This pissing contest just got real.
Originally Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” with Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron was set for December 2012. Relativity’s untitled Snow White movie with Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer, was set for June 29th 2012.
Then Universal pushed up “Huntsman” to a June 1st 2012 the other week, leapfrogging Relativity.
Now, EW reports that Relativity has fought back and moved up its release to March 16th 2012.
Neither film can go much earlier as they’re not in production as yet. With neither studio backing down and both intent on making their films, the question becomes which will be out of the gate first and when?
