Snow White is coming back to the big screen…three times!
The classic fairy tale will take on three different versions next year.
One of them is going to be called “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Scheduled to come out in June 2012, this story will be about a huntsman who is supposed to take Snow White into a forest to kill her. This is kind of like the original story except the twist is that the tables turn when the huntsman becomes Snow White’s protector, and they work together to try to defeat the evil queen.
This version will have “Twilight’s” Kristin Stewart as the classic princess, herself. It will also be starring Charlize Theron as the evil queen, “Thor’s” Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman, and “Pirates of the Caribbean’s” Sam Claflin as the prince. It’s like a bunch of random blockbusters taking actors and cramming them together.
Another tale is set to come out in Spring 2012. “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White” will be another dark twist of the classic story that almost sounds like a “Snow White 2.” The princess and the seven dwarfs try to reclaim their kingdom after everything was destroyed by the evil queen. This film will star newcomer, Lily Collins as Snow White. Julia Roberts will be playing the queen while some other big actors will be taking on some interesting characters.
The third version of the fairy tale is supposed to be just like the original story except not a book nor a cartoon. This film looks like it’s still in production so there isn’t a lot of information yet, but hopefully it’ll have some competition with the other two films.
Three movies based on the same story coming out in one year leaves a few questions. First of all, why are they being made during the same time? Is it just to get people to talk or is it just convenient timing? Also, which version will make the most amount of money at the box office? Odds are, people might go see all three of them, but there are some that might choose one over the others. The “Twilight” haters might leave “Snow White and the Huntsman” at second best.
Also, which one looks the most interesting? And will Julia and Charlize pull off the evil queen? Who will perform it better?
As competitive as they all are, they’ll definitely be something to talk about next year. “Snow White” already has that potential to present a creepy twist. Even though there already was a live action movie with Sigourney Weaver, that one came off a little too creepy and kind of confusing.
Hopefully, the film version of “Sleeping Beauty” won’t fall behind. The spinning wheel scene would just be so cool.
