Universal has released an epic banner for next year’s Snow White and the Hunstman, the darker of the two competing Snow White films to be released next year.
Not to be confused with Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror, Snow White and the Hunstman is the other Snow White film, and thanks to the presence of Kristen Stewart, undoubtedly the bigger of the two. Interestingly enough, both Snow White films star women who have worked opposite Twilight stars, with Abduction‘s Lily Collins the fairest of them all in the “other” version.
The official press reads as follows: In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Hunstman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar®winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power. The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
Snow White and the Huntsman will be released on 26 December 2012 in Australia from Universal.
