- Snow White and the Huntsman. Directed by Rupert Sanders. Starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth.
New on DVD.
Snow White and the Huntsman is a fairy tale for grownups. The original Brothers Grimm fairy tale was all about poisonous combs and red-hot iron shoes and dancing until you died: there was no singing down a wishing well. This horror story centres on the evil queen (Charlize Theron), who sucks the life out of nubile young maidens in order to stay young. Snow White (Kristen Stewart) has been locked up in a tower since she was a little girl, but when she escapes one day, the queen sends a woodsman (Chris Hemsworth) into the dark forest to bring her back.
Extended edition is packed with extras including a 360-degree set tour, a piece on reinventing the fairy tale, commentary with director Rupert Sanders, editor and visual effects supervisor, and much more.
