Charlize Theron Doesn't Look Happy In This Snow White And The Huntsman Photo

Those who saw Jason Reitman’s Young Adult glimpsed Charlize Theron’s dark side through her excellent performance as writer Mavis Gary. Given the nature of the film, it seems likely that Mavis’ personal and emotional issues differ in tone from what we should probably expect from Theron’s portrayal of the villainous Queen Ravenna in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman. Then again, both characters are known to spend a fair amount of time in front of the mirror. Mavis’ shined-up outer-beauty came from regular attention, time and money spent on her hair, nails and face, whereas Ravenna’s may come from more magical methods. Regardless of the means, a common thread of vanity may exist between the two characters on some level. Whether or not there other similarities between them remains to be seen, but we’ll find out when Snow White and the Huntsman hits theaters this June.

In the meantime, part of the draw for the Rupert Sanders directed Snow White and the Huntsman comes from what we’ve seen of Theron in the trailer. And now, thanks to E! Online, we have a little bit more to see of the character from a photo the site posted today. It features Theron as Queen Ravenna, seated at her throne, wearing a pointy crown and looking like she might be displeased about something.

She may just be thinking (or scheming), but I’m going to speculate that she’s not happy about something. There seems to be a certain amount of control in the expression on her face. It’s the way she’s holding onto (or clutching) what looks like the beak of a raven-shaped armrest that suggests she’s not quite as composed on the inside as she is on the outside. But I suppose frowning a lot comes with the territory when you’re an evil queen.

Snow White and the Huntsman makes its way into theaters on June 1, 2012. More about the film can be found in our Blend Film Database.
