There are going to be severed dwarf limbs littering the forest if the dueling Snow White movies get their way. Days after Universal scheduled Snow White and the Huntsman to open weeks before Relativity Media’s Brothers Grimm: Snow White hit theaters, Relativity has scooted their take on the fairy tale up to March 16, 2012. So this must be what it feels like to hold a poison apple in your evil sorceress hand. Metaphorically speaking.
Not that Snow White and the Huntsman should climb into the glass coffin just yet; the films aren’t even really vying for the same audience. While the Lily Collin’s Brothers Grimm: Snow White film is an action comedy co-starring Armie Hammer and a gang of warrior dwarves, Kristen Stewart’s Snow White and the Huntsman is a dark take on the classic tale. Which one will be better? Check in next week, when the competing studios will most likely release both of them in fairy tale film battle to the death.
