It's almost like a meta-comment on the fairytale itself: Two "Snow White" adaptations, both competing for the top spot. The first, "Snow White and the Huntsman," imagines a haunting tale with an armor-clad Kristen Stewart and the second, "Mirror, Mirror," is a light-hearted, technicolor fairytale that feels like its goofy cousin.
Sure,"Snow White and the Huntsman" looks cool and is sure to bring in more of a male audience than most fairytales. But let's not discount the value of humor!
"Mirror Mirror" imagines a play-like story (that feels a bit like a middle school production) with over-the-top costumes and a quippy, strapped-for-cash Julia Roberts stealing the show.
Nathan Lane adds a bit of vaudeville-loveliness, though we're half expecting some "Birdcage" lines to slip out ("one does want a hint of color, your majesty!")
And while Armie Hammer and Lilly Collins sure look the part, the trailer (oddly enough) doesn't really focus on their impending romance. Though, we do get that steamy sword scene.
Check out the trailer and let us know who you think is, well, the fairest of them all.
