With the release of not only the Mirror, Mirror trailer but also the Snow White and the Huntsman trailer we are forced to compare them. I for one am excited for both and am intrigued at how different they really are. The movies have taken a VERY different approach from one another.
Release Date: March 16, 2012
Stars: Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, Armie Hammer
Mirror, Mirror looks lighter and more fun than its action packed counterpart. If you were wanting to take your kids this is the one I would choose. Though I'm not a huge fan of Lily Collins' eyebrows, did you get a look a them... yikes.
Snow White and the Huntsman
Release Date: June 1, 2012
Stars: Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth
Snow White and the Huntsman looks a lot darker and more cinematic. I think it might be closer to the original Grimm version. I will be the first to admit I'm not Kristen Stewart's biggest fan (Team Danielle Panabaker for Bella!) but I think she will be good and Charlize looks like she is going to be the fierciest of fierce.
If neither of these appeal to you, there is always the original.
