Of the two upcoming Snow White films, Snow White and the Huntsman certainly seems to have the epic factor going for it, which is excellent news in my books. The first trailer for the film landed back in November, and it was nothing short of immense.
The film marks what looks to be a brilliant directorial debut from Rupert Sanders, and will star Kristen Stewart as the eponymous Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman, and Charlize Theron as Queen Ravenna.
A brilliant new sneak peek has surfaced over at the film’s Facebook page, with thanks to ComicBookMovie for the tip-off, and it shows a few new snippets of footage along with some of the terrific scenes from the film we’ve already seen.
“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.”
This iteration of the classic fairytale looks to be a much darker version than the family film, Mirror Mirror, which should also be great, but is by its nature largely aimed at different audiences. And I just happen to fall into Snow White and the Huntsman’s audience that little bit more.
Everything that we’ve seen for the film so far (all of which you can catch up on right here) has been pitch perfect, and I can’t wait to see how it all turns out this summer. Snow White and the Huntsman will be with us on 1st June, which gives us four and a half months to wait in anticipation for its awesomeness. It’s going to be such a good kick-start to the summer. Until then, here’s the great new sneak peek for your viewing pleasure, and you can head on over to Facebook if you’d care to enjoy it in HD.
