Brand-New Trailer + Extended Preview of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’!
More Snow White and the Huntsman footage? Yes please! Watch the brand-new trailer and a five-minute extended preview of the movie here!
Whoever is running the Snow White and Huntsman ad campaign and publicity gets a gold star. Seriously. The images, trailers, and behind-the-scenes footage promoting the film keep coming at just the right times, giving us lots of exciting things to look forward to without giving away too much or appearing too frequently.
Case in point: Not too long after the release of those three awesome making-of featurettes comes both a brand-new trailer AND a five-minute extended preview of the upcoming fairytale epic. Feast your eyes!
First up, the trailer. It’ll look pretty familiar for the first minute or so—you’ll spot some of the footage of Kristen Stewart as Snow White from the featurettes, but otherwise, it’s mostly stuff we’ve seen in the previous trailer—but at about the 1-minute, 15-second mark, there’s a whole lot of new stuff that we haven’t seen before, including Snow meeting Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and the two of them battling some sort evil, tree-like monster. Here, see for yourself:
And now the really exciting thing: Five whole minutes of SWATH footage. Proceed at your own risk from here on out—if you want to go into the movie totally cold, you’ll probably want to avoid this one. However, if you’re okay with knowing more rather than less, read and watch on!
The talking points:
– This extended preview plays kind of like an abridged version of the story, so it gives us a better idea of what they’ve done with the original tale and how they’ve spun it.
– Chris Hemsworth kicking arse? Yes please!
– Also, dwarfs! The story was originally titled “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” after all, so it’s good to finally see what’s going on with them in this version.
– And perhaps most interestingly, from what we can see here, the Queen’s got a bigger reason to kill Snow White than simply the desire to be the fairest in all the land. Snow, apparently, is actually sapping the Queen’s powers, so it’s a matter of life and death. Raising the stakes is pretty much always a good idea, so hoorah for that.
I don’t know about you, Bettys, but the more I see of Snow White and the Huntsman, the more excited for it I get. Charlize Theron was right: This is definitely not your dad’s Snow White. And how!
Snow White and the Huntsman hits cinemas on June 1, 2012.
