|Julia Roberts and Charlize Theron in dueling roles as the evil queen|
Given Julia Roberts comedic ability, she's been well cast as the cheeky, scheming queen. Mirror Mirror is directed by Tarsem Singh, who directed the beautiful monstrosity, the Immortals. Tarsem is well-known for his beautiful films, so it's no surprise that the costumes in Mirror, Mirror are impressive, but as we saw in the Immortals, beautiful costumes and visuals do not make a good movie. Despite his shortcomings, I will continue to rave that Tarsem's 2008 film, The Fall, was a masterpiece.
But alas, we shouldn't rule out first time director of Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders. We've yet to see what he can do and that's exciting. From the preview it appears that Sanders knows his way around a camera. I thought that I'd prefer Mirror, Mirror, however, after viewing both trailers, I'm leaning towards Snow White and the Huntsman, despite the casting of Kristin Stewart, who is perpetually dishwater dull. If only Lily Collins played Snow White in both films. That said, making Snow White a warrior princess is an interesting concept. I'm game.
