In an enchanting twist, the classic tale of Snow White will be reborn in the movie Mirror Mirror (in theaters March 30, 2012). Staring the beloved Julia Roberts as the Queen, Lily Collins as Snow White and Armie Hammer as Prince Alcott the previews for this new tale take a leap from Disney’s animated version that I have become accustomed to watching, and I cannot wait.
While fairy tales are written with little girls in mind, the new trend to jazz up the classics for a more adult pallet has me wanting more. (If you’ve seen the hit fairy tale shows Once Upon a Time and Grimm, you know what I mean.)
The theatrical trailer reveals that a side of humor will be served up with this new interpretation along with Robert’s infectious giggle. A combo that is sure to keep me smiling. If the movie is half as good as it looks from the trailer, it could very well become a new favorite in my book. (I haven’t been this excited about a movie opening in a long time.)
This spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale stars 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 (“Game of Thrones”) as the King and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the Queen’s hapless and bungling servant, Brighton. When an evil queen steals control of Snow White’s kingdom, the exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright. Mirror Mirror is 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.
