Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron in “Snow White” banner poster

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron hit the media circuit to promote “Twilight,” “The Avengers” and “Young Adult,” respectively, we’re looking ahead to next summer, when the three talents will unite to put a fresh spin on the Snow White fairy tale.

Rupert Sanders’ “Snow White and the Huntsman” will introduce a little more action than expected into the classic story, with Stewart playing a sword-wielding heroine who faces off against a wicked queen (Theron).

The seven dwarves, also, are made up of some of the toughest, most creative character actors of our time, from Ian McShane and Ray Winstone and Bob Hoskins to Eddie Marsan and Toby Jones. I’d buy a ticket just to see how they’ll be used in the film.

The above image is a new banner poster, which EW.com nails when it makes comparisons to Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and the realm of Middle-earth.

The film will be in theaters on June 1, 2012.
