Snow White Continues to Sound Like It Will Violently Subvert Our Expectations

what is this I don't even

 

It’s hard to play an action hero who is also the most compassionate person on earth. You can’t hate. You epitomize bleeding hearts, so how the f–k do you do an action movie like that?… She has this ethereal, spiritual connection to her people—she really feels things-and so it’s like we don’t really feel empathy… I think that to truly care for something isn’t just putting yourself in that situation aesthetically and then going, “Oh my god, I feel so bad for them.” It’s truly not thinking of yourself at all. The way that you fight is that you must take out anything that hurt your people. I’m fighting evil—I’m fighting the most evil motherf–kers-and it’s fine that they’re being killed. It’s anguish. It’s literally f–king anguish. She takes absolutely no pleasure in ever hurting anything.Kristen Stewart to Box Office Magazine

I admit to being completely baffled by Snow White, no, not the “Untitled Snow White” with Julia Roberts, Sean Bean, and Nathan Lane; Snow White and the Huntsman with Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Ian McShane, Nick Frost, and Bob Hoskins. On the one hand it’s got a fabulous cast. On the other, Kristen Stewart has never quite impressed me in her previous work. On the other, it’s got a lady in full plate armor killing motherfuckers.

Snow White and the Huntsman, please come out so that I can form a verdict on you.

She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
