After getting three great new images from the film just yesterday, we’ve now got another new image from the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman to share with you tonight. The film is the darker of the two Snow White films due to come out this year, and everything we’ve seen so far has been beyond promising.
Led by Kristen Stewart in the lead as Snow White, the film also stars Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Nick Frost, Eddie Marsan, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Toby Jones, Lily Cole, and Bob Hoskins.
“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.”
Rupert Sanders is making what looks to be a very impressive directorial debut, with a script co-written by newcomer Evan Daugherty and Oscar-nominated Hossein Amini, who wrote the screenplay for last year’s Drive.
This new image, courtesy of the film’s Facebook page, gives us a close-up of Theron looking fearfully at her own reflection before the mirror, no doubt with concern for her fading looks, and it comes with the following quotation:
“It once pained me to know I am the cause of such despair. – The Queen”
Theron’s performance looks remarkable judging by that immense first trailer that was put out towards the end of last year, and I can’t wait to see how things play out when she and Stewart are pitted against each other in the film, with Hemsworth fast on the heels of Stewart’s Joan of Arc-esque heroine.
Snow White and the Huntsman will be with us on 1st June this year, both in the UK and the US, and is set to light a fire at the box office to kick-off the summer blockbusters in style. I can’t wait.
