Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who has the fairest poster of them all? Snow White and the Huntsman or Mirror, Mirror?
This week Relativity Media released the first set of posters for the Snow White adaptation, Mirror, Mirror, directed by Tarsem Singh. In a completely different light than its competition, Lily Collins and Julia Roberts glow in red as they stand before a stark white background. Certainly, a much lighter tone than the posters released a month ago for Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron.
Julia Roberts sat down with Extra and talked about what it was like playing one of Disney’s most ruthless villains, The Evil Queen. At first, the 44 year-old actress had doubts about taking the role:
“I was like, this is a terrible idea. I was against it a thousand percent,” said Julia. “[But] I’m such a fan of [director] Tarsem [Singh] and fell so under his spell! It was pretty fun,” she explained.
Julia also shared her feelings about having to treat Lily Collins like she was the worst person on Earth:
“I was terrible. I think I might’ve slapped her once for no reason! Just because she’s pretty!”
Mirror, Mirror also stars Nathan Lane and Arney Hammer. This film hits theaters everywhere March 16, 2012.
In Relativity’s Mirror Mirror starring Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts and breakout star Lily Collins (The Blind Side), an evil Queen (Roberts) steals control of a kingdom, and an exiled princess (Collins) 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. The film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the object of their affection, Prince Andrew Alcott, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.
