As far as the fantasy franchise goes, vampires seem to be fading into irrelevance. (Don’t worry, vamp fans: ten years ago everyone was about Anne Rice, that died out, and then came Twilight. Just think of the next decade as time to work on the next big vampire series.) Now, however, the public is getting excited over fairy tales, a la the highly successful TV show Once Upon a Time. Following this trend, 2012 will also grace us with not one, but two Snow White movies: Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman. But which do you think will be better? Watch their respective trailers after the cut and let us know!
While Mirror, Mirror looks absolutely gorgeous (Tarsem directed the movie; if you haven’t seen his film The Fall, you should at least check out some of the breathtaking screencaps from it), it just looks goofy compared to the high-tension, thrilling trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman. And I just don’t think I can genuinely like a Snow White film with lines like “Snow way!”. While I’ve never been the biggest Kristen Stewart fan, I think SWATH will give her an amazing chance to become more than Bella. And even if she fails, Charlize Theron will clearly astound audiences. Plus, there are two powerful, self-assured female leads in the movie, which I’m always a fan of.
What did you think of the trailers? Which movie will be better? Will you see either of them?
