Snow White and the Huntsman: First Look

Posted by Grey Saturday, November 12, 2011

With Brothers Grimm's well-known fairy tale of Snow White being the next hot property of Hollywood, we take a look at Universal Pictures' Snow White and the Huntsman with the release of the first trailer and some new promotional posters from the film.

In a familiarly uninspired turns of events, Brothers Grimm's tale of Snow White, arguably one of the most well-known fairy tale in the world, is now officially the next hot property of Hollywood with both Universal Pictures and Relativity Media gearing up with their respective revisionist take on the timeless fairy tale.

With Relativity Media's "Mirror Mirror", Tarsem Singh (the director who brought us The Cell, and the upcoming Immortals) cast Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, and Sean Bean as Snow White, The Evil Queen, Prince Andrew Alcott, and The King, respectively in what the director described as a light 'comedic adventure." The film is currently scheduled for a March 16th, 2012 release.

Meanwhile, Universal Pictures' Snow White and the Huntsman is arguably much more ambitious, with a grim and gritty take on the fairy tale that reportedly takes on a much epic scale the likes of Lord of the Rings. Directed by Rupert Sanders in his feature directorial debut, the film is reportedly the first in a planned trilogy. We already had a hint of the film's bold ambitions with the incredible cast rounding out the seven (or rather the eight) Dwarves: Ian McShane as Caesar, Eddie Izzard as Tiberius, Bob Hoskins as Constantine, Toby Jones as Claudius, Eddie Marsan as Hadrian, Stephen Graham as Nero, Ray Winstone as Trajan, and finally, Nick Frost as Gus, the eighth Dwarf. (Incidentally, for those taking notes, all seven dwarves are named after Roman Emperors or a Roman Dictator: Caesar, Tiberius, Constantine, Claudius, Hadrian, Nero and Trajan.)

Moving on to the main cast, Kristen Stewart will be portraying the eponymous character, Snow White, while Chris Hemsworth is cast as Eric, the Huntsman, the other eponymous character. In addition, Charlize Theron will be Ravenna, the Evil Queen while Sam Claflin is cast as Prince Charmant, who is most likely than not, an evil character here.

Focusing more on the Huntsman aspects of the fairy tale, the film is currently scheduled to be released on on June 1st next year, giving Tarsem Singh's "Mirror Mirror" the lead in case we are on the receiving end of a Snow White fatigue come 2012. That said, the promotional images that have been released thus far looked decidedly dark though we should never judge a film by its aesthetics. Or should we? Nevertheless, hit the jump to check out the newly-released first trailer, followed by the promotional posters.

And here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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.
