‘MTV First’ shares exclusive preview of epic showdown.
By Kevin P. Sullivan, with reporting by Josh Horowitz
An exclusive, never-before-seen clip from the upcoming film “Snow White and the Huntsman” kicked off “MTV First” by teasing an epic showdown between Kristen Stewart‘s titular princess and Charlize Theron‘s Evil Queen Ravenna.
As thrilling as the sneak preview might have been, it left fans dying to know what happens when the two enemies finally do square off when the film hits theaters June 1.
The clip does give a little more insight into the beef between Ravenna and Snow White: Obviously, the Queen wants to be fairest of them all, but the death of Snow White’s father certainly adds an emotional element to the bout. In the scene, we learn that the Queen is responsible.
When MTV News’ Josh Horowitz spoke with Theron at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in January, the Academy Award-winning actress seemed impressed with her co-stars fighting spirit. “She was a good fight,” Theron shared. “The bitch brought it!”
Even though Theron was able to put up a fight against Stewart, she was no match for her unwieldy costumes, which might have done more damage.
“The costumes were more damaging than the actual fight sequences,” she explained. “I was way more bruised from my costume than I was from [fighting]. Doing a fight sequence in your sweatpants is different than wearing an 80-pound steel thing.”
At the very least, Theron could commiserate with her co-star. “[Stewart] was in full metal, I was in full metal, just getting down, it took us four hours,” Theron said.
