This spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale stars 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 ("Game of Thrones") as the King and Nathan Lane ("The Birdcage") as the Queen's hapless and bungling servant, Brighton. When an evil queen steals control of Snow White’s kingdom, the exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright. "Mirror Mirror" is 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.
HitFix Reviews and Ratings
CJulia Roberts stars in 'Mirror Mirror,' which is the first of two 'Snow White' themed movies to hit theaters this year, and it turns out to be a slight and silly movie that is aimed primarily at young audiences.
A-Films like "Shrek" favored postmodern snark over romance in the post-Disney fairytale -- Tarsem's funny, engaging, exquisitely designed "Mirror Mirror" proves you can have it both ways.
