Children have curious minds. Most people have reached a point when telling a kid a bedtime story where they start to ask an endless number of questions. There is not definite answer as to why Rapunzel had really long hair, or where the three little pigs learnt construction, but explanations are plucked out of thin air to appease that little person. The basic story from the fairytale ‘Snow White’ remains in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ (SWATH) and despite stunning visuals, the endeavor to give depth to the classic tale is just bedtime balderdash.
‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ is the only Snow White themed film you need to see in 2012 by the looks of the new trailer.
In the trailer we get to further explore the battle worn fairy-tale world with all kinds of different creatures and the first appearance of the dwarfs in action.
The visuals are stunning thanks to the work of director Rupert Sanders and it looks like he has nailed the slight re-working of the fairy-tale material.
Kristen Stewart even looks tolerable in the film.

‘The Queen’ takes a look at the films take on the evil queen played by Charlize Theron and for costume junkies there is a look at Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood’s work on the film.

One of the most anticipated films of 2012 is ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ yet we left it off our most anticipated list due to the Kristen ‘mumbles’ Stewart factor.
Frankly, were more interested in seeing which of the Snow White themed films comes out on top with the horrible looking ‘Mirror Mirror’ also set for release this year.
Today ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ got serious cred with the release of a new photo featuring the huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) in the company of eight dwarfs.
The band of vertically challenged warriors includes Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, and Ian McShane. Very clever casting by director Rupert Sanders’, see if you can spot them in the photo below.
