Trailer Watch: Snow White and the Huntsman

Well I’m a bit surprised. For the most part, I’ve written Kristen Stewart off. I had no desire to see the Twilight films and Adventureland was merely so-so. However, I can say for sure that I will be seeing her new film after this intriguing and well done debut trailer.

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 (Charlize Theron) 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) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin 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 and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.

While Rupert Sanders is untested in the feature market, he does have a knack for unique and beautiful commercials. The action here is well directed, and we’re seeing a new take on an old premise, which is nice. Not to mention that the way they’re handling the mirror is fantastic.

Snow White and the Huntsman opens on June 1, 2012.
