Ooh, the pendulum has swung back over to Universal in the battle of Snow White movies, with the studio first out of the gate with a trailer for "Snow White And The Huntsman." And you know what? It looks pretty damn impressive.

Directed by Ruper Sanders and starring Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Sam Clafin, Lily Cole and Sam Spruell, the film is a retelling of the classic fairy tale in which the woodsman (Hemsworth), who is meant to bump off the titular princess (Stewart), winds up training her instead to fight her evil stepmother (Theron). It's going to be bit more of a serious take on the story than Tarsem's kiddie-driven "Mirror Mirror," which easily explains the darker, heavier tone in the trailer. Theron looks like she's loving every minute as the baddie, playing the evil queen with some sexy panache. Hemsworth still seems to be in Thor mode (though, it's effective), and as for Stewart? Well, Bella fans might be a bit bummed because there's not much of her in this spot, though the brief instances of her wearing armor and wielding a sword are promising. The special effects look solid, the scope is there, so yeah, as far as first impressions go, so far, so good.

"Snow White And The Huntsman" will ask you to look in the mirror on June 1, 2012.
