Battle of the Snow Whites: New Look at K-Stew in ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’; ‘Mirror Mirror’ Pushed Back
Universal and Relativity continue their tug of war over their respective adaptations of the Snow White tale. First of all, Relativity has pushed the release date for Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror back two weeks from March 16th to March 30th. No explanation was given for the move but the movie will now open against Wrath of the Titans and The Pirates! Band of Misfits rather than 21 Jump Street which is already garnering positive word of mouth from advance screenings.
Mirror Mirror, starring Lily Collins and Julia Roberts, didn’t exactly get off to a great marketing start with a borderline farcical trailer getting mostly negative reactions (from what I’ve seen across the internet). Compare that to the marketing campaign for Snow White and the Huntsman with Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, which featured a surprisingly compelling theatrical trailer.
Now, a new image of Stewart has appeared on the movie’s official Facebook page and while I don’t really understand the point of releasing a close-up of her face, it’s still a nice reminder that she is actually in the movie and looking really pretty to boot. After all, It almost felt like Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen had been stealing all of the spotlight so far. Snow White And The Huntsman will arrive in theater on June 1st.
