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…?
In what’s sure to be a grand spectacle, “Snow White and the Huntsman” is set to hold its world premiere in London, England today (May 14).
With live stream coverage available below, the red carpet extravaganza is taking place at Leicester Square with the film’s leading lady, Kristen Stewart, to be alongside her Evil Queen castmate, Charlize Theron.
Also in attendance will be The Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth, who’s appearance comes just after his lovely wife, Elsa Pataky, gave birth to their first child.
As for the film, “Snow White and the Huntsman” is “a twist to the fairy tale, as the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.”
Directed by Rupert Sanders, the movie is out in the U.K. on May 30 and in the U.S. on June 1.
During her appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, Kristen Stewart revealed a new clip for the film “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
The scene features the “Twilight” cutie with co-star Chris Hemsworth and their encounter with a fierce looking troll.
In other news, Universal Pictures also released a new poster for the film, which will release in theaters on June 1.
The movie also stars Charlize Theron as the evil queen, Sam Claflin, Ray Winstone and Ian McShane.
Watch the clip below!
Offering up an added bonus ahead of the upcoming trailer debut, Universal Pictures has released two new clips from “Snow White and the Huntsman”.
With one of the short videos focusing on Chris Hemsworth’s ‘Hunstman’ character, the other gives viewers a behind the scenes peek at the fairy tale film intertwined with commentary by Chris, as well as Charlize Theron’s and Kristen Stewart.
The classic story’s motion picture reboot centers on a “Huntsman who is ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed, but instead winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.”
Directed by Rupert Sanders, “Snow White and the Huntsman” is all set to hit theaters on June 1, 2012.
Yesterday’s colorful-yet-gothic poster and this first trailer’s eagerness to boast of coming “from the producer of Alice in Wonderland” really makes it seem like Universal would love for us to believe Snow White and the Huntsman is a fanciful morsel left dangling off Tim Burton’s ass after he crapped out his Lewis Carroll adaptation. And it’s a shame, that, because the actual visuals contained in this trailer are astoundingly better than the studio’s cowardly, Burton-dingleberry scenario imply.
While Relativity Media’s competing Snow White project appears to be taking the story pretty much at face value–even casting actual dwarves as the seven dwarves–Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders and Drive screenwriter Hossein Amini seem to have made some actual, interesting choices with their adaptation, transforming the fairy tale story into a beautiful nightmare and kindred spirit to Return to Oz. Charlize Theron’s evil queen inhales souls like she’s doing a Mortal Kombat fatality! Kristen Stewart’s Snow White encounters massive woodland creatures that look like something between a Shadow of the Colossus monster and Superman‘s Doomsday! The magic mirror has been personified into what appears to be Guillermo del Toro’s droopy rendition of Silver Surfer! This is clearly the Snow White movie to beat, other Snow White movie.
