I admit, I am truly stoked for this weekend’s Snow White and the Huntsman. I’ve not seen any early reviews (if in fact there are any out yet), so all I’m going on is the trailer and the principals attached — Hemsworth, Theron, Stewart — but it looks stunning. Even if — as I expect — the film itself lacks substance, it’s going to be a goddamn pretty film at which to look. That was enough to make Immortals an engaging mess earlier this year, and I prefer Charlize Theron to Henry Cavill anyway, never mind that Maxim Magazine INEXPLICABLY placed Kristen Stewart some 60 spots ahead of Charlize on their Hot 100 this year (don’t ask me how I know).
Anyway, Interview magazine has a stunning photoshoot of the two leads ahead of the movie’s release. You still won’t find Kristen Stewart cracking a smile, but you know what? Glum suits some people just fine. I didn’t hear anyone bitching about Thora Birch circa Ghost World.
