Snow White Enters the Enchanted Forest and the Huntsman Gets in a Bar Fight in New Preview Clips from Snow White and the Huntsman

With The Hunger Games and The Avengers already finding tremendous success this year, it's anybody's guess who the next box office phenomena will be. Universal is hoping it will be Snow White and the Huntsman, the second live-action adaptation of the classic fairytale to open this year. Far grittier and more fantastical than Relativity Media's Mirror, Mirror, Snow White and the Huntsman boasts a cast that includes Twilight actress Kristen Stewart and Avengers co-star Chris Hemsworth in the movie's title roles.
The first preview clip from Snow White and the Huntsman showed how the movie would differ from the fairytale as it revealed both characters on the run from a giant troll, which Snow White is able to tame without resorting to much violence. With several new preview clips arriving online, the more action-oriented elements of the story are being highlighted, especially in a clip where Snow White confronts the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) while the Huntsman and Prince William (Sam Claflin, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) fight off magical guards Ravenna has created from shards of her castle's ceiling.
The next clip shows the Huntsman, who is a "drunken mess" at the start of the movie, being thrown out of a bar in a scene previewed earlier this month.
The next clip shows the title duo's first meeting, with the Huntsman chasing Snow White through a dark forest until he begins to question why he has been hunting her in the first place.
In the last clip, the Huntsman and the dwarfs — 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 — watch as Snow White interacts with the Enchanted Forest.
