'Snow White and the Huntsman' Featurettes Go Behind the Scenes, Reveal Footage (Video)
Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the darkest and most evil of them all?
That would be Charlize Theron, as cast of the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman make abundantly clear. The Rupert Sanders film drops a new trailer next week, but ahead of that release, Universal has unveiled three new behind-the-scenes featurettes that drop the viewer right in the middle of the epic action.
No, this is no animated Snow White, or even Mirror Mirror, the upcoming candy colored spin on the fable; there is plenty of battle footage, with star Kristen Stewart in full body armor as she takes on an enemy army in a pitched battle outside the castle. Then there is the brutish Chris Hemsworth, who is always ready for a fight, discussing the giant, violent set pieces that set this version apart.
Theron cackles and huffs with a chilling fierceness as the Evil Queen, and in one of the videos, explains just how power-hungry her character is and what she's willing to do to secure her throne.
The Universal film hits theaters on June 1.
