A second full-length trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman is now playing in theaters. There's far more fantasy and action elements in this trailer than the first one, and is characteristic for second trailers, it explains more of the film's story.

Cashing in on the buzz surrounding the imminent release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, here comes the first trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman. Notice how little Kristen Stewart is in the trailer, and when she is, she's not delivering any lines?

Your first look at the four main characters from Snow White and the Huntsman are here. That one to your left is of Kristen Stewart as Snow White herself, but in this movie she's wearing armor. She ain't the Snow White that you remember from your Disney days.
Look at the three other character photos plus the four new character banners released in our newly opened Snow White and the Huntsman photo gallery.- Universal Pictures. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Audiences can currently see Ian McShane in theaters as the pirate Blackbeard in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but his next acting job will be as a...dwarf?
McShane will play Caesar, the leader of the diminuative clan in Snow White and the Huntsman. Since the English actor is full height, likely he'll be made to appear smaller on-screen through special effects and forced perspective filming.- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Universal must want to put heat on the rival Snow White picture from Relativity Media, The Brothers Grimm: Snow White. The latter film had staked out a June 29, 2012 release date, six months earlier than Universal's movie -- but that's now changed. Universal has bumped up the intended release of Snow White and the Huntsman to June 1, 2012.
This is going to put tremendous pressure on the Relativity project, and could even possibly derail it.- Universal Pictures. Comment on this Scoop (0)

With four days left to go before his star making role in Thor opens, Chris Hemsworth has now surfaced as the frontrunner to play the Huntsman. Hemsworth is more than a decade younger than the other leading men that have been linked to the part, including Hugh Jackman, Viggo Mortensen and Johnny Depp (though at one point Tom Hardy was also in contention, or at least his name was floated out there to gauge public reaction.)
While early buzz for Thor is very favorable, and Hemsworth's move up the acting ladder to leading man status seems a virtual certainty now, he's also committed to reprising his part as the Norse god of thunder in the currently filming The Avengers. Universal wants to start filming on Snow White and the Huntsman this fall, and that might not give enough time for Hemsworth to wrap up Avengers.- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Negotiations between Universal and Viggo Mortensen have ended and it now appears that the actor will not star in the picture.
THR describes what happened: Viggo and his reps were asking for $8 million dollars plus a percentage of the gross revenue of the film. Universal was light years away from paying that kind of money to Mortensen, and then something happened two nights ago that ended the discussions and seemingly closed the door on The Lord of the Rings actor playing the Huntsman.- The Hollywood Reporter.

Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings, A History fo Violence) is in talk to play the lead male role in Snow White and the Huntsman.
According to the original source, Universal is negotiating with Charlize Theron to play the evil queen that wants Snow White killed. To counter the better known profiles of Mortensen and Theron, Universal Pictures would like to cast an unknown in the part of the youthful Snow.
Filming is scheduled to commence this summer for a December release.- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)

The gentleman that nearly stole Inception, Tom Hardy, is rumored to be circling the part of the Huntsman in this project. The scoop, brought to you by The Playlist, also offers a few details about the script: the Huntsman's name is Eric, and he was hired by the evil stepmother of Snow White, Naveena, to bring back her runaway ward. When Eric learns that Naveena plans to kill the girl the two go on the run together into the forest. Eric is also a tragic hero, having lost his beloved wife to an attack from a white wolf.
Hardy was slated to play the new Mad Max in Fury Road, but a year-long delay in that production has freed up his schedule. He's filled some of the time with an undisclosed role in Christopher Nolan's third Batman movie and is presently working on This Means War.- The Playlist. Comment on this Scoop (0)

A spec script with a director attached to it has been bought by Univeral Pictures. Evan Daugherty wrote Snow White and the Huntsman, a reimagining of the classic fairy tale about the young woman taken into the forest by a skilled woodsman who's been ordered to kill her. Realizing that he can't murder the innocent Snow White, the man lets her go where she is eventually found by seven dwarfs. In Daugherty's version Snow and the Huntsman are chained together and both left in the wilderness. It's up to the cunning of the Huntsman, who instructs the young woman on how to survive, that keeps them both alive.
The project went out to all of the major studios except for Walt Disney which already has another competing project in development (Snow and the Seven). Eventually Universal was the one that stood out from the pack and bought the project.
Attached to direct the film is director Rupert Sanders. He's done commercials for video game releases like Halo and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland, Daddy Day Care) is producing.- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)
