I have to admit, there are so many damn Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Wizard of Oz adaptations in development in Hollywood right now that I have no idea which one is which. Apparently Snow White and the Huntsman is the second of two retellings of Snow White that will hit theatres next year, with the other being Tarsem’s Mirror Mirror. Considering that Tarsem’s Immortals is hitting theatres this weekend, you might assume that the trailer for Mirror Mirror would be the one getting released this week, but unfortunately, no, Hollywood has chosen to confuse us even more.
This particular film is directed by commercial director Rupert Sanders and stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as The Evil Queen. Chris Hemsworth (Thor) plays the huntsman who protects Snow White, while the seven dwarves are played by Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham, Ray Winstone, and Nick Frost. That’s a pretty killer line-up of dwarves! The trailer proclaims that this movie is from the producer of Alice in Wonderland and it definitely feels like it is taking the latter half of that film and making it a little more mature. The visuals look cool, but if you ask me, Kristen Stewart just isn’t right for the lead role. Snow White and the Huntsman hits theatres on June 1st, 2012; check out the first trailer after the jump.
