Relativity Media has released the first official trailer for their upcoming enchanted, reimagining of the classic Snow White fairy tale “Mirror Mirror” staring Oscar winner Julia Roberts, Lily Collins (The Blind Side), Armie Hammer (The Social Network), Sean Bean (“The Game of Thrones”, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) and Nathan Lane (The Lion King, The Birdcage).
See who is fairest of them all in theaters this March 16th, 2012!
If I have to be honest, the trailer isn’t doing much for me. Especially after the debut of “Snow White and the Huntsman” last week, “Mirror Mirror” is looking rather pedestrian even if it’s meant to be more light-hearted and whimsical. I really would have to see more to crown a winner.
Here’s the official film synopsis:
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.
