Fairytales are the new black. Television networks like NBC and ABC are reimaging the classics in shows like “Grimm” and “Once Upon A Time,” and an epic battle on the silver screen will commence in 2012 when Relativity Media and Universal Pictures release their cinematic takes on Snow White within months of each other. “Snow White And The Huntsman” struck a might blow by releasing a teaser trailer earlier this week. With stunning imagery, thrilling battle scenes and Oscar-winner Charlize Theron in full-on evil camp (Chris Hemsworth (“Thor) plays The Huntsman and “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1's” Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad, sword-wielding Snow White), this movie is definitely more Brothers Grimm than Disney and looks undeniably badass.
I’ve been a little underwhelmed by Stewart’s talents as an actress after suffering through her gawky performance in “Twilight,” so I’ll be the rooting for The Evil Queen.
