Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron in first “Snow White” trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Mirror, mirror on the wall. What’s the coolest trailer you’ll see today? If you answered “Snow White and the Huntsman,” give yourself a bell.

The focus on this, the first clip of Rupert Sanders’ anticipated Snow White epic, lies on Charlize Theron’s wicked, beauty-engulfing queen. Which is fine by me. But it also sets the stage for what should be a mighty battle between the jealous despot and Snow White (Kristen Stewart), a warrior ready to defend her youthful vigor … to the death.

Here’s the trailer.

Nothing – and I do mean NOTHING – in that trailer reminds me of the classic Walt Disney cartoon. And I’m assuming that’s the point. Sanders’ spin on the fairy tale is dark, violent … like something out of Ridley Scott’s grizzled imagination.

“Thor” lead Chris Hemsworth, as you can see, co-stars as the “Huntsman” hired by Theron to track and kill Stewart’s Snow White. But it’s the dwarves I’m dying to see. Ian McShane? Toby Jones? Nick Frost? Ray Winstone?! Bob Hoskins?!?!

Sign me up, and stamp it with a #SWATH hashtag. “Snow White and the Huntsman” will be in theaters on June 1, 2012.
