion is tolerated. I don’t think people even realize the severity of this problem and the harm it cultivates.

    • What on earth are you talking about??? Bullying? Where the hell did you pull that from? Don’t you dare start telling others they do not have the right to speak unless you are prepared to be silenced also. Free speech is there to promote bad speech, fool. Who are these crazy people who spend every waking moment obsessed with bothering other people to make the world a ‘better’ place? More like controlling- which is abuse, you know.

  10. So Kristen Stewart is supposed to be more beautiful than Charlize Theron? *facepalm*
    Oh well. This film is looking really good. I am starting to be annoyed by the lame Mirror Mirror commercials that are always playing on TV. So please hurry up Snow White and the Huntsman! I need a relief!

    • “So Kristen Stewart is supposed to be more beautiful than Charlize Theron?”
      hell yes, she is. Kristen is fairer than her. you mad bro? oh..well then to each their own.

    • I feel exactly the same way.lol

      • That comment was in response to Roguedork19′s one btw.
