Kristen Stewart has been excited about “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Like, really, really excited about it. Every time MTV News has spoken to the actress about her first blockbuster movie since she starred in “The Twilight Saga,” she’s expressed how much pride she takes in Rupert Sanders’ theatrical debut. So when we caught up with Stewart at “Snow White’s” junket, we had to ask if the movie met her expectations. It turns out that it did.
“I was so excited,” she said about the opportunity to watch the film. “It’s rare when you see concept art, it’s always cooler than the movie ends up being. It’s inspiration, I suppose. That’s the way Rupert Sanders got the job as director, is kind of putting together this five-minute version of the movie and presenting the darkness and lightness of the world.”
As someone who got the chance to watch Sanders’ concept art video at Comic-Con last year (and is a fan of his previous work with commercials), I can confirm that the visual ideas he had for the movie were breathtaking. We get a sense of that in the trailers and clips released for the film, but it’s definitely exciting to hear that Sanders’ clear vision fully translated onto the big screen.
“I thought that it was insane because it felt like two different people did it. It was like so, so beautiful when it was light and so exuberantly happy, and then when it was dark, it was wretched, it was disgusting,” Stewart said of the concept art. “When I first saw the movie, I saw that. And I was really like, wow! Everything I wanted it to feel like, everything I wanted it to say, it’s there.”
“Snow White and the Huntsman” also stars Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. It’s due in theaters on June 1.
