Above: Lily Collins is Snow White is Mirror Mirror
Just recently, we showed you the debut teaser trailer of “Snow White And The Huntsman” and now the fairy tale competition is slowly heating up with the release of the trailer for “Mirror Mirror”.
While The Huntsman is taking on a grimmer (pun intended) take on the classic fairy tale, “Mirror Mirror” seems to be going the light-hearted route. This version of the tale sticks a little more closely to the source material with the evil Queen (Julia Roberts) scheming to get rid of her competition (those fairer than her) and Snow White, played by Lily Collins, ending up with the dwarves. The dwarves here are a gang of bandits. Snow White eventually becomes the leader of the dwarves who help her in her quest.
Director Tarsem Singh surprises again, and this time he veers away from his highly stylised visual world that we saw in "Immortals" and "The Cell". But that doesn’t mean that the production values here are lower... in fact the costumes, set design and effects truly look magical. And we get to see the master storyteller in action, this time in a fairytale.
We also get to see another side of Julia Roberts as The Evil Queen. While Charlize Theron’s penchant for malfeasance is scary in The Huntsman, Robert’s take is full of subtle magical mischief with just the right amount of evil.
So mirror mirror on the wall, which Snow White movie will you see?
Mirror Mirror will be out next year.
