Snow White And The Huntsman Chris Hemsworth skip crop

Update: Most images removed by the request of Universal.

So, we already saw what Tarsem Singh did with the Snow White story in the family-oriented goof "Mirror Mirror," and now it's Rupert Sanders' turn. Grittier, darker and much more epic in scope, "Snow White And The Huntsman" might be one you'll want leave the little ones at home for. With the film ready to ride into movie theaters this summer, a batch of new images have arrived to prove this isn't your ordinary fairy tale.

We get a closer look at the three leads, including the beguiling Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, Kristen Stewart as her step-daughter and Chris Hemsworth as her protector. Big set pieces seem to be the name of the day, with a couple of images promising some fierce battle scenes, while lurking at the edges is a fantastical element which isn't quite being fully revealed just yet, though we have seen the odd creature here and there.

There are some who predict that the picture might swing a Cannes out-of-competition showing next month, which is not a bad guess. But even if not, you can see it in theaters on June 1st. [ONTD/Facebook]
