Snow White and The Huntsman vs. Mirror Mirror: Battle of the Snow Whites


Fairy tales are the new black apparently. There are so many fairy tale projects this year (Grimm on NBC and Once Upon A Time on ABC for example) that its become official that Hollywood has no new ideas.  Universal and Relativity released their trailers for their respective Snow White projects this week. Universal’s project is Snow White and the Huntsman which stars Kristen Stewart (Twilight, Panic Room), Charlize Theron(Monster, Italian Job, Hancock), and Chris Hemsworth (Thor). The film is a twist to classic story in that the Huntsman (Hemsworth) is sent to kill Snow White (Stewart) by the evil queen (Theron) but he then soon becomes her protector and they all fight to take out the evil queen.

Relativity’s film is Mirror, Mirror which stars Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Abduction), Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman, Closer, Erin Brockovich) and Armie Hammer (The Social Network, J. Edgar). It is more of the classic story that we all know and love. Roberts plays an evil queen that steals control of the kingdom and has the princess (Collins) exiled. She gets the help of seven rebel dwarfs to win back her kingdom. Hammer plays Prince Alcott, the object of the princess’ affection.

So after watching the trailers I can say that I’ll definitely be seeing both movies but I’ll looking forward to Snow White and the Huntsman more because Charlize Theron looks amazing as the evil queen. Just so deliciously evil. I’ll see this movie despite of Kristen Stewart. You see they didn’t have her say anything in the trailer. The whole selling point of the movie is Theron. Mirror, Mirror reminds me of The Princess Bride. It looks like it has that same campy, fun factor that Princess Bride had. Hell it looks very 80s. I’ll see this because there are actors in it that I like. I watch everything Julia Roberts and I have been enjoying Armie Hammer’s movies since he did The Social Network last year. Mirror, Mirror hits theaters March 16th, 2012 and Snow White and The Huntsman will be out June 1st, 2012. Which will you see? Snow White and the Huntsman? Mirror,Mirror? Neither?

One thought on “Snow White and The Huntsman vs. Mirror Mirror: Battle of the Snow Whites”

  1. I will be seeing the Huntsman…yes, yes, the Huntsman. I’m willing to give Ms. Stewart the benefit of the doubt. She was impressive in Panic Room and generally does pretty well in her campy movies. Everyone EXCEPT Billy Burke is horrible in the Twilight movies, and I know Peter Facinelli is good, especially in “Nurse Jackie.” And I think Pattinson will be good in “Bel Ami.”

    I love Charlize. Seriously. She’s like fine wine- she gets better with age, but she’s always been of impressive stock. She’s been on my radar since “The Devil’s Advocate” and I don’t think I’ve disliked anything she’s been in (except I think Mighty Joe Young, which I liked as a kid but wouldn’t watch now, so I don’t count it). 🙂
    I also think Chris Hemsworth can be a surprise delight. I’m interested…
