The Trailer for 'Snow White and the Huntsman'. The films stars Chris Hemsworth, who is featured in 'The Avengers' and 'The Cabin in the Woods'.

2012 Could be this guy's year!

Here's hoping it's better than Thor. But what is up with Kristen Stewart as Snow White? I'm perfectly - very - happy with the idea of the role being someone strong and competent rather than just an empty beauty. But she's SO mediocre an actress...
Let me know if this gets posted somewhere where quicktime isn't necessary. Stupid work computer.
I adore Chris Hemsworth.
Finally saw it on Deadline. Charlize is amazing (girl crush heartily renewed), Chris looks incredible and Kristen seems to not be in it much. I approve.
I loved Thor! Easily my favourite movie of the year (sorry, I just had to counter your negative thoughts Phearlez, in the interest of balance ;)). I just listened to the hilarious commentary of Eclipse, featuring Kristen Stewart and now don't feel so badly about her anymore, so i'm looking forward to seeing this.
Interesting effects!
A non-quicktime version can be found here.
Bare in mind each of us may view our childhood heroes in a different light. Just a little spin to the torment here.
That looks really good actually. And Snow White as Joan of Arc? Hmm.
Yeah, this looks much better than I expected. I immediately go to a bad place when I hear Kristen Stewart, but if she can pull it off, it might not be half bad!
@phearlez, didn't you notice how KS didn't utter a single word in the trailer? Seemed very conspicuous if you ask me. Apart from the scene where she was wearing armour, she could easily just have been Bella TBH. I wonder if her lines were that bad, they're tryibg to keep her from ruining the excellence of the other actors in the trailer so people will not be put off any more than they already are by the fact KS is in it at all?

Otherwise, I was rather impressed. It has a bit of a Satrdust-esuqe feel to it, and I've always preferred my story tales dark and gritty, brothers Grimm style.
So...where are the dwarfs?
I am loving this trailer. It has a real Excalibur type feel to it for me. Of course KS not being strongly featured in the trailer for a movie where she plays one of the titular characters does seem odd, but I think it's a good choice. Centering the focus on Charlize Theron and almost making it look like it's her story works for the trailer. Lets just hope the movie can live up to it.
