Snow White And The Huntsman (2012)
Snow White And The Huntsman SynopsisIn the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.

Pitch Perfect And Snow White And The Huntsman Sequels Coming In 2015
Universal Pictures kicked off their Cinema Con presentation with a remarkable mea culpa, admitting that Battleship was a failure and even that they never should have criticized people who predicted it would be a flop. But they also quickly moved on to the bright side, announcing sequels for two of their biggest hits of the past year, and one of them a complete out-of-the-blue surprise that has earned a sequel they probably never thought it would get

Universal Is Having Its Best Domestic Box Office Year Ever
This is a big year for Universal Pictures in many ways. As the studio was first founded in 1912, this year marks their 100th anniversary and they've been celebrating with hit after hit. While they've had their fair share of flops - namely titles like Battleship, Wanderlust and Five Year Engagement - they've had far more huge hits. In fact, 2012 has actually been the most successful year in the studio's history.

Hear Me Out: We Are Under-Appreciating Chris Hemsworth
Though I accused him of being "as bored to be stuck with Snow White as we are" when I reviewed the movie back in June, Hemsworth's Huntsman stood out as easily the best thing in the movie on a second viewing, essentially the only character with a pulse in the whole thing. The character is basically Han Solo with an ax

Buyers of both the DVD or Blu-ray will get feature commentary from Sanders, as well as visual effects supervisor Cedric Nicolas-Troyan and co-editor Neil Smith.

Is Kristen Stewart Better Off Without Snow White?
Universal has directly denied that Stewart is no longer involved, but you can't blame them for wondering about how to shape a sequel around a a character who's supposed to be "pure as snow," while the actress is wrapped up in a very public infidelity. But wait, can't you blame them anyway?

Weekend Box Office: Snow White Is Fairest Of Them All
Snow White and the Huntsman didn't exactly receive a fairy tale debut at the box office, but the latest cinematic retelling didn't come up short either.

How Snow White And The Huntsman Gets Female Empowerment Wrong
Sure, Snow White dons the armor and learns how to use a sword, but if you look beneath the surface of the story-- the way it depicts women as being powerful for their beauty and Snow White's implied "virginity" as all-important-- it gets a little less progressive, and a lot more like the fairy tales it's supposedly leaving behind

It's a performance that only Theron, with her statuesque beauty and willingness to get really vicious on-screen, could have done, and her performance is one of the highlights of a movie that tells the classic Snow White story, but also gives a lot more screentime to a queen she'd probably tell you is just misunderstood

Charlize Theron Discusses Ravenna In New Snow White And The Huntsman Featurette
Based on the promotions, which feature Charlize Theron's villainous character prominently, Ravenna might have been a fitting title for Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman. Of course, there's something to be said for a familiar name. Ravenna may not have made it into the title of the movie, but she's certainly front and center everywhere else, including the recently released poster, and this new featurette.
