Preview: Snow White and The Huntsman (2012)


A dark, realistic interpretation of the fabled story of Snow White.

  • Poster: C+


It's a bit gloomy for a poster. Without the title, you'd be hard-pressed to guess what the film was about, which denies some aspect of discovery that makes poster designs so interesting.

  • Trailer: B / B


Although it features emotionless Kristen Stewart, the design work looks impeccable and Charlize Theron looks appetizing as the queen.

I can still sense the acting debacle Kristen Stewart brings to the table. The film looks aesthetically pleasing and thematically exciting, though a few of the ways Charlize Theron delivers lines suggests she may be trying too hard. Overall, it's still something I'm curious to see.

Oscar Prospects:

Art Direction and Costume Design are the best the film could hope for at this point.
