'Snow White & The Huntsman' Character Posters/Trailer

The trailer, really, is a showcase for Charlize Theron, who absolutely brings it. Very nice evil queen, indeed. I'd watch just for her performance. (Love the rendition of her mirror and coat of crows). And I like this little ditty of hers:

Lips red as blood
Hair black as night
Bring me your heart
My dear dear Snow White

Curiously, Kristen Stewart gets no lines. I'm supposing there will be a trailer for each character. Like these posters:

It's worth noting the release date: Summer. IMDb lists the release date for the other Snow White production, 'Mirror Mirror', as March 16 while SWATH will roll out June 1 (both in 2012).

In the middle of March 'Mirror Mirror' will be going up against 'The Raven', 'The Bully Project' (a doc), 'John Carter', 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel', 'Silent House', and 'Playing the Field', all in their second week. The only flick opening the same weekend will be '21 Jump Street'. Fairly soft competition. In its second week 'Mirror Mirror' goes up against 'A Thousand Words' and 'The Hunger Games', which will be tougher competition but will draw on totally different audiences, so MM may have found a niche for successful family oriented counter-programming.

In its opening, 'Snow White & The Huntsman' will go up against 'Battleship' (in its 3rd week), 'Men in Black III' (in its 2nd week) and 'Rock of Ages'. The following week it faces off against 'Madagascar 3' and 'Prometheus'. Competition of another class entirely, and SWATH won't be counter-programming, it'll go head-to-head with these movies.

Seems to support the notion SWATH is expected to have a broader appeal and compete better than 'Mirror Mirror'.

If you want hi-rez versions of these posters (947 x 1500 pixels), Apple has them.
