Other than some characters shots there has been little marketing material for Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, but the first official trailer is expected to be released this week, and in preparation the studio has released a new banner featuring Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman, Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen.

Based on what we’ve seen and heard so far i’m more interested in seeing Huntsman than Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror. Singh recently described his movie as being “sickeningly kiddie”, which i’m sure there’ll be an audience for, but the darkness and seriousness of Huntsman is more appealing to me.
Snow White and the Huntsman, directed by Rupert Sanders and opening June 2012, focuses on the Huntsman (Hemsworth) who is hired by the evil queen (Theron) to track down her runaway stepdaughter (Stewart). After realizing the queen intends to kill Snow White, he helps her escape, and the pair go on the run. The Huntsman then helps train Snow White in order to defeat the evil queen.
