In less than week we have been introduced to two different movies dealing with the beloved character, Snow White. Ms. White as you know is well known for hanging around 7 little dudes with names that fit their personality. As such the two movie battling in 2012 has the similar thing, the have different personalities, one looking to be far darker than the other.
While Snow White and the Huntsman out June 1st
which stars Kristen Stewart (fresh of her final stint with the Twilight series) playing Snow White, along with Chris Hemsworth (Thor himself) as The Huntsman and Charlize Theron as The Evil Queen, looks like it might be a good movie however I have both admiration and doubt. I love the fact that this is going very dark something you wouldn’t guess coming from a Disney character. But I’m worried that like others of its kind it could end up only being liked by teenage girls (and even being a girl myself, that is never a good sign for quality).
As for Mirror, Mirror out March 16th
which stars Lily Collins as Snow White, Armie Hammer as the Prince and Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen, looks as though it’s leaning more towards a typical yet funny comedy with some drama (although said to be darker on it’s IMDb page) unlike the other that is geared more towards action and adventure. And while I am also on the fence about this one as well, hey I’m a sucker for comedy, Julia Robert’s movies and Nathan Lane, I wouldn’t be surprised that Snow White and the Huntsman
ends up being both rated higher by critics as well as earning more at the box office.
To learn more check out the trailers below as well as their synopsis.
Snow White and the Huntsman (June 1, 2012)
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar®winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
Mirror, Mirror (March 16, 2012)
In Relativity’s Mirror Mirror starring Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts and breakout star Lily Collins (The Blind Side), an evil Queen (Roberts) steals control of a kingdom, and an exiled princess (Collins) enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the object of their affection, Prince Andrew Alcott, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.
