While the big summer buzz is mostly attached to The Avengers, Prometheus, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Dark Knight Rises, Snow White and The Huntsman has been steadily building up steam on the way to its June 1 premiere. We’ve already seen a great full trailer, received news of a pre-approved sequel, and caught a great poster and solid new clip. Now, MTV has released a clip of what looks like the climactic battle between Kristen Stewart’s Snow White and Charlize Theron’s Queen Ravenna—and it looks good.
Taken out of context, it’s a little chaotic, as Chris Hemsworth seems to be leading some kind of assault against some pretty stunning CGI baddies within a castle’s walls; that said, the intensity/chemistry between Stewart and Theron is the main attraction here. Get this: Stewart actually emotes in the scene, showing more emotion than her typical gape-mouthed Twilight expression by letting loose with battle cry before attacking Theron.
While the clip leaves us hanging by obviously not showing the results of the final confrontation, it does offer up a nice preview of what is increasingly appearing to be a very solid and interesting take on the Snow White tale. We’ll know for sure when the film hits theaters on June 1; until then, we’ll be hitting “replay” on the video below.
What do you think of the video? Will you be seeing Snow White and the Huntsman?
