The more maturely-themed "Snow White and the Huntsman" appears to be a re-imagining of the classic fairytale as a war movie. Twilight fan favourite Kristen Stewart plays Snow White, opposite Charlize Theron, who plays the chillingly ruthless Queen Ravenna.
Under the tutelage of the ruggedly handsome Eric the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, "Thor"), Snow White transforms into a sword-wielding Joan of Arc figure reminiscent of Alice in the climactic scenes of "Alice In Wonderland" (the movies share the same producer). Hopefully the ending to "Snow White and the Huntsman" is more satisfying than simply having the protagonist slice off the head of her enemy.
Even if the movie turns out to be flawed, its beautiful imagery has me sold. I will be eagerly awaiting its summer release.
