I’m intrigued by the writing, casting, coming, makeup and special effects that have given us Snow White and the Huntsman‘s eight dwarfs. There’s some great actors in the lineup – Eddie Marsan, Toby Jones and Ian McShane are favourites, I got to speak to Nick Frost and Ray Winstone about the film recently and they’re superb too – and the characters seem to have been rather well realised visually.
Check out this clip from when they first encounter Snow White in the movie. There’s a whiff of Time Bandits about it, but a) that’s not all, and b) Time Bandits is so good, you’d want to share some of its scent anyway.
I’m not sure about all of the dialogue there, but I think this might be another Summer movie to look forward to.
Roll on June 1st.
