Next year, two movies about Snow White will be coming to theaters: Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman.
The trailor for Snow White and the Huntsman came out recently and despite my initial reluctance about it, it actually looks like it’s going to be pretty good. Charlize Theron plays the evil queen and Kristen Stewart is Snow White. I’m not a huge fan of either of those actresses and I’m getting a bit tired of the strong female character type that has been used to the point of ridicule by now. But I’ll probably love it anyways cuz I’m a sucker for this kind of stuff.
The other movie, which presently has an earlier release date, is Mirror Mirror. This version stars Julia Roberts as the evil queen and Lily Collins (Phil Collins’ daughter!) as Snow White. This one to me has the better look of a fairy tale. But it is also directed by Tarsem Singh, whose movie The Fall is possibly the most visually beautiful movie I’ve ever seen. Judging by the stills that have been released so far, this movie will be just as beautiful. More photos available at the imdb site.
Mirror Mirror comes out in March and Snow White and the Huntsman in the summer!
