Let’s just come right out and say what everyone’s thinking here: do we really need another Snow White movie? Like Robin Hood, the Snow White legend has been adapted to film many times, with varying degrees of success (the Disney version is the gold standard, but God knows there’s been plenty of other adaptations: IMDb tells me there’s no less than 20 films with Snow White in the title), and another go ‘round seems like it might be…well, a little less than original.
At least, that’s what I was thinking before yesterday’s Snow White and The Huntsmanteaser trailer arrived. This version—written by Evan Daugherty, [Edit: Daugherty's people inform us that he's the only credited writer on the film], and directed by Rupert Sanders—showed off what appears to be a bit of an epic: massive monsters, elaborate sets, Hemsworth whipping hammers around like lawn darts, and—in one very memorable shot—star Charlize Theron writhing around in nothing more than what appears to be milk. This version of Snow White might turn out to be a complete trainwreck (I’d bet against that, but who knows these days?), but if that trailer’s any indication, it’ll be one of the most interesting-looking, action-packed, Snow White-based trainwrecks Hollywood’s ever produced.
