"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
The new trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman that Universal Pictures debuted over the weekend at WonderCon has made its way online, demonstrating how eerily Rupert Sanders’ reimagined fairy tale resembles Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Lord of the Rings. Seriously, it’s calling out for a mash-up.
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
Opening June 1, the film also stars Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Steven Graham and Nick Frost.
