Cheers, hope you enjoy.

Win! Snow White & The Huntsman Goodie Bags!

The wonderful folk over at Universal Pictures Ireland have given us two Snow White and the Huntsman goodie bags to give away. Each goodie bag contains:

  • an Apple clutch bag
  • a T-Shirt
  • an Apple Charm; and
  • a Huntsman bag

They’ve also sent on the following behind-the-scenes videos. They aren’t too spoiler-y (everybody’s familiar with the basic myth) and are actually quite insightful when on the. I have to say, I’m looking forward to seeing how director Rupert Sanders brings the story to life – it certainly looks to have a wonderfully gothic production design.

Purely as an aside, I’m still not used to Chris Hemsworth’s normal speaking voice.
