'Mirror Mirror' Trailer Featuring Julia Roberts, Lily Collins Debuts; Tries Comedic Twist
Armie Hammer and Nathan Lane also star Relativity's Tarsem Singh-directed take on the Snow White fairy tale, out March 16, 2012.
"Snow White? Snow Who? Snow Way!" say the Seven Dwarfs in the trailer for Relativity's take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Mirror Mirror.
More like "Snow silly".
The film's two-and-a-half minute trailer, which premiered on Yahoo! Tuesday, delivers an entirely different feeling than it's competitor, Snow White and the Huntsman (whose trailer debuted Nov. 10).
While the two films may be competing over content, that's where the similarities stop. Huntsman , starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth, delivered a dramatic and special-effect-laden trailer, promising a serious, foreboding and almost-epic tale when it opens June 1, 2012.
Mirror's entry is almost farcical in its tone. And while it remains to be seen how a joke-y take on the age-old tale will fare, there's one surety to come forward from Relativity's first peak at the film: Julia Roberts' Evil Queen is the real star. She's in almost every shot of the trailer (cracking one-liners the whole way through).
Lilly Collins' Snow White on the other hand, only has six speaking lines throughout the entire video.
The film, which is set to open March 16, 2012, also stars Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Sean Bean and is directed by Tarsem Singh.
