Trivia

Evan Daugherty cited Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke (1997) as the main reference and inspiration for the film. The white stag that Snow White encounters in Sanctuary is a direct nod to Miyazaki. See more »

Goofs

As Snow White flees with the white horse, when she mounts (at around 27 mins), it has neither saddle nor blanket. As she rides into the swamp (at around 28 mins) the horse has a not quite white blanket over it's back. When the horse mires (at around 29 mins), the blanket is gone. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
The Huntsman: [narration] Once upon a time, in deep winter, a queen was admiring the falling snow, when she saw a rose blooming in defiance of the cold. Reaching for it she pricked her finger and three drops of blood fell. And because the red seemed so alive against the white she thought, "If only I had a child as white as snow, lips as red as blood, hair as black as a raven's wings, and all with the strength of that rose." Soon after a daughter was born to the queen and was named Snow White.

Who told Kristen Stewart she could be an actress?
5 June 2012 | by marcia-varaschinSee all my reviews

The movie is good (not great, though), specially because of the visual effects and Charlize Theron acting. She is great, beautiful, impressive, plays her role full of passion, as usual. Also I think there was no need for a 127 minutes picture. It could last less time, because in some moments I felt like they were just dragging it for no reason. I expected more, but all the problem is with Snow White choice. Kristen Stewart is like my refrigerator, no matter what I put in it (milk, soda, eggs, vegetables, meat), it is and it will always be a refrigerator. And so is she. She is always the same, no matter what role she is playing. If she can be an actress, so can my refrigerator. They are both cold and have no expression.
