second full trailer
at the end of last week,
Snow White And The Huntsman
has responded in kind with the release of a pair of new images.
The first of the two shows Charlize Theron looking menacingly sexy as the wicked Queen, whilst the second shows Chris Hemsworth’s huntsman leading the dwarves into battle.
And whereas Mirror Mirror ’s dwarves are a wise-cracking, cartoonish bunch, this mob are a much grittier proposition. A bunch of grizzled warriors looking for a worthy cause, the septet are played British character actors Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Eddie Marsan, Nick Frost, Toby Jones and Eddie Izzard.
As you can see from the new pic, their stony expressions and matted beards would suggest they’ve got a lot more in common with The Hobbit ’s vertically-challenged ensemble than they do with Sleepy, Grumpy, Bashful and co.
Directed by Rupert Sanders, Snow White And The Huntsmen looks to be shaping up into a proper, grown-up fairytale, with nary a second of slapstick to be found. If you only go to see one Snow White movie this year (and to be honest, one is probably enough), the smart money should be on this one when it opens on 1 June 2012.
