So, I'm excited for this week's DVD/Blu-Ray release of Snow White and the Huntsman. It came out on Tuesday and, while I haven't had a chance to see it yet (in theaters or the video release), the trailers have definitely piqued my interest.
Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman (IMDb) were two Snow White movies, released around the same time (they bumped them apart a bit) that, while quite different, both featured a Snow White who wasn't simply laying around, waiting for her prince to come save her. She wasn't the Disney version of Snow White. She wasn't a damsel in distress who couldn't do anything for herself.
As much as I loved 'Mirror Mirror' with as different as Snow White and the Huntman looks - with Kristen Stewart's Snow White in armor and Charlize Theron's evil Queen Ravenna looking deadly but also pretty amazing in the clips - I can't wait to see it. It looks like a great, darker twist on the tale.
Movie synopsis from IMDb:
In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.
ThinkJam, helping promote the film's release sent along some things I could post, here's one I think is fun:
