Mirror Mirror has released a new batch of on-set images featuring what looks like the first clinch between Lily Collins’ Snow White and Armie Hammer’s dashing Prince Andrew.
The image in question shows Snow White looking rather dishevelled as she swoons in the arms of the prince. Perhaps she’s just been doing a spot of brawling? She has been trained in combat, after all…
Elsewhere, there’s a look at Julia Roberts’ wicked Queen being levered into her corset, and Court Attendant Nathan Lane sporting what look like a pair of cockroach antennae. Seeing as the Queen turns him into one in the trailer, we’d say that’s a safe conclusion to draw.
We’ve been fairly down on Mirror Mirror in the past and there’s still a technicolour cartoonishness about these new images that does little to suggest this will be anything more than a camp kids movie.
We’d love to be proved wrong, but we can’t help feeling as though Tarsem Singh has painted his fairytale saga in the very broadest of brushstrokes. We’ll find out for sure when the film opens here on 2 April 2012.
