a Snow White earlier this year in the decidedly upbeat “Mirror, Mirror.” And now we’ll change the tone with “Snow White and the Huntsman,” which reimagines the formerly passive character as a warrior set on taking down the evil Queen Ravenna. Kristin Stewart – hopefully displaying more acting chops than her “Twilight” sulking and lip-biting – will play a fleeing Snow White as the Queen (Charlize Theron), sends the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to kill her. The Huntsman takes pity on Snow and instead teaches her the skills she needs to overthrow the Queen. This is definitely Snow White for an older audience, with a bleak, moody setting and color palette – and Theron describing her character as “serial killer-like.” While Theron will probably have a more flattering makeup job than in her last serial killer role,
we see this as an edgy and very grown-up twist on fairy tales not unlike the recent (and fairly successful) “Grimm” and “Once Upon a Time” on television. What remains to be seen is if Stewart can carry a film that isn’t about sparkly vampires — and we’re interested to find out. Look for a strong-but-not-great $35 million for Stewart’s first popcorn flick outside of the “Twilight” franchise. 4/23/2012
