Once..twice upon a time for fairytale; SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN 12A.

Once upon a time. No, hold it, that's not right. We've just seen this enchanted tale told as Mirror, Mirror... which must mean that this movie is twice upon a time.

Anyway, we're back to the fantasy world of wicked stepmothers, innocent, fair maidens and dashing heroes for this latest reworking of the Snow White fairy tale.

As you've come to expect, there is a twist to the well known story, as the huntsman (Chris Hemsworth), ordered to take Snow White into the woods and slay her, becomes her protector.

Another alteration is there are eight dwarves.

And this vein of comedy relief has meant some inspired casting, including Ray Winstone, Bob Hoskins, Ian McShane and Nick Frost.

Fans of Twilight will hardly be able to contain themselves as they line up to see Kristen Stewart delivering more of the same as Snow White.

But the star of the show is Charlize Theron, who revels in the role of the wicked Queen Ravenna.
