Rupert Sanders’ directorial debut Snow White and the Huntsman continues to look promising as Universal released three more stills to promote the film as a darker, grittier adaptation of the fairy tale. We are cautiously optimistic that Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and most particularly Charlize Theron will be able to make this a lot more badass and grown-up than you would expect from a traditional Snow White movie.
Adding more intrigue is the fact that the script was co-written by Evan Daugherty and Hossein Amini, who is behind the screenplay for Drive as well as a superb supporting cast that includes Nick Frost, Sam Claflin, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Lily Cole, and Bob Hoskins. In any case, below are three new stills, just released on the film’s Facebook page.
Snow White and the Huntsman will hit theaters on June 1.
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. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill 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.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
