* MedievalEuropeanFantasy / FantasyCounterpartCulture: The Land is clearly based on medieval Britain, and various regional accents amongst the cast (RP, Cockney, Scots etc) are used to complement the setting -- Indeed, all location shooting took place in some very picturesque sylvan and mountainous regions of the UK. Christianity exists among natural deities, fairies, trolls, dwarves, and dark magic. It's also alluded that the huntsman is a veteran of TheCrusades. Also shown is a Muslim-esque fishing village, where the women wrap their hair and hide their faces. Snow White also says the Lord's Prayer in the beginning of the movie.

''Snow White and the Huntsman'' is an action fantasy film based on the Literature/SnowWhite fairytale. It stars Creator/KristenStewart as Snow White herself, with Creator/ChrisHemsworth as the Huntsman, and Creator/CharlizeTheron as the Queen (named Ravenna). It was released in 2012, the [[DuelingMovies same year as another]] Snow White retelling, ''Film/MirrorMirror''. Where that film recasts the story as a more light-hearted adventure, this is a darker telling. In a land ruled by tyranny, the {{vain| sorceress}} and [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]] Queen Ravenna learns that her stepdaughter, Snow White, is destined to surpass her not only as the "Fairest One of All" but also as the kingdom's future ruler. But then the Queen learns from her Magic Mirror that the only way to remain in power is to [[IAmAHumanitarian consume Snow White's heart]] and achieve immortality. Snow White escapes into the Dark Forest and Ravenna recruits the Huntsman Eric to find and kill Snow White. Eric, however, takes pity on the young princess and teaches Snow White the art of war. Now, with the aid of eight dwarves (played by among others Creator/IanMcShane, Creator/RayWinstone, Creator/NickFrost and [in his final film] Creator/BobHoskins) and the duke's son William (Sam Claflin), Snow White begins a rebellion to bring down her stepmother once and for all.

* AdaptationExpansionAdaptationExpansion: For a lot of stuff, particularly they expanded upon Ravenna, the Evil Queen's reasons for 1) why she wants Snow dead over being the fairest of all and 2) why she needs her heart. They also added a justification for what would cause an DisneyAcidSequence in the Disney cartoon.
