“Snow White and the Huntsman” trailer debuts, looks surprisingly cool

The trailer for “Snow White and the Huntsman” hit the web today, and it certainly looks closer to “The Lord of the Rings” films than it does to Disney’s “Snow White” adaptation. Starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, the action-packed fantasy film seems to be following through on its promises to bring an adult twist to the classic fairy tale.

There are two things that it’s clear that Universal is trying to separate their “Snow White” film from in this trailer. First, it’s definitely not going to have anything similar to Tarsem Singh‘s action comedy “Mirror Mirror” other than its titular heroine. “Snow White and the Huntsman” is battle-heavy, and I personally am glad for it, because if there’s one thing commercial director Rupert Sanders is good at it is beautifully stylized violence.

But it’s also clear from the limited screen time that Stewart gets in the trailer that Universal is trying to emphasize that this film isn’t only for the “Twilight” audience. In fact, Stewart doesn’t get one single line in the trailer. Instead, it’s Theron’s Evil Queen dictating why and how she wants Snow White to die cut against shots of Stewart’s maiden fair transforming from damsel in distress to battle-ready action heroine.

The trailer even had a few shots of Sam Claflin as the film’s Prince Charming (who, as you can probably guess, isn’t so charming after all), but if there’s one thing that’s noticeably lacking from the promotion it’s the story’s seven eight dwarves. Hopefully it’s because Universal wanted to focus on the flick’s main three characters and it’s not because the dwarves are comical, but only time will tell. At least the trailer did include an iconic shot of Snow White passed out in the snow with the poisoned apple next to her hand. But who is it that kisses her to wake her from her slumber?

“Snow White and the Huntsman” his theaters on June 1.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
