So when director Tarsem Singh called his Snow White movie “sickening kiddie”, man, he wasn’t kidding around. One look at the trailer for “Mirror Mirror” and you gotta admit, the dude was being completely honest. If you’ve seen Singh’s “Immortals”, then you’ll be kind of shocked by what he’s done here. The two films may share some similar visual flairs, but they are polar opposites in terms of tone. Heck, the other Snow White movie, Rupert Sanders’ “Snow White and the Huntsman” looked more like Singh’s “Immortals” than “Mirror Mirror”. Take a gander at the trailer for “Mirror Mirror” below and see if you disagree.
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.
Starring Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Sean Bean, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Mare Winningham, and Michael Lerner.
