NBC/Universal has evidently decided that they don’t want to suck at making movies anymore so they went ahead and took the classic tale of Snow White and made it “darker and more epic”. Some cynics point out that the very premise of the film is fundamentally flawed, being a story about Charlize Theron getting jealous because Kristen Stewart is prettier than she is. Which quite frankly doesn’t make any sense. Superficial stupidity aside, it looks like the film is actually shaping up quite well so hat’s off to our dear friends over at Universal Studios for not sucking anymore. The films June 1, 2012 release date is fresh off the heels of Tarsem Singh’s Mirror, Mirror (49%), which was a more family-friendly, comedy-oriented and generally less cool Snow White version. What is Snow White and the Seven Dwarves really about you ask? The true beauty of an Idealist’s heart.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is a classic German fairy tale about a vain and wicked Queen who’s magic mirror tells her that she must consume her step daughter’s heart in order to maintain her beauty. Snow White’s heart is such a prized possession because it is believed to be endowed with a rare and extraordinary brilliance. Failing to apprehend Snow White, the Queen sends a Hunstman after her, a mission that ultimately fails as Snow White’s diplomacy succeeds in disarming the Huntsman. The two stumble upon a pack of dwarves, those of which are also no match for Snow White’s empathic allure. The group bands together and Snow White embraces the true destiny of the Idealist.

It looks like Universal Studios is pretty excited about not sucking anymore and wants to keep things moving.
