Looks like Snow White and the Huntsman is going to be one dark fairytale.
Slashfilm has revealed new banner art for the upcoming adaptation, which offers the first look at the unique visuals director Rupert Sanders has planned for the movie outside of the character posters released this summer. The banner shows Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Charlize Theron as the evil Queen. You can see a larger version here.
One of two Snow White movies currently in production, Snow White and the Huntsman is the more action-oriented of the two and follows Snow White as she learns the art of war from the Huntsman, who was hired to kill her by the evil Queen. The movie will feature dwarfs, all named after Roman emperors instead of character traits, eight in total. The dwarf cast includes the leader Caesar (Ian McShane), angry Nero (Stephen Graham), burly Tiberius (Eddie Izzard), timid Claudius (Toby Jones), blind Constantine (Bob Hoskins), twins Trajan (Ray Winstone) and Hadrian (Eddie Marsan) and Nick Frost as Gus, who is likely the comic relief. Sam Claflin(Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) plays the young Prince who is enamored with Snow White.
Reportedly planned as a trilogy, Stewart recently said that, despite already starring in the Twilight movies, she wouldn't mind if the movie started a franchise. She also admitted to accidentally giving co-star Hemsworth a black eye while shooting a scene.
