Last week we saw the first trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman. This week we get a look at the second Snow White film that will be released called Mirror Mirror. They may come from the same source material, but these trailers show that these are two very different films and should not be confused with each other.
Mirror Mirror is directed by Tarsem Sing, the man behind the visual heavy films Immortals and The Cell. It stars Lily Collins as Snow White, Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew Alcott, Julia Roberts as The Evil Queen, and Sean Bean as The King. The film also stars Nathan Lane, Mare Winningham.
In Relativity’s Mirror Mirror starring Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts and breakout star Lily Collins (The Blind Side), an evil Queen (Roberts) steals control of a kingdom, and an exiled princess (Collins) enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the object of their affection, Prince Andrew Alcott, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.
I was under the impression that both Snow White films were taking on a darker tone. Snow White and the Huntsman looks a bit more gritty and more of a mid-evil / fantasy whereas Mirror Mirror looks more in tune with typical fairy tales. That’s not a bad thing, but I really wasn’t expecting the one liners that pepper this trailer.
Even though Kirsten Stewart doesn’t strike me as the obvious choice to play Snow White, I have to say I’m leaning toward her version than I am this one. And is it just me or does Julia Roberts lose her accent about half way through the trailer?
