Based on the look of his last movie, the swords-and-sandals epic Immortals, you would think that the Snow White adaptation directed by Tarsem Singh would be the gritty, militant Snow White and the Huntsman and not Mirror Mirror, with its ethereal landscapes populated by whimsical characters with cotton candy hair. But proof that Singh is the man behind the fairy tale look of Mirror Mirror can be found in a collection of new images released by Relativity Media that includes several high-resolution stills from the movie and two behind-the-scenes shots of Singh offering direction to a beetle carapace–attired Nathan Lane and six of the seven dwarves that try to protect Snow White (Lily Collins) from the Evil Queen (Julia Roberts) who covets her youth, beauty, and throne. see the new images >> Posted 02.18.12 by BrentJS
We wouldn't be the first to admit that the first trailer for Relativity Media's Mirror Mirror was a little disappointing. More of a comedic adventure than its live-action Snow White rival, Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman, the jokes in Mirror Mirror's trailer seemed mostly stale and uninspired and the movie lacked the visual feast usually associated with director Tarsem Singh (Immortals).
After releasing a sneak peak featurette only days ago (and pushing the release date back two weeks), Relativity is looking to improve on its previous effort with a new international trailer, which focuses more on the adventure aspect of the movie as Snow White (Lily Collins) learns some fighting techniques from the seven dwarves (Mark Povinelli, Jordan Prentice, Danny Woodburn, Martin Klebba, Sebastian Saraceno, Ronald Lee Clark, and Joey Gnoffo) in order to battle the Evil Queen (Julia Roberts). watch the trailer >> Posted 01.29.12 by Ryan
Writer-director Ryan Murphy has had a pretty good run of success — having created the TV shows Nip/Tuck, American Horror Story and Glee, and his last movie, Eat, Pray, Love, made a solid $204 million worldwide — so its no surprise that actors are lining up to work with him on his next movie project: an adaptation of the Tony Award-winning play The Normal Heart.
THR reports that Julia Roberts (who worked with Murphy on Eat, Pray, Love), Alec Baldwin (It's Complicated, 30 Rock), Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), and Matt Bomer (USA's White Collar, In Time) are all joining actor Mark Ruffalo (The Kids Are All Right) in the drama, based on Larry Kramer's 1985 autobiographical play about the rise of the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York’s gay community in the 1980s. Kramer wrote the screenplay for the movie version as well. more about Normal Heart >> Posted 01.23.12 by Ryan
The battle of the Snow Whites continues to rage on. Two new posters were released for the Tarsem Singh-directed Mirror Mirror and they could not be more different from the posters that have been released for the rival Snow White and the Huntsman. From the posters and trailers, these two movies look about as similar as 28 Days and 28 Days Later.
While the posters for Snow White and the Huntsman are dark and dramatic, these posters for Mirror Mirror are light and pretty. Evil Queen Julia Roberts gives a cold and conniving, side-long look at Lily Collin's Snow White in one poster, and she's described as "One Bad Apple" in the other, but she certainly doesn't look like she's about to consume Snow's heart as part of her beauty regimen. Even though Robert's character isn't the most evil queen on the block, it turns out she almost didn't do the movie. More on what convinced Roberts to take on the role Posted 12.23.11 by Mandy
Less than two weeks after finally choosing the name Mirror, Mirror, the former Untitled Snow White Project has its first trailer.
One of two Snow White movies currently in production, Relativity Media's Mirror, Mirror won a scheduling battle with Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman back in May and will be the first Snow White movie to reach theaters. Starring Lily Collins as Snow White and Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen, Mirror, Mirror has a more comedic and family-oriented tone than the darker and more action-driven Snow White and the Huntsman (with Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron filling the Snow White and Evil Queen roles), but that didn't stop Mirror director Tarsem Singh (Immortals) from declaring in June that there can be only one Snow White movie. "Fortunately or unfortunately, there really, truly is only room for the first one of these," Singh said at the time. "Two Snow White movies do not exist in this market."
With the release of Snow White and the Huntsman's first trailer last week, there can finally be some comparison between the two and, if you like your Snow White movie filled with jokes like "Snow White? Snow way!", then it's likely you'll agree with Singh. watch the trailer >> Posted 11.15.11 by Ryan
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who has the craziest dress of them all?
With a peach dress so large and shiny, even tall Miss Roberts looks teeny tiny.
Even though we still don't know whether the movie will be called "Something Something Snow White" or "Snow White and the Something Something", there are some new pics for next year's family friendly fairy tale version of Snow White. (These shots are clearly nothing like last week's tough and gritty spy pics for Snow White and the Huntsman.) With the pics released today by EW it's obvious that Tarsem Singh's story takes place in an ornately decorated, magical world where, rather than wearing armor, people wear huge and elaborate dresses that make walking nearly impossible.

2011 was going to be the "year of Ryan Reynolds" with the actor appearing in the superhero adaptation of Green Lantern and the r-rated body-switching comedy The Change-up. Instead of Reynolds being catapulted into super-stardom, however, both movies flopped.
Reynolds will get his third chance this year at winning over an audience with the family drama Fireflies in the Garden, which casts Reynolds as the novelist son of kind mother Julia Roberts and cruel father Willem Dafoe. While the cast is certainly impressive, there's only one reason the movie might not be Reynolds' box office redemption: it was shot three years ago and is being self-distributed by the movie's producers. what happened? >> Posted 08.29.11 by Ryan

YouTube teen sensation Rebecca Black says she was forced to drop out of school after relentless bullying and teasing about her hit song "Friday." The song also lead to death threats against the 14-year-old singer, with some claiming it was the worst song ever. Black may be getting the last laugh as her latest single "My Moment" has topped 22 million streams on YouTube.
No surprise here but Casey Anthony is the most hated person in America, according to a new poll, with 94% of respondents disliking her, followed by former reality TV star Spencer Pratt, "Octomom" Nadya Suleman, O.J. Simpson, and John Gosselin rounding out the top five.
The London riots have forced the Kristin Stewart drama Snow White and the Huntsman to halt production, which could give the edge to Julia Roberts' dueling, untitled Snow White project, set for a March 16, 2012 release.
TV Guide has released its list of the highest-paid news anchors and Matt Lauer tops the list at $17 million/year. Poor Scott Pelley, host of the bottom-rated CBS Evening News, earns just $5 million/year.

There can be only one. Snow White movie, that is.
2012 will see the release of not one but two live-action Snow White movies, Universal Studios' Snow White and the Huntsman and Relativity Media's Untitled Snow White Project (formerly titled The Brothers Grimm: Snow White). While Snow White and the Huntsman is a more serious, action–oriented movie, the Untitled Snow White will see The Cell's Tarsem Singh direct an adventure comedy with Lily Collins (Priest) cast as Snow White and Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen.

Academy Award–winning actor Tom Hanks hadn't written and directed a movie since 1996's That Thing You Do!, but the upcoming comedy Larry Crowne sees Hanks directing himself as the title character from a script he co-wrote with Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). While only his second directorial effort, Hanks told BANG Showbiz at the London Premiere that he wasn't nervous about directing the movie.

I was worried about less things because my powers of communication, my skills of talking to all the department heads were a little bit better than last time around. It's such a personal thing that I can't really delineate between the work and the social aspect of making the movie. We had a great time, we were around great people.
