  In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, opening June 1, Kristen Stewart ("Twilight") plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) who was dispatched to kill her.

Detail of Footage From ComingSoonNet

The footage begins with a battle that we've seen in the previous trailers.
Knights are riding on horseback, doing battle with an army that, when they're struck, shatter into tiny shards.
This appear to be the Queen's magical army. She's making her move across the land, conquering.
The queen talks to the mirror, who tells her another is now fairer than she and it will cause her power to wane.
A man is sent to steal Snow White's heart (literally), but she escapes into the Dark Forest.
The Huntsman is brought before the Queen. He's the only one who has been in the dark forest before, but he doesn't want to help catch Snow White.
We see the dark forest. It's filled with black smoke, tentacle trees, little dragons and bats.
The Huntsman finds Snow White, but helps her, traveling with her deeper into the forest to protect her.
We see some kind of a monster that looks like a bit like a minotaur. It attacks Snow White and the Huntsman.
Later, they've been caught in a trap and are dangling from a rope. The dwarfs approach.
When Snow White explains that she is the daughter of King Magnus, the dwarves agree to follow her lead.
The whole group heads to a better part of the forest. Everything that seemed ominous before is now positive. There are white horses (maybe llamas?), a giant turtle covered in moss and tiny forest sprites.
Later, Snow White realizes that she can see what the Queen sees and realizes that she can kill the Queen.
There are a lot of shots of the Queen aging.

More Detail of Footage From IGN:

The footage opens with a much bigger look at some of the battle scenes in the trailer, where two armies fight and we see several of the soldiers shatter apart into crystalized shards when swords swing through them. Queen Ravenna (Theron) is told, "My queen, yet another kingdom falls to your glory."

We see an extended version of the scene in the trailer where the Queen asks the classic, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of the all?" question and is told there is "One more beautiful than you… Snow White." The mirror adds, "She is the reason your powers wane." 

We then see Snow White (Stewart) held down by the queen's man. She asks what the queen wants from her, and he tells her, in a sadistic voice, "Your beating heart," only for Snow to hit him and make a run for it. She runs out into a town square as she's chased by guards, only to make a pretty cool running slide into a drainage system, leaping off the ledge at the bottom and into the water below. 

Chased on horseback, Snow White makes it into the forest, as the queen screams, "Where is she?!", slapping her man hard when he can't tell her.
We then see the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) brought to the queen, noting he is "one of the few who have entered into the dark forest" and survived. The Huntsman is skeptical when he is told about Snow White, saying, "She is certainly dead." In the forest, we see Snow White attacked by bat-like creatures, and hear the roars of other threats.

The Huntsman finds Show White, running up to her and holding his hand over her mouth to stop her for screaming – only for Snow to grab a knife fro his belt and hold him at bay. We then see the two of them attacked by an enormous, two-legged creature, which looks like it's made from stone or bark, with two huge horns growing from its head.

In another scene, the Huntsman is caught in a rope trap, leaving him hung upside down. It turns out the Seven Dwarves set the trap ("Oh no, dwarves..." mutters the Huntsman), and they initially taking great delight in hitting the Huntsman. The dwarves are at first dismissive when they meet Snow White, until she tells them her father was the king.

Now allies, the dwarves, Snow White and the Huntsman begin traveling together, and we see many animals and creatures they encounter – including a fascinating looking turtle camouflaged into the greenery behind it. "She is the one," says one of the dwarves, watching Snow White.

The footage ended with a quick-cut montage, as we see Snow White, now wearing armor, with a large army. Says Snow, "I can kill her." The queen at one point is seen in a very weak and withered state but also grabbing a woman and seemingly sucking the life out of her, like a Dementor in Harry Potter.

All in all, the footage was very impressive. If you liked the trailer, as I did, what we saw today promised more of what looks to be a visually lush, action-packed and very different take on Snow White.
