Until now, Snow White and the Huntsman seemed like another exercise in name recognition – especially since two studios were tackling the same iconic figure at the same time. After this new trailer and feature – especially since the feature is essentially a 5-minute-long trailer with some incredible scenes – it’s clear that this thing has the potential to be amazing.

The effects that director Rupert Sanders has built with Hydraulx, BlueBolt and others is definitely the star here. Still, Charlize Theron is proving to be a terrifying presence that embodies that confusing fear that comes from someone so beautiful being so murderous. Plus, Kristen Stewart looks like she’s bringing some real life to her character, and Chris Hemsworth isn’t slouching here either. Add to that a killer cast of character actors, and you’ve got a promising mix of visuals and story.

Check out the new trailer and the truly excellent feature for yourself:

The wizards over at XFinity are hosting the feature, and it’s highly recommended if you like melting mirrors, Theron wading without cover into a magic pool of wax and Hemsworth shoving an axe into a guy’s throat.

The movie hits theaters on June 1, 2012.

Will you plan to see it?
