So this trailer. So many questions…
1.) Why is Lily Collins starring as Snow White? She’s pretty, but we are not going to believe she’s prettier than Julia Roberts. Come on. Also did anyone else see Abduction? Because we did. And we do not think Lily Collins’s acting is up to leading lady standards… especially next to Julia!
2.) Why are we so uncomfortable throughout this whole trailer? Oh yeah. Snow White’s dwarfs. Is it just us that find it weird that they make jokes in the trailer about their height? Why are they continually hitting each other and being astounded by Snow White? It just… makes us uncomfortable.
3.) What is the plot line even??? Snow White goes into battle maybe against Armie Hammer, but then maybe he switches sides at some point? The trailer doesn’t even create a reason for her to be in a battle in the first place. What? Why are you fighting Julia? YOU HAVE TO HAVE A GOOD REASON TO FIGHT JULIA.
4.) Julia. What are you doing in this movie? You are clearly the only reason that this movie has a remote chance of being good. That’s not entirely true.. we like Nathan Lane as well. To him we pose a similar (the exact same) question: What are you doing in this movie?
Snow White and the Huntsman (June 1)
This trailer is straight up AMAZING. We are so on board with this warrior Snow White adaptation. Also Charlize Theron. With this trailer, instead of questions, we have compiled a list of the most awesome parts. (It was legitimately hard to choose only a couple.)
1.) Kristen Stewart does not speak. We do not intend for this to be mean, instead we are pointing out that when you have a questionable leading lady as Snow White (aka Lily Collins or Kristen Stewart), it is best to focus your trailer on the more reputable actors. We still think Kristen Stewart will be great, but in the trailer it was an excellent choice for them to pull focus from her, since the vast majority of America thinks that she is actually Bella Swan.
2.) CHARLIZE THERON. Seriously she is going to be the best Evil Queen ever. Her voiceover! Her sucking the youth out of a woman!!! What?? Why is this movie not coming out tomorrow?
3.) Charlize Theron turning into a flock of ravens at the end. We’d like to see Julia try to do that.
4.) No dwarfs appear in this trailer to make us uncomfortable. Instead Chris Hemsworth has a really large ax and is hunting Kristen Stewart.
5.) The special effects in general look 123894239075 times more legit than Mirror Mirror. The part where the soldier gets sliced in half and turns into a flock of ravens is amazing!
6.) IN GENERAL THE WHOLE THING WAS OUR FAVORITE PART!
So clearly, Snow White and the Huntsman looks like the better movie. Based on the trailers alone, Mirror Mirror has a decent shot at some Razzie nominations and the Huntsman might actually get some Oscar or Golden Globe nods for their special effects!
However, does that mean we’re not going to see Mirror Mirror? Of course not, that looks like a train wreck and we are always on board for those. We may be anticipating Snow White and the Huntsman more eagerly (and we think it will make way more money), but we are clearly going to go laugh at Mirror Mirror at the earliest opportunity. Everyone wins!
