I know I don’t post a lot about movies..which is ridiculous given how often i go see them. Point is, I am going to start!
Recently the entertainment business has created a pattern in which they’ve been taking the classic fairy tales we knew as kids and using technology to their advantage to turn them into something more mature and dark, and who doesn’t like mature and dark?!? With shows like NBC’s “Grim“, and ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” and movies like “Red Riding Hood“, “Beastly“, “Tim Burton’s Alice and Wonderland“, and ” Snow White and the Huntsmen” the fairy tale trend is growing by the day!
There have been a lot of announcements about upcoming fairy tale remake movie projects such as: “Hansel and Gretel: The Witch Hunters“, “Snow and the Seven“, “Oz: The Great And Powerful“, “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White“, and 2 “Sleeping Beauty” and 2 more “Snow White“. None of which are due till 2012/2013. I’m most excited for “Oz: The Great and Powerful” because it will star James Franco, Mila Kunis, and Michelle Williams (what an amazing cast)!
Last week the official trailer for the new “Snow White and the Huntsmen” film was released. Kristen Stewart will be playing Snow White and Charlize Theron will be playing the Evil Queen (and by the looks of the trailer, does a damn good job!). Check out the trailer
