Get ready for a new twist to our loved fairy tale! Snow White And The Huntsman is an upcoming fantasy film which is a British/American collaboration of director Rupert Sanders and a noted writer Evan Daugherty. This new movie will star Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin. Snow White And The Huntsman revolves around the story of an alternative world where an evil queen is out to destroy Snow White. The twist is Snow White is not just a princess but a warrior who trained in the art of war with a huntsman and is about to defend her life as well as the kingdom. So what’s the early buzz about this new movie starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth? Let’s take a look at an article from Ben Child:
“An Early Look At Snow White And The Huntsman Starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth
Film-makers who begin their careers in commercial advertising do not always emerge as dead-eyed journeymen when they arrive in Hollywood. Ridley Scott conjured up Blade Runner and Alien from the ashes of some much-loved 1970s ads for Hovis bread, and I’m something of an apologist for Zack Snyder, at least when he’s in Watchmen mode and not hawking spectacularly ill-advised video game porn in the vein of last year’s Sucker Punch.
Rupert Sanders is the latest director to emerge from ad-land, and I can’t help feeling that the British film-maker’s forthcoming take on Snow White has retained a whiff of festive perfume commercial that you might think was a hangover from his old job. Perhaps it’s the presence of Charlize Theron as the evil Queen Ravenna, or, more likely, the pretentious, faux-edgy fantasy imagery – but I feel a desperate need to rush out and purchase a dozen bottles of Poison by Christian Dior every time I watch the trailer.
Three new featurettes have dropped this week ahead of Snow White and the Huntsman’s June release, and none of them do an awful lot to extinguish the suspicion that Sanders is keener on style than substance. In the first, Theron boasts of a “feast for the eyes”, while Kristen Stewart (Snow White) discusses “visuals that absolutely transport you somewhere else”. Chris Hemsworth (the Huntsman) helpfully offers that because Sanders has made oodles of adverts, he will be able to tell “a vivid story with such great imagery”, while something that looks like Castrol GTX (actually the famous mirror on the wall morphing into human form) flows ominously around the screen.
The second video centres on the story, which doesn’t seem to have been adapted too much from the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale. The evil queen is still out to murder poor Snow White for being hotter than her, but this time she has added superpowers such as the ability to transform into a flock of crows and drain the lifeblood from unfortunate servants, a bit like Ingrid Pitt in classic Hammer horror Countess Dracula mode. The censors might well have handed Snow White and the Huntsman an 18 certificate back in the early 1970s: it’s intriguing to see that a film about an evil murderess who wants to cut out the heart of her rival is these days being pitched at the pre-teen Twilight crew.”
