SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN / Never thought I would say this, but I am actually really excited to see this retelling of the Snow White fairytale. The visuals look amazing, Charlize Theron looks stunning, and overall this looks like a quality fantasy-action film. Perhaps it is because the Mirror Mirror version of the Snow White tale looks so dreadfully awful that it builds this film up much more than it is, but visuals like Charlize in the white milk bath or appearing in the cloud of crows or even the gold creature that seeps out of the witch’s mirror, are elements that make this film look worthwhile. Either the marketing team deserves a gold star for selling this film to me or this film is actually going to be quite enjoyable. Hopefully Kristen Stewart can keep her lip-biting to a minimum and we can get a good enough performance out of her. Honestly, anything will be better than the disaster that is Mirror Mirror.
Expect To See It: June 1st, 2012
