Fairy Tales in the Movies

Next year is shaping up to be the battle of the Snow Whites!  After ignoring this fairy tale for so long, Hollywood has managed to produce two separate adaptations and has them slated to come out the same year!  It’s either feast or famine I suppose.


These adaptations are hugely different takes on the same material – although it seems in both Snow White ends up being a little bit more proactive.


So the question is are you into drama and fairy tales with a darker and more sinister edge?  Then Snow White and the Huntman will likely be your choice.



If you’re looking for more of a broad comedy send up, then I’d buy a ticket for Mirror Mirror.



Of course, these assessments are based purely on the trailers.  I plan to see both and see which ones wins the Ultimate Snow White Movie of 2012 Showdown.  My money is on Snow White and the Huntsman, but I’m fully prepared to be swayed either way.


Are you planning to see either of these movies?  Which one do you think will win the showdown?
