^I think the Audrey inspiration was intentional on Collins' part but it didn't really resonate .

It is supposed to be more light hearted that's more along the lines of The Princess Bride film but so far, it reminds me more of Anne Hathaway in Ella Enchanted (that is not a good thing). A little disappointing so far, cinematography wise since Tarsem knows how to capture amazing landscapes on film like The Fall. I'm sure the editing process will present it more polished. It's more whimsical and I won't mind seeing it with my young sister.

Snow White and the Huntsman potentially be really well received by critics since it was on the Black List (meaning great screenplay that has not been greenlit). It's definitely more intriguing since it's darker with a fables element and not to mention the cast is really solid.

It's fruitless to even compare them, one is a Sunday afternoon family film the other is some twisted version of Grimm's fairytale being aimed at the teen Twilight audience. I'm sure in their own way they'll both get an audience, they're not even competing. I think SWATH, from seeing some of the dailies, is heading into epic territory, though fantastic effects will only get you so far ( I stand firm on my previous comments about the script). The best move they ever made was getting it as far away from The Hobbit as they could, it wouldn't sit up next to what that is going become. After reading come comments in Twitter and things about Mirror, Mirror I'm shocked people are surprised it's not very dark and is more comedy/satire. It's a film with Nathan Lane in it. They weren't suspicious at that point? But Lily looks incredibly beautiful, the perfect Snow White, and one who even gets a few lines in the trailer, what a novelty.

If only MM was more like AiW in terms of "funniness" I think I´d like it, but I guess Julia is no Johnny Depp, nor Singh is Burton... not that is a bad thing, just not my cup of tea.

I hope SWATH´s producers aren´t counting on the Twilight audience cause they´ve proven that they only care about the actors when they´re Bella & Edward.

speaking of SWATH, producer hinted actually they're going for a teaser for each character, that might explain the first teaser being all about the Queen:

Hmm, I really want to see the trailer that revolves around Snow White for SWATH. Because the promo pics had Snow White in battle gear yet the trailer just shows her running away and not fighting at all. I don't want to see another film with the guy rescuing the girl, especially in a female-centered film. At least in Mirror Mirror, Snow White is defending herself and fighting.

Also am I the only one who kind of wishes SWATH revolved around the Evil Queen's character instead? I know the trailer revolved around her but Charlize really sold the character as deliciously evil and I barely noticed the other characters. Actually, it would be cool if they made a film about all the villains, like Maleficent, Ursula, Evil Queen.

judging from Kristen's comments she's slaying peeps throughout the movie and punching Hemsworth. all by herself. i think it will be shown in the next few teasers.

I kind of wish they had done that. I know they're planning on making a film that revolves around Maleficient instead of Sleeping Beauty and I would love it if they would do it with Snow White and the Huntsman as well, especially considering Charlize is playing the evil Queen. However, hopefully the different take on Snow White will make her seem less dumb. Although, judging from the trailer...she does still eat the apple.

Now that would be awesome to see. It would be a twist on the classic tale that's for sure. Actually, that kinda reminds me of Wicked in a way, it centers around "the wicked witch" but shows that she's not really evil more like misunderstood. Now imagine if they had done that with SWATH or any classic fairytale... so much more interesting then a similar retelling of the same story (although SWATH does seem a bit different then others).

That would be amazing if they did a Wicked angle to Snow White. I'm more excited for SWATH then Mirror Mirror tbh. It seems more interesting but I'm glad they are completely different in their approaches.

Snow White and the Huntsman - First Trailer


from what I've seen from the trailers, it seems like Mirror, Mirror will be a film for kids, while Snow White and the Huntsman will adress to teenagers and young adults...So I guess there can't be a comparison between the two of them

SO this is why Viggo left SWATH. I did not read the very first draft, read the other one and from my POV it was not that good but who knows..

Quote:
You've had stretches that last over a year where you turn down all your movie offers, and recently, Snow White and the Huntsman went after you to no avail. Is there a reason you're hanging back?

I was offered that and I wanted to do it, and I wanted to do the script I was offered, but the script changed radically. It was no longer the movie I was gonna do, and it bore no resemblance to it, really.
It was already very tight on another movie I was shooting and I would have had to do it back to back, and after it changed completely, it just wasn't what I signed up for. Much as I would have liked to be in a big, interesting movie, the timing just wasn't right. Also, over the past few years, I've had other reasons to step away — not just because of work, but because of family health problems. In fact, the first time David offered me the role of Freud, I couldn't do it because of personal reasons — I just wasn't available to do that or any other movie. But then when Christoph Waltz left the movie quite late in preproduction because he decided to do a big studio movie, David contacted me again and asked me if things had changed, if I could find a window to do it. I think if another director had asked me to do this role, I might have hesitated more, because it just seemed like a big stretch. But I'm certainly glad I did it; I learned a lot and had a lot of fun.

so finally, we're getting the other side of the story. he didn't mention script change before, he just said he couldn't do it cus of his parents being ill.
THR reported Universal declined to give him a hefty paycheck and a part in the boxoffice earning, then Viggo started negotiating for Superman role and in the end lost both of the roles so there's that too.
