Lost in Previews: Mirror, Mirror

About a week after the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman premiered, the first trailer for the other Snow White film, Mirror, Mirror, also came online.  The whole look and feel of this Snow White is completely different, and this one is catering to a completely different audience.  This story looks more like the Disney version, and is probably going to be more family friendly than the other one.  I can see where some people are going to prefer this version more, but it is just going to depend on what kind of films you like to see.  Like with the first trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman, the Mirror, Mirror trailer also focuses mostly on the Evil Queen played by Julia Roberts.  There are actually real-life dwarves in this version.  The cast is comprised of Julia Roberts,  Lily Collins, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Mare Winningham, Sean Bean, and Michael Lerner.  The film is directed by Tarsem Singh.

“Mirror Mirror is a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale starring Oscar® winner Julia Roberts as the Queen, Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White, Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Prince Alcott, Sean Bean (“The Game of Thrones”, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) as the King and Nathan Lane (The Lion King, The Birdcage) as the Queen’s hapless and bungling servant, Brighton.  An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess 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.

Visionary director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) rewrites fairy tale history as a wicked enchantress (Roberts) schemes and scrambles for control of a spirited orphan’s (Collins) throne and the attention of a charming prince (Hammer). When Snow White’s beauty wins the heart of the prince that she desperately pursues, the Queen banishes her to the forest, where a ravening man-eating beast hungrily awaits.

Rescued by a band of diminutive highway robbers, Snow White grows into an indomitable young woman determined to take back her realm from the treacherous Queen. With the support of her subjects, she roars into action in an epic battle that blends spectacle, magic and contemporary humor in Singh’s signature, jaw-dropping visual style.”

Mirror, Mirror is in theatres March 16, 2012.
