They are really milking fairy tales this fall, from Grimm to Once Upon a Time, they are loving the money.

This actually looks really good though I can tell the Evil Queen is going to carry this movie.

The Evil Queen makes it look good, but then I have to remember the movie will probably have Kristen Stewart talking and that'll bring it down.

Why did they have to put a battle\war in it? That Evil Queen has a terrible accent. Why Kristin Stewart?

The Queen is the only part that really interests me. XD
They put a battle in it to depart from the original; I believe they wanted sort of a grittier version.
But they're making another Snow White movie to come out a little after this one anyway, and it looks closer to the original.

I was more psyched for this when I thought Dakota Fanning was gonna be in this, but whatev's. I'm still interested in seeing it, even though it has Kristen Stewart. I think she could do it good if she puts any of the energy she used from The Runaways in it, since I think that's the only good thing she's been in since Twilight where she actually acted.

Plus, Charlize Theron <3

It always worries me when the trailers focus on a character that isn't the main character. It's like they know they're not interesting enough and don't have the cool scenes another character would have. That's what happened with Tim Burtan's Alice movie.

Either way, it is looking kick ass.

Kristen Stewart is actually a pretty decent actor when she actually you know...acts instead of that weird stumble/stroke thing she does in Twilight.

DOES THIS REMIND ANYONE ELSE OF LORD OF THE RINGS?!
Kristen Stewart being Frodo and the people protecting her being the allies.

In my castle, plotting your demise
There are dwarves in it.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) - IMDb

Quite an interesting casting for them too: Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins, Ian McShane.

You can see a brief shot of them walking behind the huntsman.

My point on the Huntsman is still right on. This is still butchery of the classic story. Where does the Prince fit into this? Is there even a Prince? Who asked for Snow White to have action and adventure in it?

Red, Beastly, Alice, the affore mentioned Grimm (though they already did a Brothers Grimm movie) and Once Upon a Time..... and now this. Making a classic children's story dark and gritty does not make it better. I anxiously await to see how they'll eventually turn a Mother Goose story into a movie like this.

If they want to do shit like this, simply say that it was inspired by the source material, and leave it at that. Banking off the name is so cheap. The Cohen Brothers make adaptations of old stories (they've done the Odyssey and the bible's story of Job) and only mention the source material at the end credits. It's so much classier. I think I would really enjoy this otherwise. Good cast, really cool effects and monsters, it's just not Snow White in any way other than that main plot point.

I was never really a fan of Snow White in the first place so them changing it up doesn't bother me in the slightest. Movie looks interesting, I plan on watching it.

Today I was talking about Chris Hemsworth becoming the next big action hero, as a defense for him being in the Expendables 2, and as soon as I said "the Huntsman", this popped in my head...

Now all I want is to hear Hemsworth say "Darn the luck"

I agree... and the guy who does Thor in the movie Thor and the upcoming Avengers movie as the huntsman, this looks like a great movie
