If you’re not convinced you want to see Snow White & The Huntsman, I think it’s time you give Xfinity’s 5 minute preview trailer a look. Generally running down the first two acts of plot or so, the trailer more specifically gives us a deeper look at the darker, grimier aesthetic and to exactly what they degree they’re going after Jackson’s Lord of the Rings tone.
The trailer isn’t going to convince any Kristen Stewart skeptics (though she finally speaks in this preview) but with Charlize Theron putting in her off-kilter all and Chris Hemsworth doing his thing, the principles look fun. I’m also selfishly pleased to see Lily Cole involved, as her unique beauty has not shown up in enough films of late. What’s shocking though, is that Peter Jackson may well in charge of the second most interesting pack of dwarves this year, as Snow White’s troupe — made up of actors like Toby Jones, Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Nick Frost, and Ray Winstone — looks like they’re going to be an absolutely fantastic group to watch. If they don’t sell you on the movie, I don’t know what will.
All the cool monsters and supernatural shit are just icing on the dwarf cake, as far as I’m concerned.
