    Two Snow White films are currently racing to the big screen, and the latter film to be released, “Snow White and the Huntsman” showed off its cast and producers during a Hall H presentation at Comic-Con Saturday afternoon. Even though production has yet to start, stars Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin were on hand to talk about their characters and show off initial costume fittings.


    The biggest difference between “Snow White and the Huntsman,” which will be released by Universal Pictures next June 1, and the competing Snow White film from Relativity Media, which comes out March 16, is that their “rough tough” film is more on the scale of “Lord of the Rings,” whereas the other seems “softer,” said producer Joe Roth. He added that while he was an executive at Disney, they released “Armageddon” seven weeks after “Deep Impact,” and both made money. Not only that, he said that according to research, people were more likely to see “Armageddon” if they’d seen “Deep Impact” first. The two Snow White films will be released 10 weeks apart.


    Given the lack of footage, for obvious reasons, director Rupert Sanders instead showed a sizzle reel of his past commercial work, such as ads for “Call of Duty: Black Ops” and “Halo 3,” and an “audition” short film he made to show executives what his vision and tone were for the film. He told he crowd to ignore any pilfered material and music they recognized, as the short film was not made to be shown publicly.


    Sanders also said he had wanted to make a war film, so it was “weird” that he got the Snow White gig, but it oddly fits because his take on the film will feature giant battle scenes and very large landscapes full of emotion. “With commercials, you’re in a straight-jacket because you can’t really tell a story, really,” he said. Thus this was perfect film for him to lose his “cinematic virginity.”


    Certainly, Stewart and Theron seemed ready for the adventure. Stewart said part of the reason she was attracted to the role was because she got to have a sword. Theron then jokingly said to her new co-star, “I’m ready for it, b—-. Let’s go.”


    One plot point the panel presenters did disclose was that instead of seven dwarfs, “Snow White and the Huntsman” would have eight and be portrayed by the likes of Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins and Ian McShane. (“They’re my tough, East End British SAS squad,” joked Sanders.) He then added that the reason there were eight was because there’s a few great lines when (spoiler alert!) one of them gets killed. “It’s a copyright issue,” he said.

      Why Kristen Stewart, she is a horrible actress and should leave Hollywood as soon as Twilight is over.

        That's my same exact opinion too, and how many times we have to watch her bite her lips, lol.

            I agree with everyone here, she just needs to disappear off our screens and award ceremonies already. I'll definitely check out the other snow white, but I won't support anything she's in !

              Since we all agree on this, out of curiosity, who would all of you have picked for the role of Snow White?

              I think I would have chosen Olivia Wilde or Scarlett Johansson.

                Scarlett Johnsson, and as for the other Snow White film, The Brothers Grimm: Snow White. relatively unknown to most, actress Lily Collins will play. She was Tim McGraw and Sandra Bullock's on-screen daughter in film, The Blind Side.

                But this is a different kind of Snow White.

                  I wonder if the image on her shield is supposed to bear an uncanny resemblance to the White Tree of Gondor.
