OMG!!!! When I heard Snow White was being transformed into a darker version of the fairy tale and that Kristen Stewart would play the lead (Ugh!), I didn’t have high hopes for Snow White and the Huntsman, but Charlize Theron steals the show as the Evil Queen in the new trailer and makes this a ‘must watch’ movie.
The Twilight Saga’s Kristen Stewart might play the lead role but you really can’t tell in the first trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman which was recently revealed on ComingSoon … and I don’t consider that a bad thing. Stewart’s Snow White is seen in various snippets throughout the trailer but the spotlight belongs to Charlize Theron, who tears up the scenery with her sexy but menacing portrayal of the Evil Queen. I had no doubt that Theron could handle the role but I wasn’t expecting such a bad-ass villain. She does such an awesome job that I almost want to root for the good guys to lose.
Fortunately, Chris Hemsworth is around to remind me that the Evil Queen is actually the bad guy and he does a good job as the Huntsman, especially when he confronts the Queen about his latest assignment. He might be a tough guy but there’s no doubt about who’s in charge.
The effects are jaw-droppingly awesome and I am absolutely thrilled with the spin they’ve put on the Queen’s magic mirror. No longer resigned to being stuck on the wall as boring piece of glass, this new mirror is freaky and creepy (and totally cool) at the same time.
Am I too old for fairy tales? Not when it’s a movie that looks like this.
Snow White and the Huntsman hits theaters on June 1, 2012.
