Poll: Who Makes a Better Snow White, Kristen Stewart or Lily Collins?

I know I said last week that Lily Collins is radiant as Snow White in Relativity Media’s The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, but then Universal followed up with first-look photos of their project Snow White and the Huntsman – including Kristen Stewart playing Snow as a knight-princess. In this new take on the fairy tale, the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) meant to kill Snow not only saves her life, but trains her to battle the Queen (Charlize Theron) for the throne.

Turning a traditional princess figure into a fighter is becoming a trend: The King Arthur reimagining starring Clive Owen and Ioan Gruffudd also featured Keira Knightley in a barely-there leather warrior woman outfit, jumping into battles with her bow and arrow; and Mia Wasikowska also put on a suit of armor to fight for Anne Hathaway‘s army in Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland.

As gorgeous as Lily looks, I’ve always been a sucker for a good reimagining — so my vote is gonna have to go for Kristen with her sword and mysterious shield. (One site thinks the design is, curiously, the Tree of Gondor from The Lord of the Rings series.)

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    I always thought Snow White wasn’t such an interesting character. I always liked the Queen better. And if Charlize Theron is playing her, then neither Kristen Stewart nor Lilly Collins beats her.

      Well, Charlize is up against Julia Roberts in the Lily Collins version; they just haven’t released a photo of her in-character, otherwise I’d set up another poll.

    the basis of the plot is that snow white is fairer than the queen, so with kristen stewart MAJOR plot whole….

      hahaha! Thank you, Alex, for making me laugh out loud at the office.

    Lily Collins by default. At least her version of SW isn’t blatantly ripping off Alice in Wonderland.

    Oh look yet another photo of Kirsten Stewart looking miserable. This is one movie where I will be rooting for the evil Queen to whip Snow White’s ass

    Does anyone else think that poor Lily Collins looks like a plastic doll?
