Just five days after Universal Pictures debuted its teaser for Snow White and the Huntsman, Relativity Media has released the first trailer for Tarsem Singh’s far more colorful and lighthearted take on the fairy tale, Mirror Mirror.
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) rewrites fairy tale history as a wicked enchantress (Julia Roberts) schemes and scrambles for control of a spirited orphan’s (Lily Collins) throne and the attention of a charming prince (Armie 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.
Mirror Mirror, which also stars Sean Bean as the King, Nathan Lane as the Queen’s bungling servant Brighton, opens March 16.
