While "Prometheus" may have stolen the movie trailer fire over the weekend (see what we did there?), the week is kicking off with a bang as a new trailer for the highly anticipated "Snow White & The Huntsman" has arrived, and it promises to face the darker aspects of the story head on. After all, it is a bout a Queen who wants to eat a young girl's heart.

While "Prometheus" may have stolen the movie trailer fire over the weekend (see what we did there?), the week is kicking off with a bang as a new trailer for the highly anticipated "Snow White & The Huntsman" has arrived, and it promises to face the darker aspects of the story head on. After all, it is a bout a Queen who wants to eat a young girl's heart.

It's particularly interesting to note how dead-serious the tone of the film is considering how fun/silly (think the first "Pirates of The Caribbean" film) the first scripts out there were. This version of the "Snow White And The Huntsman" trailer focuses on the relationship between Snow White (Kristen Stewart) and the man hired to track her down in the dark forest (Chris Hemsworth) by the evil queen (Charlize Theron). And while the film does look "Lord Of The Rings"-ish in spots, we must say, the impressive look of the dark forest -- both the dark and sprite-like light side -- are very unique (someone like Guillermo Del Toro would be impressed with the faeries). We also get a better look at the dwarves who help out on the journey.

We also gotta say, this thing looks like they didn't scrimp on effects either. The budget on the movie must be at least $150 million, and whatever it was, director Rupert Sanders certainly spent it. Our only quibble here is that Charlize Theron continues to walk away as being far more interesting and compelling on screen than Kristen Stewart. Is it weird that we kind of want to see her come out on top instead of Snow White? Hopefully in the context of the film Stewart will be given a bit more of a chance to shine, but she continues to be second fiddle here -- a bit odd when her character is named in the title of the movie.

"Snow White And The Huntsman" opens on June 1st. Watch both the two and five minute trailers below [embed for 5 minute preview via Latino Review, trailer via XfinityTV].
