Two different versions of Snow White are in the works right now and I’m wondering which one I should go see or of they’re both going to be wait for the DVD. I mean, I’m excited for both of them just because of the actors in each one. On one hand you have Mirror Mirror with Julia Roberts, she is a favorite of mine. And then you have The Huntsman that is going to be action packed but a wacked out version of Snow White. Of course, I’m comparing that to the Walt Disney version of Snow White, which probably isn’t the only version out there, it’s just the one that I’m most familiar with. I’ve only read one other version and it was pretty close to the Disney version so I have no idea what to think of these two, except I’m hopeful for both. Even though Kristin Stewart isn’t my favorite actress, The Huntsman does look exciting, even on the verge of being scary!.
Which one do you want to go see?
Mirror Mirror opens in theaters everywhere on March 16th, 2012
Mirror Mirror is a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale starring Oscar® winner Julia Roberts as the Queen, Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White, Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Prince Alcott, Sean Bean (“The Game of Thrones”, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) as the King and Nathan Lane (The Lion King, The Birdcage) as the Queen’s hapless and bungling servant, Brighton. An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess 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.
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) rewrites fairy tale history as a wicked enchantress (Roberts) schemes and scrambles for control of a spirited orphan’s (Collins) throne and the attention of a charming prince (Hammer). When Snow White’s beauty wins the heart of the prince that she desperately pursues, the Queen banishes her to the forest, where a ravening man-eating beast hungrily awaits.
Rescued by a band of diminutive highway robbers, Snow White grows into an indomitable young woman determined to take back her realm from the treacherous Queen. With the support of her subjects, she roars into action in an epic battle that blends spectacle, magic and contemporary humor in Singh’s signature, jaw-dropping visual style.
Snow White & The Huntsman Opens in Theaters this Summer
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(r) winner Charlize Theron) 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) 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.
So, which one will you go see or will you watch them both?
