Last weekend I was whisked away to the magical Arndel castle on the south coast to interview the cast of Snow White and the Huntsman.
If you’re thinking Disney melodies and chirping birds, think again. This is the classic fairytale on steroids- as actor Chris Hemsworth himself admitted!
Its bursting with action and has a good balance of fantasy and real life, creating a world that is both believable and engaging.
The film isn’t CGI heavy and much of it is filmed in forests and woodland around England and Wales, when asking director Rupert Sanders why, he plainly answered ‘well, because filming all day with a green screen is boring!’
There’s eye candy for guys, with the gorgeous Charlize Theron playing the wicked Queen Ravenna and for the vampire fans out there Snow White is played by the pale skinned beauty herself Kristen Stewart. Both actresses have some kick ass scenes…literally in Kristen’s case, as she admitted in my interview that whilst doing one of her fight scenes she kicked Chris Hemsworth in the face…and it made the cut as well, so you can see it for yourself! New kid on the block Sam Claflin melts hearts as prince Charming, but you’ll find yourself fancying an unlikely character, the Huntsman, a small part in the classic tale, but with Chris Hemsworth at the helm, it’s a charcter you wont forget in this version!!
The highlight of the film amongst all the darkness is when we meet the seven dwarves. You’ll find yourself doing a double take when you see familiar faces and hollywood greats, such as Ray Winston, Bob Hoskins and Nick Frost! They may be small, but they have a big impact on the film and provide some real comic relief.
From the poisoned apple to the magic mirror, it’s all there, but what makes this version different?
Charlize nailed it,
