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