Snow White and the Huntsman Trailer

Looks like 2012 will be a good year for fantasy buffs. The big event of course will be the release of the Hobbit movie in December. But while we wait , there are a couple of other re-workings of old fairy tales with a more gritty twist coming up.

First will be the new version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (except that this one will feature eight of them, not just seven), with Kristen Stewart (of Twilight fame) as Snow White, Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and Eric Hemsworth as the Huntsman.

Titled Snow White and the Huntsman, it features a more martial Snow White who takes on her evil step-mother in a more direct manner than in the old Disney version. And what an awesome evil step-mother we are going to have!

 But the most interesting feature in this film will be the dwarves (and not dwarfs) who will presumably be closer to the kind of dwarves that fantasy fans and miniature enthusiasts are used to...

Eddie Izzard, Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins, Ian McShane...lot better than having live-action versions of Grumpy, Sleepy, Sneezy and Doc.
