As so often happens in Hollywood, when it rains it pours. The past 18 months have been Super Hero overload, now it seems Hollywood is turning to fairytales. In 2012 there will be not one, but two movies about the classic Snow White fairytale.
Last week the trailer for first time director Rupert Sanders’ Snow White and the Huntsman was released. Kristen Stewart stars as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth is the Huntsman, and Charlize Theron plays the Evil Queen. This is definitely not for kids. It’s a dark take on the classic (just as the Brothers Grimm intended) and looks great.
Today the trailer for Tarsem Singh’s (Immortals) Mirror Mirror was released. This seems more comedy driven. In this take of the fairytale, Lily Collins is Snow White, Armie Hammer is the Prince, Nathan Lane is Brighton and Julia Roberts is the Evil Queen.
Mirror Mirror is out March 16 2012 while Snow White and the Huntsman hits cinemas on June 1 2012.
