Watch the dramatic Snow White and the Huntsman trailer NOW

There are two Snow White movies coming out next year—and they've been engaged in sort of a fairy-tale arms race. But now, with this first trailer, Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth's Snow White and the Huntsman fires the first arrow.

Say what you will about the Twilight flicks, but whatever their faults (and, yes, they are legion), Stewart isn't one of them: Her porcelain looks can be put to good use, and she's a fine actress when she's actually given a role to play. On the flip side, Oscar winner Theron seems to dig being a bad girl. A lot.

And Hemsworth—well, that guy's just a big damned hero.

This is director Rupert Sanders' first feature, but by the looks of things, he's got style to spare. We won't know for sure until Snow White and the Huntsman opens on June 1, 2012.
