New SNOW WHITE Trailer Captures All The Monsters And Battles You Loved In The Fairy Tale

This isn't your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather's fairy tale.

I won't deny that the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman looks pretty cool (except for the concept for the Magic Mirror - it really sucks, frankly. Indicative of way too much overthinking of a simple, lovely concept). I may have to deny that this in any way resembles any Snow White I've ever known.

Not that I'm some kind of Snow White purist, and any good story is ripe for radical reinvention. Whether that reinvention works or not here is yet to be seen, but the trailer does tell us that Snow White and the Huntsman is firmly in the latest tradition of fantasy battle films, complete with Lord of the Rings-esque helicopter shots of parties of people traipsing on mountaintops. It also shows us that Chris Hemsworth is as handy with hatchets as he is with a hammer.

Status: I will check out this movie based on this trailer.
