'Snow White and the Huntsman' Clips: The Evil Queen and Trolls AttackMike Sampson |
'Snow White and the Huntsman' has a lot going against it. It's the second 'Snow White' movie to come in just a few months ('Mirror, Mirror' hit theaters in late March), it's attempting to put a modern, action-movie spin on the classic fairy tale, and it stars Kristen Stewart, an actress frequently criticized for her wooden line readings.
Yet despite all this, we can't help but think 'Snow White' looks pretty damn good.
Two new clips from 'Snow White and the Huntsman' are online today, each showing off a battle sequence in the film. The first shows Snow and the Huntsman as they're going for a leisurely walk through the woods when - TROLL! (It's enough to remind you of Chris Hemsworth's "HAMMER!" delivery in 'Thor.')
The next clip finally sets up the climactic battle between Snow and the Evil Queen. And therein do we finally understand why we're excited to see this movie: Charlize Theron. The actress, who proudly declared she's going through her "bitch period," is a delight to watch as she chews up the scenery and spits it right back in the face of Stewart.
We love her, but Theron plays the bitch well (remember, she won an Oscar for playing a serial killer) and she's not backing down from the challenge here. (There's also an interesting metaphor as the aging A-list actress, holding on to her beauty takes on the hot, young "It Girl" looking to take over.)
'Snow White and the Huntsman' hits theaters on June 1st and you can watch the two new clips from the film below.
