What hell hath Tim Burton's ugly Alice in Wonderland brought us? In the next two years, two competing Snow White tales will be rear their heads onto cinemas. The first will be Mirror, Mirror directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall, The Immortals) starring Lily Collins as the fairest of them all, Armie Hammer as Prince Charming and Julia Roberts as her Evil Queen. It comes from Relativity Media and packaged as a family friendly screwball comedy. The second will be Snow White & the Huntsmen, from first time director Rupert Sanders starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen. Which will prevail? Which will be winner? Huntsmen is looking for an edgier take to tale, however both like like high camp, do they not?
Theron, at the very least, looks the spicier villain.
