Great ‘White’ way

'Huntsman' bows in London

Universal split up London’s Leicester Square on Monday. One section morphed into a Grimm and grizzly forest, the other into an enchanted fairy land for the world bow of “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

Pic’s sinister sorceress Charlize Theron traversed through the trees on the enchanted lawn and the forbidden forest’s black carpet to greet fans, joined by huntsman Chris Hems-worth and Snow White herself, Kristen Stewart.

The Grimm tale transposition switches Snow’s apron and broom for armor and sword, throwing more punches than most. Ray Winstone, who plays dwarf Gort, backed his own feisty, magically minuscule crew. “To me the dwarfs have always been like the Mafia,” he noted.

Joe Roth produced the pic, alongside debut helmer Rupert Sanders. Sanders exposed the dwarfs’ mock buffoonery, announcing, “We’re a couple of dwarfs short of the full monty,” jesting of an absent Bob Hoskins, “He’s at the Phuket premiere, slightly by mistake — one of the great practical jokes of the dwarfs.”

Guests later partied at Royal Courts of Justice, doubtlessly to pass sentence and banish, over some drinks, those still concealing wicked ways.
