You know what excites us most about Snow White and the Huntsman? That it revolves around two incredibly strong women, neither of whom use overt sexuality as part of their character. From this new trailer for the film, out in Mexico, it’s clear that both Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron are down to kick some serious butt, and the supporting characters are – gasp! – men. How cool is that? We love that Snow White leads an army into battle while wearing actual armor and not a metal mesh bikini. We love that the Evil Queen can crush a human with the touch of her hand. We love seeing both the protagonist and antagonist played by women and we can’t wait to see them duke it out to the death.
Judging from the trailer alone this seems to be a step in the right direction for Hollywood; so often women are portrayed as frazzled, hysterical and barely dressed (see: What To Expect When You’re Expecting trailer, out today). It’s about time we women got some ass-kickers in our court.
