Mirror, mirror on the wall, which Snow White adaptation is the fairest of them all? The trailer has been released for Snow White and the Huntsman, one of two dueling 2012 films that are putting a twist on the classic fairytale (the other is Mirror Mirror, out March 16, which stars Julia Roberts and Lily Collins).
In Hunstman, Charlize Theron – who kind of has the market cornered on malicious characters – plays the Evil Queen to Kristen Stewart’s Snow White. Chris Hemsworth (Thor) plays the Huntsman who defies the Queen’s orders to cut out the girl’s heart and instead turns Snow into a gritty warrior.
While the film doesn’t hit theatres until June 1, from the trailer, Hunstman looks a bit like the love child of Twilight and Lord of the Rings. We like that it’s transformed Snow White from a gullible victim into a sword-wielding warrior princess. But will it be the more popular adaptation? The mirror’s still mum on that one. -Allison Friedman
