Snow White and the Huntsman teaser arrives
Wow, the teaser trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman is absolutely superb, and before I pressed play I had wondered if it was going to be cheese galore, far from it, it's packed with style and fantastic imagery as well as a strong cast.
There's only one question I have about it, why does Charlize Theron have an English accent and Chris Hemsworth a Scottish one? I'm curious as to what accent Kristen Stewart is going to be speaking with now.
Written by Evan Daugherty, Hossein Amini and Evan Spiliotopoulos, and directed by Rupert Sanders, the film tells the story of Snow White in a rather different way, or is that totally different way? Well, not totally as you can see from the trailer the core of the story is there, but it's been made darker, tougher, and filled with images and effects that you'd attribute to a very different film.
That's all good by the way because I thought we might have been in for some romantic nonsense, not so from the looks of this teaser, and it really does have me thirsty for more, despite the accents! Seriously, I'm just curious as to why they have been chosen, I'm not going to be screaming that Scottish and English actors couldn't have been used, after all the image of Theron covered in what looks like cream is, well, amazing.
Here's the blurb for Snow White and the Huntsman:
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(r) winner Charlize Theron) 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) 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.
Now, you can see the trailer over at Apple Trailers in Quicktime, or below thanks to TrailerAddict, and I would recommend watching it in high definition.
What do you think? It looks good doesn't it?
