‘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.

Lily Collins to Play Snow White

The Blind Side actress Lily Collins (pictured, via) has been cast as Snow White for The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.

Deadline reports that Eat, Pray, Love actress Julia Roberts will play the Evil Queen and The Social Network actor Armie Hammer will play Prince Andrew Alcott. Director Tarsem Singh will helm this project.

According to Monsters and Critics, “the modern day retelling of Snow White finds the vengeful heroine joining forces with a gang of seven dwarves after her evil stepmother kills her father.” The movie will hit theaters in June 2012 to avoid box office clashes with Snow White and the Huntsman in December 2012.

Three Snow White Movies in the Works

Beginning in 2012, three different adaptations of Snow White will hit theaters: The Brothers Grimm: Snow White (2012), Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), and Snow and the Seven (2013).

According to The Film Stage, the first will have a “darkly comedic flare;” the second will focus on the Huntsman character, and the final film will feature martial arts action (The video embedded above shows a musical scene from the 1937 Disney version).

Casting rumors have emerged about two of the projects. Julia Roberts may appear in The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.
