Is it wrong if I root for The Evil Queen in Snow White and the Huntsman? The first trailer for the much-anticipated dark retelling of the Snow White story featuring Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and a wickedly gorgeous Charlize Theron has been released and it looks nothing short of freaking fantastic. But, you know, don’t take my word for it: Ask the mirror yourself.
Yep, the mirror doesn’t lie. It’s like Snow White meets The Matrix. Now, I know Kristen is the star. And she certainly looks great in that suit of armor. In fact, she has kind of never looked hotter. Who needs Edward and Jacob when you can be your own knight in shining armor?
But, as great as Kristen looks with lips red as blood and hair black as night, I think we can all agree that Charlize steals this show. Her Evil Queen is just delicious in a suck-your-soul-out and eat-your-heart kind of way. And how cool is that re-imagined Mirror going all Terminator 2 on us?
The Evil Queen seems to be a cross between a succubus and Elizabeth Báthory. Also, I need to see that entire milky bath scene immediately, preferably in a full-body shot. See what I was saying about delicious?
The artist otherwise known as Thor looks good wielding his axes as well, if you’re into that sort of thing. And the cinematography and sets dazzle, as do the special effect. But clearly the showdown we want to see here is a sword-swinging Snow versus a cloak-of-crows-clad Queen. Or maybe that apple already took care of that.
Leave it to Kristen to star in another movie where we’re forced to take sides. So, are you Team Snow White or Team Evil Queen? I almost feel bad for Julia Roberts now as the Evil Queen in her rival Snow White project. There’s no way she can top Charlize. I mean, her face – just look at it.
So, excited for this movie? Excited for that bath scene? Excited for K-Stew the Queen Slayer? Discuss.
