Years of writing about gritty reboots, watching violent genre films and being a rather cynical human being have left me quite jaded. So you can only imagine how nauseatingly sick I feel right now after having watched the latest, whimsical trailer for Mirror Mirror, yet another take on the Snow White fable.
Directed by Immortals’ Tarsem Singh, Mirror Mirror is supposed to be a lighter, family friendly version of the classic tale, especially when you consider that a Grimmer (Get it?) version is also coming out soon, in the form of Snow White and the Huntsman.
Okay, midgets kicking ass on spring-loaded stilts does sound kind of awesome, but I’m not certain how much family-friendly entertainment my body can take before it withers away into dust.
