Question by Vedokos Namhatus: Will Kristen Stewart outshine Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman?
I would just like to hear your opinions regarding the respective roles. I know the movie is not out as yet so its purely curiosity. I DO thing Kristen Stewart is very beautiful, I have watched a lot of her, But I am South African and Charlize is our home girl. So I am abit bias, coz I don’t think much actors could touch her. So please give me your opinions in the beauty department and their acting.

From the producer of Alice in Wonderland comes a new vision that turns a legendary tale into an action-adventure epic. The evil Queen Ravenna (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) will rule forever if she can take the life of Snow White (Kristen Stewart), so she dispatches the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to track her down. But the wicked ruler never imagined that the Huntsman would train the girl to become a brave warrior, skilled in the art of war. Filled with intense battles and spectacular visual effects, Snow White & the Huntsman is a thrilling experience that “shouldn’t be missed” – Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV.Definitely not your average retelling of the classic Snow White fairy tale, Snow White and the Huntsman is a dark, action-fantasy film that’s based more on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale than the well-known Disney version of the story. It features intriguing concepts, impressive special effects, and some disappointingly lackluster acting. The essence of the “Snow White” story is preserved in this recounting: the queen’s beautiful daughter Snow White, who is heir to the throne, is displaced and persecuted by an evil stepmother after her mother dies. Here, the evil stepmother Ravenna possesses a disturbing power to maintain her own perpetual youth by stealing youthfulness from the hearts of the young and beautiful, but her magic mirror warns that Snow White’s innocence and purity as she comes of age will destroy Ravenna’s chance at immortality. When Snow White escapes from the castle prison, Ravenna hires a downtrodden Huntsman to bring her back so that Ravenna can steal her youth and achieve personal immortality. But Snow White runs into a dark and sinister forest where mushrooms disperse hallucinogenic spores, trees come to life, flocks of bats spring from inanimate objects, and dwarves lurk in the shadows. The roles of the seven dwarves and the Huntsman in this version of the story prove to be quite different from the original, but what remain steadfast are Snow White’s inner strength and absolute goodness, and her stepmother’s innate evilness. This film is full of fascinating imagery that’s brought to life through powerful special effects, great costuming, and captivating cinematography–the scenes in the dark forest and the fairy-filled wilderness beyond are reason enough to see it. Unfortunately, the story moves a bit slowly and the acting by Kristen Stewart (Snow White) and Chris Hemsworth (Huntsman) is rather stoical and passionless and lacks chemistry, though Charlize Theron does stand out as a particularly disturbing Ravenna. –Tami Horiuchi

Now we’ll see who’s fairest of them all… in tropical Hawaii!
Following a larger-than-expected opening weekend that saw Snow White and the Huntsman bring in $ 56 million domestic–which isn’t entirely all that great for a film with a $ 170 million budget, but anyway–Universal is looking to move forward with their long-held plans to turn Snow White into the franchise character the Brothers Grimm always intended her to become. The prolific David Koepp has been hired to put together a script for a sequel, and director Rupert Sanders is already in talks to come back and direct with all the gravitas he put in Huntsman. The main actors all have contracts that extend their stay into a trilogy, if Universal so desires, so Thor and the dead eyes of Kristen Stewart are certain to return to their eponymous roles. But will the titlbe be Snow White and the Huntsman and ZOMBIES or Snow White and the Huntsman and VAMPIRES…?
