Which Snow White Will Be the Fairest?

posted by Nell Minow

Next year will bring not one but two new movies about Snow White.  One looks like an “Ella Enchanted“-style or “Shrek“-ish post-modern version, with Julia Roberts as the evil queen and Lily Collins (daughter of rocker Phil Collins, last seen in “The Blind Side”) as the beautiful princess.  The other is a more haunting re-telling of the story, with the evil queen played by Charlize Theron and “Twilight’s” Kristen Stewart as Snow White.

    They look very different in tone, tempo and vision. I’m looking forward to both!

    Am looking forward to seeing both of them – Mirror, Mirror reminds me of Enchanted. (Humor, modern twist to it). Where the one with Kristen Stewart reminds me of the historical figure Elizabeth Bathory, known as the Blood Countess, (also reminds me of Stardust), with a very dark, horror side to it.
