The Hunger Games still on top at the domestic box office, outdistancing new releases American Reunion and Titanic 3D. The Gary Ross-adapted film grossed $33.5 million, bringing its North American total to nearly $303 million sinces its March 23 opening.
The Hunger Games has grossed $251 million domestically in just 10 days, leaving new releases Clash of the Titans and Mirror Mirror in its wake.
With Mirror Mirror, his lighthearted reimagining of the Snow White tale, director Tarsem Singh is in his element, reveling in jaw-dropping set pieces and over-the-top costume designs while eliciting entertaining performances from Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer and breakout star Lily Collins.
Comparing the trailers for next year’s competing Snow White movies – Snow White and The Huntsman and Mirror Mirror, for those who haven’t been paying attention (and who could blame you?) – feels like a lesson in contrasting the two leading schools of thought in mainstream fantasy storytelling these days. But which one is likely to have more sticking power with the public?
Relativity Media’s long-untitled Snow White project is now named Mirror, Mirror. Directed by Tarsem Singh, the film stars Lily Collins, Armie Hammer, Julia Roberts and Nathan Lane.
