Universal Pictures has released this beautiful banner art for the upcoming Rupert Sanders directed film “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
This is not your typical fairy tale, where Snow White is a dainty Disney princess in need of a man. No, in this reimagined version she wears armor and kicks ass, as how all princesses should. The film stars Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, and Sam Claflin. The film is set to compete at the box office with Tarsem Singh’s “Mirror Mirror.”
Here’s the official film synopsis:
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) 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.
