Does Mirror, Mirror win in the battle of the Snow White movie trailers?

Nov. 15, 2011by:

To answer my own article title, I'm gunna go with a "no". Sadly, this is one of those trailers that basically shows you the entire movie.

I love Tarsem Singh's style but MIRROR MIRROR falls a little flat for me. Sure, Julia Roberts is funny, however, there's way too much of her in this trailer. I was waiting forever to see more of Lily Collins. I'm also in favor of any amount of Nathan Lane. Personally, I don't feel that it's terrible by any means but if they were trying to top the trailer for SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, it didn't come close.

Check out the trailer below.

"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."

Yeaaaa no thanks. This looks exactly like I was afraid it was gonna look (all goofy and Alice in Wonderland-y). I think the debate's over about which is the Snow White movie to see.

LOL! I never would have even looked at it like that if you hadn't said anything but as it turns out that is exactly what it looks like. Good call.

Eh, I find Lily Collins a LOT more appealing than Kristen Stewart in just about every way. I prefer my Snow White lively and capable of more than just dead-eyed, emotionless staring. I know I'll be in the minority, but I'm in this one's corner. It looks a lot more fun.

I'm also a little sad Armie Hammer is licking Julia Roberts.

This trailer did nothing for me. Lilly Collins looks to be a better snow white than KSTEW...but over all the other film looks to be a lot better. The comedy in THIS film did nothing for me and I found most of the "funny bits" to be silly. And Julia Roberts did nothing for me.

i know i might get some negative feedback from this, but i actually find the trailer fun. i think tarsem singh went for a more family friendly film, packed with kiddy humor, whereas mirror, mirror is more geared towards twilight fans. when all is said and done, i think both films will please the audiences that they are made for...

I'll have the Tri-tip sandwich and a strawberry lemonade.

This comes off like a movie of the week or mini series for television. Julia seems out of her league and would be better suited hamming it up for some kids at the local community dinner theatre. I wish them well.

I don't think it's fair to compare the two because they are completely different in tones. One looks gritty and epic, while the other seems more family friendly. Other than being based on Snow White, those two films have nothing in common.

So, uh...

I stopped watching about a minute in, but: This one seems to be aimed at kids in the 7 year-old range. The other will get my money. This will get the money from my friends with kids.

The other one appeals to me more. However, I agree with others who said Mirror Mirrow looks more like a family friendly PG where, the 1st is more a like a badass PG 13 version. I think they'll both do well because they have little simularities.

Snow White and the Huntsmen is DEFINITELY the superior of the two in my opinion and this looks pretty stupid, but who wants to bet that this one will make more money? Just look at how well Jack and Jill did at the theaters, damn those family movies!

I understand that they're both Snow White movies so we are obligated to compare them... but I have a hard time with it.
They are different genres, I think that they will appeal to different demographics. But I will probably see both, because I love Tarsem and this one looks cute and the other one looks surprisingly badass. Different reasons entirely.

I'll probably catch flack for this, but I found "Snow White & The Hutnsman" trailer to be awful. This on the other hand, while more kid friendly, liked fun. Something I believe to be missing from the other Snow White.

Snow White and the Huntsman is clearly aiming for an older crowd, while this film is aimed at kids. I'll probably enjoy the other film more. But just because I preferred Bug's Life, it doesn't mean I didn't enjoy Antz as well.

I'm going to say no on this one but it looks pretty witty and entertaining in a Stardust or Ella Enchanted type of way but the cast is just not that impressive and typical. It probably has nothing on Snow White and The Huntsman film which took a twist on the old fairy tale and ran with it but this one not so much. Wasted opportunity but two very different takes.

Looks like the movie is more about Julia Roberts and less about Snow White herself (I fear the same thing for the Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp).
Pass!

Didn't even finish it. What a bland piece of garbage, especially compared to the surprisingly impressive Huntsman trailer from last week. As I said then, the Mirror Mirror folks must be shitting bricks right now.

The only thing this movie has better than the other one is Snow White. Lily Collins is so much more beautiful than Kirsten Stewart. But man this movie looks like garbage. Julia Roberts is so fucking annoying and Armie Hammer seems to be making an ass of himself

I think the best words to describe it is EPIC FAIL! It looks like a TV movie and it doesn't go for a new spin on the fairy tale or anything original for that matter... Hell, considering that it's directed by Tatsem, it doesn't even look that good.

Of course pandering should win out and this will come out the winner.

Is it wrong to want to strangle the voice over guy, he can make a movie sound cool, but most times he makes me want to go buck wild on the toilet and burn every trailer he has ever been paid to narrate.

Yes, my end trails burn through plastic sometimes , oh man, i'm already thinking ahead, fire chillie mirror special.

There was a small aspect I did like in the look... but it was ruined with all the cornball jokes and stupid stuff. What the crap is this? I remember being excited hearing Tarsem working on something like this. Heard about SWATH and was like meh. Now it's like a complete 180 for both... soo looking forward to SWATH and this... I'll see for pure curiosity. I really

What happened to Tarsem? His career began with such great promise with The Cell. But then came Immortals, which looks bad, and now this, which looks even worse! This movie also actually makes Julia Roberts look charmless and completely unfunny. Two things I had up until now thought were impossible!

Lily Collins is still probably going to make a better Snow White, but between the voice-over guy and the pop-culture references, I'm not feeling it.

Prior to seeing any images for this or Huntsman, I was under the impression that Mirror, Mirror would be better one out of the two, but simply based on this trailer I can see I was terribly mistaken.

but this is a BIG no looks so cliche and stupid. it reminds me of that god awful alice in wonderland movie. I love this director but just because I like doesn't mean I'll be liking all his movies. I'll prob see it anyways. Same thing happen when david slade did one of those twilight movies I refused to see it LOL.

This is a joke right???

There is no way that the guy who made The Cell made this movie! This looks absolutely terrible. I was actually looking forward to the Tarsem because I thought it would be dark and creepy and visually appealing. But what the hell did I just watch? Bland, boring visuals all while Julia Roberts (ugh) overacts like her career depends on it and Nathan Lane dances around like a jester who knows his career is dead. Seriously this is awful. I can't stand Kristen Stewart but atleast her version looks
