Studio Canal have upped their UK marketing for Tarsem Singh’s MIRROR MIRROR releasing new posters as well as some new images. The film hasn’t been getting the fair crack of the whip in views from the critics with some calling it ‘rancid’, I’ll have to admit we’ve had a dig at the film too. It may look childish compared to that other ‘Snow White’ film but what some of us maybe missing is what target audience of his is, on first impressions its children, families. However when you look back at film history at previous ‘so called kids films’ the amount of adults who like the film more than the kids so don’t be surprise if adults may dig this more than the kids.
Mirror Mirror stars Lilly Collins plays the princess Snow white who is exiled from the kingdom by the evil Queen (Julia Roberts) and finds herself been helped by the ever resourceful seven dwarfs to claim her rightful place back on the throne. Mirror Mirror is the classic Snow White story but it’s not the straight forward story as we know it, bringing in a brand of humour which maybe Pantomime in nature but us mere mortals here in UK, Ireland love that humour giving a ridiculous but fun approach which should capture our attention. Mirror Mirror also stars Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Martin Klebba, Danny Woodburn, Sebastian Saraceno, Ronald Lee Clark.
Mirror Mirror is a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale starring Oscar® winner Julia Roberts as the Queen, Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White, Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Prince Alcott, Sean Bean (“The Game of Thrones”, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) as the King and Nathan Lane (The Lion King, The Birdcage) as the Queen’s hapless and bungling servant, Brighton. An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over.
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) rewrites fairy tale history as a wicked enchantress (Roberts) schemes and scrambles for control of a spirited orphan’s (Collins) throne and the attention of a charming prince (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 is released in UK cinemas on 2nd April
