Of the two rival Snow White pictures heading our way in 2012 (read our breakdown here) SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN is probably the frontrunner for overall box office domination, but our money's on Tarsem Singh's MIRROR MIRROR (as it has recently been titled) being the more worthy of the two critically.
Universal's HUNTSMAN is certainly gaining a massive lead in terms of marketing, with this newly released banner poster delivering more of that promised LORD OF THE RINGS-style epicness. Check it out...
And for those not yet caught up with Universal's approach to this re-imagining, here's their official synopsis...
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White's beauty and power.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN opens June next year.
