‘Snow White and the Huntsman‘ is definitely proving that it stands far apart from the other Snow White movie ‘Mirror Mirror’ and box office shouldn’t be affected by it being the second one out of the gate.
There’s actually room at the theaters for two movies based on the same subject, but unlike many other films that follow the same lines, Rupert Sanders ‘Snow White and the Huntsman‘ differs drastically from the Relativity Media ‘Mirror Mirror‘ with Julia Roberts. The two films couldn’t be more different, and many people who wouldn’t normally go to see a Snow White movie will be heading to see Charlize Theron pull off a very nasty evil queen.
Along with the latest slew of new images, you can check out the new trailer for ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ below and a very sweet extended clip which really should win over anyone with doubts that this Snow White film will be…well what you would expect of a Snow White film. Tarsem Singh‘s ‘Mirror Mirror‘ seems like it should be a fun family friendly type film that should do well on blu-ray/dvd. Naturally, we’ll go to the press screening of it, but I’m just all out looking forward to the ‘Huntsman’ one though.
The visuals alone are quite stunning, and while not a big Kristen Stewart fan, she’s got enough supporting cast with Theron and Chris Hemsworth (plus those dwarves) to overlook her less than stellar acting ability. As you’ll see in the trailer and clip, it’s got that ‘Lord Of the Rings’ grandeur and feel, plus those battle scenes look pure kickass fun. ‘Huntsman’ also gives a positive message to girls that inner beauty (like Kristen Stewart) can easily outweigh what appears to be pure surface beauty (like Charlize Theron looking very hot dipped in either milk or some white chocolate). Outer beauty fades real quick as we’ll see in the film.
[callout title=Snow White and the Huntsman Movie Synopsis]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.

Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
