On Monday May 14th, Hollywood returned to Leicester Square as Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth joined director Rupert Sanders for the world premiere of Universal Pictures’ SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN. The glamorous stars of this epic action-adventure walked the red carpet in London’s new-look Leicester Square, which was transformed into the magical world of Snow White.
In SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, a breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale begins.
Kristen Stewart (the Twilight saga, On the Road) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil Queen Ravenna (Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron of Prometheus, Hancock) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined that the young woman who has escaped her clutches and now threatens her reign has been training in the art of war with a Huntsman named Eric (Chris Hemsworth of Thor, The Avengers) who was dispatched to capture her.
The epic action-adventure is brought to the screen by Joe Roth, the billion-dollar blockbuster producer of Alice in Wonderland, and, in his feature-film debut, acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) accompanies the film’s international superstars as William, the young duke long enchanted by Snow White’s defiance and innate purity.
SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN will be released nationwide by Universal Pictures on May 30th 2012.
