Hey gang! Welcome to the inaugural post of my new HelloGiggles column, Fangirl This. Each week, I’ll be bringing you the one pop culture thing you should totally waste your precious time obsessing over. I’m kicking things off with a serious dose of action and girl-power with the just-released extended Snow White and the Huntsman trailer.
Know this: If there’s one thing I love, it’s a female lead in an action movie. And when that female lead is up against a female villain? Well, color me giddy. Thus you can probably imagine my reaction to the new Snow White and the Huntsman trailer that dropped Monday morning. (Stop what you’re doing and watch it now!) It involved a lot of nail-biting and victorious shouting. If you’ve been hiding away in a cabin in the woods without internet working on becoming the next Bon Iver, here’s what you’ve missed: SWATH is a darker telling of this classic fairy tale, in which the Evil Queen (played ferociously and viciously by Charlize Theron) hires The Huntsman (the ever-rugged Chris Hemsworth) to track down her competition, Snow White (the always bad-ass Kristen Stewart). But in this version, Snow White herself is a fighter, and she goes up against both the Huntsman and the Queen to score the crown as the fairest of them all. You guys, this Snow White knows how to handle a knife. Bring it on.
