Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart “Throw Down” in First ‘Snow White’ Trailer

The first trailer for “Snow White and the Huntsman” — featuring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart— has been released and promises a visually stunning twist on a classic fairy tale.

As the Evil Queen, Theron opens the clip with a chilling narration, uttering:

“Do you hear that? It’s the sound of battles fought, and lives lost. It once pained me to know that I am the cause of such despair.”

“But now their cries give me strength,” Theron narrates as the scene cuts to her sucking the life from a hapless girl before throwing her mercilessly to the ground. “Beauty is my power,” she adds.

After she utters the timeless words — “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is fairest of them all?” — the Queen discovers – to no-one’s surprise – that the pretty Snow White (played by Stewart) is her adversary set to bring her down.

Snow White and the Huntsman, currently in production, is slated to hit theaters June 1, 2012.
