"Snow White and the Huntsman" is a movie, starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, in which a breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale begins.

Kristen Stewart (the "Twilight" saga, "On the Road") plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil Queen Ravenna (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, "Prometheus," "Hancock") who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman who has escaped her clutches and now threatens her reign has been training in the art of war with a Huntsman named Eric (Chris Hemsworth, "Thor," "The Avengers") who was dispatched to capture her.

The epic action-adventure is brought to the screen by Joe Roth, the billion-dollar-blockbuster producer of "Alice in Wonderland," and, in his feature-film debut, acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders. Sam Claflin ("Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides") accompanies the film's cast of international superstars as William, the young duke long enchanted by Snow White's defiance and innate purity. He is joined in this quest by dwarves accompanying Snow White and the Huntsman on their fantastical journey. The characters are portrayed by actors representing a who's who of British acting masters: Ian McShane ("Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides") as Beith, the embittered leader of the clan; Bob Hoskins ("Mrs. Henderson Presents") as Muir, their blind senior statesman; Ray Winstone ("The Departed") as Gort, the ill-tempered drunkard; Nick Frost ("Hot Fuzz") as Nion, Beith's right-hand man; Toby Jones ("Frost/Nixon") as Coll, the toughest soldier among them; Eddie Marsan ("Sherlock Holmes") as Duir, the shadow to Coll; Johnny Harris ("Atonement") as Quert, Muir's musical son; and Brian Gleeson ("The Eagle") as Gus, the youngest of the dwarves, who embodies the kingdom's love for Snow White.

They are supported by a cast of both seasoned and burgeoning actors that includes Sam Spruell ("The Hurt Locker") as Finn, Ravenna's vengeful brother who abets in her dark magic; Vincent Regan ("Clash of the Titans") as Duke Hammond, William's father who leads the resistance; Lily Cole ("St. Trinian's") as the young handmaiden Greta; Noah Huntley ("28 Days Later…") as King Magnus, Snow White's doomed father; Liberty Ross ("W.E.") as the princess' prescient mother; and, in her feature-film debut, Raffey Cassidy as the young Snow White.

The film's accomplished behind-the-scenes talent is led by Roth's fellow producer, Sam Mercer ("The Sixth Sense," "Unbreakable"), director of photography Greig Fraser ("Let Me In," "Bright Star"), production designer Dominic Watkins ("The Bourne Supremacy," "United 93"), Oscar-winning editor Conrad Buff ("Titanic," "Rise of the Planet of the Apes") and editor Neil Smith ("Faintheart"), celebrated composer James Newton Howard ("The Hunger Games," "The Dark Knight"), and three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood ("Alice in Wonderland," "Memoirs of a Geisha," "Chicago").

The screen story for the epic action-adventure is from debuting feature screenwriter Evan Daugherty, and the screenplay is by Daugherty and John Lee Hancock ("The Blind Side," "The Alamo") and Hossein Amini ("Drive," "47 Ronin").

The film's executive producers are Palak Patel ("Oz: The Great and Powerful") and Oscar winner Gloria Borders ("Terminator 2: Judgment Day," "Forrest Gump").
