There are two Snow White films hitting theaters soon, for some reason. Last week, we checked out the first trailer for Snow White & The Huntsman, which takes a moody, Twilight approach to the classic tale, and now we have the first trailer for Mirror, Mirror, which is directed by Tarsem Singh, who was responsible for The Fall, an intriguing movie that blends dream and reality, and more recently, the disappointing Immortals. It was written by three people, none of whom seem terribly experienced at writing good films.
Perhaps I’m being overly negative. Mirror, Mirror takes a farsical approach to the Snow White tale and stars Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen. In this tale, she’s far less evil than in some versions. Lily Collins (The Blind Side) stars as Snow White; Nathan Lane stars as Brighton; Armie Hammer plays Prince Andrew Alcott; and Sean Bean is The King, as he should be. You’ll likely remember Bean from Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
Mirror, Mirror hits theaters March 16, 2012, meaning it will be the first Snow White film of the new year.
