About "Snow White and the Huntsman" (Universal): In "Snow White and the Huntsman," a breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale begins. Kristen Stewart ("The Twilight Saga," "On the Road") plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil Queen Ravenna (Oscar(R) winner Charlize Theron of "Prometheus," "Hancock") who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined was that the young woman who has escaped her clutches and now threatens her reign has been training in the art of war with a Huntsman named Eric (Chris Hemsworth of "Thor," "The Avengers") who was dispatched to capture her. Sam Claflin ("Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides") accompanies the film's cast of international superstars as William, the young duke long enchanted by Snow White's defiance and innate purity. He is joined in this quest by dwarves accompanying Snow White and the Huntsman on their fantastical journey. The epic action-adventure is brought to the screen by Joe Roth, the billion-dollar blockbuster producer of "Alice in Wonderland," producer Sam Mercer ("The Sixth Sense") and, in his feature-film debut, acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
