Snow White and the Huntsman storms the 'green' carpet

A Hollywood star cast takes on the classic story of Snow White this year, complete with twists and turns that sees a modern-day Snow White take on the evil Queen herself.

Rupert Sanders' directorial debut 'Snowman and the Huntsman' is a contemporary take on the fairytale and sees the feisty princess train alongside the huntsman in the art of war.

South African actress Charlize Theron, who plays evil Queen Ravenna, told ITV London's Entertainment reporter Lucrezia Millarini however, that landing the part was a "dream".

She was joined by fans, cast and crew at the 'green' carpet premiere today at Leicester Square.

Having made a success on the Twilight trilogy, Kristen Stewart plays a combative Snow White.

Stewart said she would rather play a happy-go-lucky 'Doc' from the original dwarf line-up:

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth plays huntsman and mentor to Snow White, who guides the young princess until her final battle.

Hemsworth, who is now mentor to his own daughter India, revealed fatherhood is "fun and great".

And it seems that the film has left no big names off the list.

Among the 'dwarves' that turned out for the premiere were Ray Winstone, who plays Gort, and comedian Nick Frost, who is Nion in the movie.

Even veteran British actor Bob Hoskins plays one out of the 'eight' dwarves.

Despite the icy relationship between the characters on the film, the atmosphere was electric on the green carpet.

Even Stewart said she preferred "Sam and Chris right now" over her Twilight co-actors.

The film opens on Wednesday May 30.
