Full Metal Jackets: Who’s The Fairest?

Kristen Stewart brought new meaning to the phrase “Hi, ho!” when she hopped from Team Robert’s bed to Team Rupert’s (Sanders) in a scandalous affair. Now it looks like Best Buy and Future Shop will take extra precautions by locking the Blu-ray of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman‘ inside a chastity SteelBook in the U.S. and Canada.

From the film’s synopsis:

In this spectacular action-adventure, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) is Snow White, the only woman in the land fairer than the evil queen Ravenna (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron). Ravenna wants nothing more than to destroy her young rival, but she doesn’t know that Show White has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) the queen dispatched to kill her. Together with a handsome prince (Sam Claflin) enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power, they assemble an armed force to recapture the kingdom. This breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders is, in the words of Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV, “A film that soars with creativity, stylistic genius and amazing battle scenes.”

The SteelBook will be exclusively available at Best Buy in the United States and Future Shop in Canada on September 11th. The front cover features a classy image of a tree with a lone enticing apple hanging from one of its branches. (Click the images below to enlarge.)

The back cover showcases Chris Hemsworth wielding an axe at the top, while Charlize Theron as the wicked sorceress queen is featured prominently in the center:

The inside has a nice double page spread of the castle amidst a murder of crows:

The Blu-rays will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack. Supplements will include an audio commentary and the ‘A New Legend Is Born’ featurette. Blu-ray exclusives include ‘Reinventing the Fairy Tale’, ‘Citizens of the Kingdom’, ‘The Magic of Snow White and the Huntsman’, ‘Around the Kingdom 360° Set Tour’, and Universal’s Second Screen.

The SteelBook for ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ is currently $24.99 at Best Buy and can be pre-ordered here. Future Shop has it for the same price (in Canadian funds) here.

    Why do studios continue to author audio tracks with only 5.1 channels?! 5.1 audio is a thing of the past. I can see no reason why every new major blockbuster isn’t authored with a 7.1 channel audio track.

  2. The mention of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ reminds me of one of Josh Zyber’s finest hours. When the film was released in theaters, he quipped (and I’m paraphrasing): “Can someone explain how the movie sells Kristen Stewart as “the fairest of them all”? Has a plague of blindness fallen across the land?”

    I have quoted this last sentence to my friends and family (those that understand English, that is) over the past few months and it always makes them laugh. Genius.

    Not putting Kristen Stewart on the cover is the best way to sell her films.

    Firing her from the sequel is a step in the right direction.

    But what they need to learn how to do is not cast her in the first place.

    I really wanted to like this film. With the exception of the poorly cast Kristen Stewart it looked promising. IMO it either should have been a 4 part miniseries or 45 minutes shorter.

  5. Love that quote of Josh’s… 😉 SO accurate. Managed to see this at the cinema, and it’s actually quite a good fun fantasy film. Nothing shockingly amazing, but good. Although Kristen Stewart wasn’t bad (for her), she was the weakest link in the whole thing, with her one expression and that she doesn’t hold a candle to Charlize.

    Also saw Mirror Mirror recently, which wasn’t anywhere near as bad as it looked like it might be (though feels bizarrely small scale). It is light hearted fun and does have some amusing moments. I thought Lily Collins stole the show as Snow White… Now if they’d made Huntsman with her, they would’ve been onto a real winner! If they do make the sequel, they should just get Lily to play the part. 😉

    My favourite Snow white is still Snow White: A Tale of Terror, with Sigourney Weaver’s wonderful portrayal of the ‘evil queen’ (though merely a countess, if I remember rightly, in that version).

      I remember that Snow White Movie, (A Tale of Terror). Makes me want to watch it again, remember it vaguely.

      I also thought Mirror, Mirror would be pretty bad, but was pleasantly surprised by how much fun it was to watch.

      On the other hand, I thought Snow White and The Huntsman was going to be the better of the two. And it was for the most part, I agree with Jason that it was a little long, except for the terrible casting of Stewart.

      Full disclosure: I’m not a fan of Kristen Stewart and haven’t seen a film with her that I’ve liked her in yet!

      • The full version of the Sigourney Snow White is on YouTube for free! Don’t know if it’s legal, so I won’t post the link, but you can find it by simply typing “snow white a tale of terror” in the search box. The second result is a 1:36:03 file!
