Once again it seems that fairy tales are hot in Hollywood, thanks in large part to the massive success of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (which is strange, considering that it’s not technically a fairy tale). Both Grimm and Once Upon a Time seem to be big hits on TV this season, and as we have mentioned in the past there are multiple Snow White movies coming to theatres next year. We already saw the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman, a more action-oriented take on the story, and now we have our first look at Mirror, Mirror, which seems to be a lot more comedic and aimed at a family audience.
This version stars Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen and Lily Collins as Snow White, and it is directed by Tarsem. I have to admit, I would have expected Tarsem to be the one directing the more serious adaptation, but based on the trailer this one seems to be embracing a very goofy tone. There are still some unique visuals here and elaborate costumes, but it almost seems like they’re going for an Enchanted type of parody. The general consensus seems to be that this trailer looks a lot worse than Snow White and the Huntsman, but I just think it’s going for a totally different audience. Which version of Snow White are you more interested in? Mirror, Mirror hits theatres on March 16th; check out the debut trailer after the jump.
