"Oh my God, I can't believe you're doing this for your first movie, Rupert. It's crazy."

Snow White and the Huntsman comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on September 11, and we've got an interview with one of the most talented people who worked on the summer blockbuster, three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood. You know her work from The Silence of the Lambs and Memoirs of a Geisha, and she's also worked with Tim Burton on many of his best films, including Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow and this summer's Dark Shadows. We got to talking about working with first-time feature director Rupert Sanders, developing costumes for beauty and battle, and the age-old question of who would win in a fight, her or fellow Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell. 

Enjoy!
