Snow White Through The Ages: Who's The Fairest of Them All?

Lily Collins in Mirror Mirror (2012) Typically, Snow White's story has more dramatic elements in it than it does comedy, but for this 2012 film version, director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) decided it was time for a retelling within the comedy genre. Julia Roberts is surprisingly likeable as the Evil Queen and Lily Collins plays the wide-eyed and furry-browed Snow White, who isn't as much a damsel in distress as she is a girl looking for new adventures and a way to save her deceased father's kingdom from a corrupt leader. It's a charming remake (especially Armie Hammer as the Prince) and a suitable companion to Disney's 1937 version.

Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) The second 2012 Snow White film made more headlines because of a scandalous affair between its director and lead star than it did because of the movie itself. Notably, this version has been the darkest to date, not only in the look of the film, but also the characters -- Charlize Theron's truly Evil Queen and Kristen Stewart's fearless warrior. It appears that the classic tale will be revisited in a rumored part two, though perhaps not with the same cast/director.
