The scenery is gorgeous. Charlize Theron looks great in close-up and her costumes are spectacular. The special effect of turning all those British character actors into dwarfs is impressive. Um. . .did I mention the scenery is gorgeous?
Yeah, I think I've said all the nice things I can think of concerning 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' a would-be epic that is merely lifeless at best and flat-out insipid at worst.
We've seen plenty of trailers at this point for Universal Pictures' 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' but this time around the studio decided it'd be cool if we knew a bit more of what was going on behind the scenes of the production, from the creation of the Mirror Man to what some of the actors had to endure while on set.
Many successful couples say the secret to keeping the fire burning is not spending too much time together so that absence has the chance to make the heart grow fonder. Kristen Stewart, however, apparently didn't get the memo.
She says she'd love to make more movies with her boyfriend and 'Twilight' co-star Robert Pattinson -- maybe even the film adaptation of the steamy bestseller, 'Fifty Shades of Grey.'
'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.
So much internet ink has been spilled over 'The Avengers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises' that it's easy to forget that there are plenty of other expensive blockbusters just around the corner. Consider these international posters for 'Men in Black 3' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman' a friendly nudge from your local movie studio, a reminder that yes, there are movies you should see this summer that don't star Iron Man or Batman.
The business of movie-making means that sometimes it's smarter to prep something that may not happen than not be ready for a smash hit. This explains why Universal is looking to hire David Koepp to write a follow up to 'Snow White and the Huntsman' without the film even having played in theaters.
Last night during 'The Voice', Universal debuted a brand new TV spot for 'Snow White and the Huntsman.' It's a powerful new commercial that is doing a very good job distancing this Snow White film from 'Mirror, Mirror.' But what is that song playing throughout the commercial? Let's investigate!
'Mirror Mirror' has barely been in theaters for less than a couple of weeks and Universal Pictures has already determined that 'Snow White and the Huntsman' is the best movie of them all, so much so that they're willing to put their money where their mouth is with slowly but surely putting together the building blocks for a spinoff movie. What character can be so attractive for them story-wise that they have to move forward with this?
The past month we've been flooded with a vast array of teaser trailers for every other major summer movie, making us all bubble with anticipation over what we think looks to be the best of the upcoming season. Now the carrot is being dangled in front of our faces again with a couple of new television spots for 'Dark Shadows' along with 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'
