Trailer Watch: Snow White and the Huntsman full trailer

The trailer for director Rupert Sanders’s dark, action-flick take on Snow White, Snow White and the Huntsman, looks surprisingly good, although I still can’t get over the idea that Kristen Stewart is supposed to be more beautiful than Charlize Theron. But I guess it’s a fantasy movie, so… whatever.

If you want to see more, Xfinity has a five minute preview, as well.

Aside from Ms. Theron and Miss Stewart, Chris Hemsworth plays the Huntsman, and the seven dwarves are Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham, Ray Winstone, and Nick Frost. The film hits theaters on June 1, 2012.

Trailer Watch: Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer

Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, and Ewan McGregor star in X-Men and X-Men 2 (I still can’t call it X2: X-Men United) director Bryan Singer’s latest, an adaptation of the old “Jack the Giant Killer” tale, perhaps better known as “Jack and the Beanstalk.”

I can’t tell if the film is taking itself a little too seriously or not yet from this trailer, but I like the cast, and it looks like it could be fun. I guess we’ll find out on June 15, 2012.
