Mirror Mirror is a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale starring Oscar® winner Julia Roberts as the Queen, Lily Collins as Snow White, Armie Hammer as Prince Alcott. Sean Bean as the King and Nathan Lane as the Queen's hapless and bungling servant, Brighton. An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright in a spirited adventure comedy filled with jealousy, romance and betrayal that will capture the imagination of audiences the world over.
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) rewrites fairy tale history as a wicked enchantress (Roberts) schemes and scrambles for control of a spirited orphan’s (Collins) throne and the attention of a charming prince (Hammer). When Snow White’s beauty wins the heart of the prince that she desperately pursues, the Queen banishes her to the forest, where a ravening man-eating beast hungrily awaits.
Rescued by a band of diminutive highway robbers, Snow White grows into an indomitable young woman determined to take back her realm from the treacherous Queen. With the support of her subjects, she roars into action in an epic battle that blends spectacle, magic and contemporary humor in Singh’s signature, jaw-dropping visual style.

Julia Roberts has a blast as the pantomime villainess in Mirror Mirror, a comedic reworking of the classic fairy tale Snow White by the Brothers Grimm. The Oscar-winning actress vamps, pouts and flounces around in fabulous frocks, and provides the droll voiceover that lays the foundations of the familiar and rickety plot. "They called her Snow White, which was probably the most pretentious name they could come up with," Roberts sneers, her waspish words accompanied by a slick animated prologue that sows the seeds of animosity between the wicked Queen and her impossibly pretty stepdaughter.
