‘Mirror, Mirror’ Trailer Features Evil Queen Julia Roberts

Relativity Media has released the trailer for Mirror, Mirror, a “darkly comedic” film adaptation of the classic fairy tale Snow White. We’ve embedded the video above–what do you think?

Here’s more from Deadline: “Mirror Mirror, described as a comedy action adventure that stars Lily Collins, Armie Hammer, Julia Roberts, Nathan Lane and Sean Bean, will be released March 16, 2012. That puts it well ahead of Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, which opens June 1 and looks more like The Lord of the Rings than a light fairy tale.”

Snow White and the Huntsman features Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart and Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth in the title roles. Follow this link to watch the trailer for that film. As we previously noted, Oscar winner Charlize Theron plays the Evil Queen.
