The first promo pix for Snow White and The Huntsman just dropped, and we have to say that they’re kinda the bomb. We knew our fair Kristen Stewart wouldn’t be just another damsel in distress, and here she is taking matters into her own hands with a badass shield and sword combo. That’s the K-Stew we know and love!
Kristen and the rest of the Snow White cast hit up Comic-Con over the weekend to discuss the upcoming flick. On hand were Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, Aussie hottie Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, and Sam Claflin who plays Prince Charmant. ”I wasn’t initially jumping at the chance [to play Snow White],” Kristen told the crowd. “but she is one of the most heavy-handedly sincere, seriously doesn’t let her heart cloud her mind characters. Also, I get to have a sword and stuff.” Damn right.
And as the pix suggest, it’s going to be a much darker affair than the Disney classic. Apparently they’re exploring the story of the eighth dwarf, who gets killed as the story progresses. “It’s not a little girl sitting by a well with tweety birds telling her what’s going on,” says director Rupert Sanders. Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to an R-rating we go! What would Walt say?
