Watch the Trailer for Tarsem Singh’s ‘Snow White’ Adaptation


Everything’s coming up Snow White these days, with multiple competing fairy tale adaptations about the fair princess. We recently saw the trailer for Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, which finds Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart as the princess — except she has a sword and kicks all kinds of ass alongside Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth. It’s definitely a much different movie than Tarsem Singh’s adaptation of the Brothers Grimm story — which the director is aiming at children — but it’s hard not to compare the two pictures. Featuring Phil Collins’ daughter Lily in the lead role, the trailer for Mirror, Mirror has finally arrived.

The Cell director’s grand, lush visual style is definitely on display here, but there’s a whole lot of awkward Julia Roberts humor (she plays the evil queen). Still, kids will probably love it, and they deserve something stunning to look at. (Hopefully they don’t get the Scarface joke, though.) The Social Network’s Armie Hammer features as the prince, Sean Bean stars as the king, and Nathan Lane takes on a character named Brighton (huh?). Hit the jump for a preview, and then revisit the other Snow White trailer for a comparison. Mirror, Mirror hits theaters on March 16, 2012.
