Snow White and the Huntsman
This spring, moviegoers had the chance to watch not one but two feature films updating the Snow White story for contemporary audiences. (That's in addition to Once Upon a Time, ABC's fairy tale drama series, revolving around Snow White, Prince Charming, and the daughter who doesn't know her parents are fairy tale royalty.) Tarsem Singh got to market first with Mirror Mirror, featuring Lily Collins as Snow White and Julia Roberts as her wicked stepmother. It was terrible. But at least it was first!
Snow White and the Huntsman arrived a few months later: It matched Mirror with another Oscar winner in the wicked stepmother (this time, Charlize Theron), and bested it with a much more famous Snow White in Twilight star Kristen Stewart. Since then, of course, we've all learned the scandalous Huntsman backstory: Stewart's affair with her director, Rupert Sanders, leading to the end of both Sanders's marriage and Stewart's long relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. So you can rent the movie on demand and decide whether you can see any evidence of Stewart's wandering eye, I guess? Or just wait for Once Upon a Time; Season 2 starts September 30. And it's free.
