Charlize Theron has described Snow White and the Huntsman as "epic".

The Academy Award-winner explained in a recent interview that director Rupert Sanders's dark fairytale is unlike any project she has ever worked on.

"It really is epic in scale, it is gorgeous, it is disturbing," Flicks and Bits reports Theron as saying. "It's always walking this very fine line of fantasy and reality, heightened fantasy and harsh realities. I think that's the thing that grounds it and makes you care, makes you connect, makes you hooked."

She further explained: "At the same time it's an incredible feast for the eyes. It's beautifully shot, this film is really, really gorgeous. Scale-wise, and on how epic it is, and on how visual it is… combined with the actors Rupert got to play in this, I mean the dwarves alone, the cast is incredible!

"Grounding the world in hyperreality, I think that's something people will really connect with. At the core it's going to be something emotionally that really moves them. I think that's the ultimate thing you can ask for in a film."

Theron's co-star Kristen Stewart recently joked that she thought she'd "ruined" Snow White and the Huntsman by accidentally punching Chris Hemsworth during the filming.

Snow White and the Huntsman opens in cinemas on June 1 in the US and the UK.
