First Snow White and the Huntsman trailer is more epic than you might imagine

Nov. 10, 2011by: Paul Tassi

In the eternal race to see which SNOW WHITE project can dominate the other, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN appears to always be a step ahead by first having a title (the other film is now called MIRROR MIRROR), and now being the first to have a trailer.

The "teaser" spot actually shows quite a lot. I'm having trouble deciding whether it looks amazing, or like a super high budget CollegeHumor parody of how ridiculous it is that we're taking all the simplest classic stories and turning them into full-length blockbuster action epics.

That said, you really can see the vivid visual stylings of director Tarsem Singh. Oh wait, he's doing MIRROR MIRROR? Damnit! I am, however, upon my third viewing, tempted to put this in the "awesome" rather than "awful" column. Though I could be proven wrong.

Extra Tidbit: I like the non-focus on Kristen Stewart. Charlize definitely should get most of the screen time.

Where are the dwarfs?

Really like the enviroments and the overall dark tone of the film. Plus it has Hemsworth.

I did not expect that. I am now interested. Was expecting Stewart/Helmsworth in some sort of Twilight drama but non of that was present. Charlize's is looking good and damn that magic mirror thing was cool.

ok I'm sold

That trailer was bad ass! And stop hating on Stewart. She was adorable in Adventureland.

Also
The Mirror sounded like Edris Elba from Thor which is funny since Hemsworth is in this.

This trailer really looks better than I thought!

But like others mentioned: Charlize Theron shouldn't be worried about Kristen Steart surpassing her beauty. That would be impossible.

the trailer has grabed my interest. hopefully with future trailers they will keep it. i might be willing to see it and give Stewart a chance, because shes acting opposite to Charlize Theron and its in a more actiony role so she'll have to step up her game.

the impressive parts are the ageing effects (when she sucks the youth from that girl theron gets more youthful as well SUPER subtle.)and the mirror's liquid-gold-cloth look is pretty beautiful/wicked looking.

Is it too late for them to completely edit out Stewart? She is the most boooooooooooooorrring actress ever.

Kristen Stewart

Why is it that everytime I see Kristen Stewart in a movie her mouth is always partially open.

Other than the look of the film, which is pretty sweet, the story makes this looks like a bad south park movie parody. Lets make another fairy tale, add in pointless war scenes, throw in thor, and hell, lets put in a monster for him to fight or really what's the point? All that's needed is some comic relief/ninja dwarves and the transformation to good looking but crap none the less is complete

At least with "Mirror Mirror" some people actually see Julia Roberts as a conniving, pretentious, bitch... In this, well, Charlize looks... Well incredibly hot.

I think this movie has potential. Great effects, but it worries me that Stewart and the dwarfs were almost absent from the trailer, since I bet they play a bigger part than Charlize and Hemsworth. It's like making a trailer for Episode I with just scenes of Qui-Gon, Darth Maul, and space battles (i.e., using only the best parts). Any film looks good in a trialer with the right editing.

I know I'm a minority in these parts for being a Twilight fan, but I am by no means deluded enough to think Kristin Stewart is a great actress. That said, I'm still excited for this movie! Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen is a major selling point for me on this. She is epic, and this trailer is epic. CANNOT Wait.

I'm only interested in this movie because of Kristen Stewart. She's a phenomenal actress. I guess most of you people haven't seen her non-Twilight movies. This trailer gets a thumbs down for the lack of her since I can't tell if they gave her any good material to work with.

I'll be one of the first people to defend Kristen Stewart when people judge her solely on the Twilight franchise but Charlize is most certainly going to be the highlight with her Evil Queen. They made a smart decision in focusing on her. Just my 2c.

I hope they keep it as dark as this trailer makes it out to be. I liked Kristin Stewart in Adventureland, so hopefully she doesn't bring her Twilight lip biting, constipated look acting style to this movie.

Other than that Charize Theron looked evil! Good trailer, hope the movie is good as well.

I've said from the beginning I think this movie sounds pretty awesome. The trailer was great and it didn't even show off the amazing cast this thing has (McShane, Ray Winstone, Bob Hoskins, Nick Frost, etc.). I know people just WANT to write off anything Kristen Stewart-related but at the very least you have to admit this looks way better then the goofier Julia Roberts/Nathan Lane version.
