Coinciding with Australian premieres in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane of Snow White And The Huntsman, Perthonalities were out in full force last night at Event Cinemas, Innaloo, to enjoy the epic fairytale-come-battle flick. Among them were at least a dozen West Coast Eagles and some Freo players to boot, leading dancers from the WA Ballet, and a few next-big-things from the modelling world. Eclectic is putting it lightly.
The film itself is a fantastical delight, with the same producers of Alice In Wonderland sparing no expense on dishing out the special effects. Charlize Theron is delicious as the wicked Queen Ravenna, and Kristin Stewart does what she does best: having a couple of to-die-for studs compete for her affections, one of these being Aussie spunkrat, Chris Hemsworth, whose Eric is reminiscent of Heath Ledger’s handsome hero in A Knight’s Tale.
With this movie version blending a love story that every girl has related to since childhood, and battle scenes of a Ben Hur stature that the boys will relish, Snow White And The Huntsman will surely attract a broader audience than even some of the storybook-turned-blockbusters that came before it.
Snow White And The Huntsman is screening nationally.
