‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ movie clip: ‘She Is the One’
May 17 update: A magical white stag bows before Kristen Stewart’s Snow White in the Snow White and the Huntsman clip “She Is the One.” (See below.) Also on display is Dominic Watkins’ superb production design.
Chris Hemsworth, whose Huntsman hasn’t bathed since long before the fall of the Roman Empire, doesn’t have much to say in the clip, but after watching the previous SWATH movie clip, I’m not sure I buy his uncouth British accent – or his lines. (Ahem, that’s a Scottish burr.)
More convincing is Bob Hoskins (Best Actor Oscar nominee for Mona Lisa, 1986) as one of the dwarves. Hoskins has a great little monologue; the way he delivers each word, you’d think he is indeed someone living in the Middle Ages:
“You have eyes, Huntsman, but you cannot see. You, who have been with her the longest. She’s life itself. She will heal the land. She is the one. Gold or no gold. Where she leads, I follow.”
See below Bob Hoskins showing ’em how it’s done in the movie clip ‘She Is the One.
First-timer Rupert Sanders
Directed by feature-film first-timer Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Huntsman was co-produced by Joe Roth, one of the producers of the Tim Burton-Johnny Depp blockbuster Alice in the Wonderland. The screenplay is credited to Evan Daugherty (Killing Season), John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), and Hossein Amini (Drive).
In addition to Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, and Bob Hoskins, Snow White and the Huntsman features the following:
Charlize Theron (soon to be seen in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus) as the Evil Queen. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) as Prince William. Ray Winstone (Hugo). Ian McShane (Jack the Giant Killer). Toby Jones (The Hunger Games).
Also: Eddie Marsan (Vera Drake). Lily Cole (The Moth Diaries). Vincent Regan (Clash of the Titans). Noah Huntley (Your Highness). Nick Frost (Attack the Block). Rachael Stirling (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen).
Hemsworth’s credits include The Avengers, The Cabin in the Woods, and Red Dawn, coming out later this year.
Domestic reviews were mixed, and the lighthearted comedy turned out to be a box office disappointment in North America. Overseas, however, Mirror Mirror has performed relatively well, especially in the United Kingdom, Russia, and Brazil.

Snow White and the Huntsman‘s Sam Claflin (Prince Charming), Kristen Stewart (Snow White), Charlize Theron (the Evil Queen), and Chris Hemsworth (the Huntsman) at the medieval Arundel Castle in West Sussex, England. The Snow White and the Huntsman world premiere was held yesterday in London.
Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror, another version of the Snow White story, opened in late March. The domestic box office disappointment stars Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, and Armie Hammer. Mirror Mirror, however, did perform better internationally.

Kristen Stewart becomes a sultry vampire in the last Twilight movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. How sultry? How vampiresque? Just check out the Kristen Stewart photo on the right, taken at the Snow White and the Huntsman World Premiere held in London earlier this week.
The Kristen Stewart dress is described as a “Gothic lace Marchesa” in The Hollywood Reporter. And whether or not you care for how celebrities dress (and I couldn’t give a damn), Stewart’s garment was a memorable fashion statement. The make-up has no description that I’ve seen, but it’s, huh, a memorable make-up statement all the same.
As part of the Snow White and the Huntsman promo, the SWATH team also posed for pictures at the Arundel Castle in West Sussex, England. Snow White (Kristen Stewart) showed up in a miniskirt, accompanied by the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron), the cleaned-up Huntsman(Chris Hemsworth), Prince Charming (Sam Claflin), and director Rupert Sanders.

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
2012, Universal, 116 min, USA, Dir: Rupert Sanders
In this visionary, Gothic reimagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale, vain queen Ravenna (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) sends an intrepid huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) into the foreboding woods to find and kill Snow White (Kristen Stewart), a princess who is prophesied as “the fairest of them all.” But when the Huntsman and tough warrior Snow White come face to face, allegiances change. With costumes by three-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. Produced by Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland) and Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and directed by Rupert Sanders (Halo 3).

Chris Hemsworth, Huntsman: Snow White and the Huntsman
Charlize Theron is possessed by the Bette Davis of The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (and The Virgin Queen) in this Snow White and the Huntsman clip. (Please scroll down.) Chris Hemsworth is the Huntsman who is brave (or stupid or crazy) enough to dare think he has the option not to do what his queen is telling him to.
The “she” referred to in the Snow White and the Huntsman clip is, needless to say, Snow White (Kristen Stewart). According to a cool-looking talking mirror, Snow White is destined to surpass the Queen in sheer fairness. The Queen, none too happy, wants Snow to melt away. Snow, however, turns out to be as resilient as she’s white.
Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror, which stars Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, and Armie Hammer opened in late March. Reviews were mixed, and the lighthearted comedy turned out to be a box office disappointment in North America. On the other hand, Mirror Mirror has performed well enough at the international box office, particularly in the United Kingdom, Russia, and Brazil.

Snow White and the Huntsman‘s Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, and Sam Claflin are currently being interviewed at MTV.News. (Please scroll down for the embedded video.) Directed by Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 1.
Kristen Stewart, best known as Bella Swan in the Twilight movies, is now discussing how she relates to Snow White. Oscar winner Charlize Theron (Monster and soon to be seen in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus) says “we saw the potential … to find … how much more you can explore with [the Snow White fairy tale].” Theron adds that Snow White’s story has “endless possibilities.” And Sam Claflin is explaining whether or not he felt any pressure after getting a role in a major movie like Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman.
Charlize Theron then made some joke about her early “softporn” (or “soft-core porn”?) career. Sorry, I wasn’t able to follow that one, as I’m watching the interview and typing at the same time. Something to do with Theron’s previous TV work.
Kristen Stewart also said that she doesn’t like to have the Evil Queen labeled a “bitch.” Charlize Theron came up with a response for that, emphasizing the word “bitch,” and adding that “I screamed so much at people [on the set] that I tore a stomach muscle” and that she became “a big pain in the ass,” begging for “crab service.” And that “Kristen loves to describe things in three words.” It’s unclear whether or not Theron got any crab service or if the rest of the Snow White and the Huntsman cast and crew ate it all by themselves.
Where’s Kristen Stewart’s Snow White on the Snow White and the Huntsman movie poster? Oh, Stewart is there, on the left, slightly below Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman. But visitor, visitor, who’s the most visible of them all? Personally, I’d say Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen, holding the biggest dagger in the known universe and surrounded by crows (ravens?) coming out of her robe. (Notice that this poster is similar but less action-packed than the French poster.)
Directed by first-timer Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 1. Though not expected to break any box office records, Snow White and the Huntsman is expected to fare quite well at the box office. After all, SWATH is Kristen Stewart’s first “commercial” movie role since Bella Swan in the phenomenally successful Twilight movies. And it is Chris Hemsworth’s other major 2012 release, right on the heels of the incredibly successful The Avengers. Even Charlize Theron, who hasn’t been much of a box office draw of late, has Ridley Scott’s sci-fier Prometheus about to dramatically raise her profile.
And, as the Snow White and the Huntsman poster tells you (in larger print than the one for the names of the stars), Sanders’ Gothic adventure drama was co-produced by Joe Roth, one of the producers who brought you Tim Burton / Johnny Depp’s global megahit Alice in the Wonderland.
