Snow White & the Huntsman

This new take on Snow White is all about the dark side of this German fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. It has all the scary dark stuff with little of the sweet story one thinks Snow White is supposed to be. At least when we all grew up with the Walt Disney version. In this picture Charlize Theron plays the evil witch and makes a her case for "the fairest of them all!" Who can be more beautiful then this dark Queen? The young Snow White will grow to become the only threat. Twilight star Kristen Stewart plays a Princess that can kick ass! Will prince charming be the rugged Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) or the bowmen William (Sam Claflin) son of the Duke? And when do the Dwarfs come in? Its all in this film and even more. This fairy tale has a dark forest, trolls, and some fairy's too. If this stuff seems too girly then don't be fooled there is lots of fight scenes and dark moments in this movie. This is not the Walt Disney cartoon.
