The first trailer for Mirror, Mirror, the re-imagining of the Snow White fairy tale starring Julia Roberts, Lily Collins (The Blind Side) and Armie Hammer (The Social Network), was released on November 15.
In a totally different vein to the dark and dramatic Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth, in theaters next summer, this version offers an amusing take on the Brothers Grimm story. The comedy is also a departure in tone for Tarsem Singh who directed the action epic Immortals.
Julia Roberts's Evil Queen makes sarcastic quips, the dwarves crack jokes and even "the fairest of them all" Snow White, played by Collins, has an ironic line.
The fantasy follows the wicked queen who has stolen the kingdom and banished Snow White from her throne. In her scheme to marry the Prince, she plans a ball which backfires when the Prince meets and falls for Snow White.
The footage features the above scenes as well as a sword fight between the Prince and Snow White, who leads a band of thieving dwarves. Stylish sets, costumes and visuals reveal "the untold adventures of Snow White" with romance and humor.
Mirror, Mirror opens March 9, 2012, in Sweden, March 16 in North America and April 5 in Germany and other markets, and then continues to roll out around the world.
