As I said in my review, one of my favorite parts of Snow White and the Huntsman was the use of digital effects to turn a great cast of normal-sized actors into pint-sized dwarves. But a group of little actors are pretty pissed about the whole thing, with one midget theater group driving a protest against Universal.
With not much else to do this weekend, I went without much expectation to see Snow White and the Huntsman. Over the decades, the story of Snow White has been interpreted and re-interpreted countless times, but could this new Snow White from first time director Rupert Sanders bring anything new to the table? Actually… yes. Snow White and the Huntsman, while not the best movie you’ll ever see, is surprisingly fun, creepy and worth the price of admission.
I’ve been hearing about this movie for a year and honestly I didn’t give it much thought, and that’s not just because it’s got Kristen Stewart as Snow White. I just didn’t think Hollywood could deliver a non-kiddie Snow White movie, but here you are.
Universal’s got their big-name Snow White film, Snow White and the Huntsman coming out next summer, and Entertainment Weekly snagged some pictures of Julia Roberts in costume as the Evil Queen, Lily Collins as Snow White and the entire Little People’s Actors Union #104 as the Seven Dwarves.
Following the Snow White and the Huntsman panel today at Comic Con, Universal released the first official photos of the Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Clafin in character.
The production of The Wolverine has already suffered the setback of director Darren Aronofsky leaving the project… and then there was that little earthquake in tsunami in Japan, making getting together a film crew in Japan a little bit difficult right now… and then comes the news that Hugh Jackman may put The Wolverine on hold to appear in Snow White and the Huntsman, which already has Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron and possibly Viggo Mortensen on board among others.
