After having moved the release date forward in the duel of the Snow White movies, Relativity has pushed back the opening for "Mirror Mirror" to March 30 from March 16, 2012. This moves it slightly closer to the release date of the other upcoming Snow White rehash, Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman," the "edgier" of the two flicks. "Snow White and the Huntsman" heads to theaters June 1, 2012. ("Mirror Mirror" trailer below.)

Directed by Tarsem Singh, "Mirror Mirror" stars Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, and Armie Hammer, in what promises to be a comedic action adventure for all ages. "Mirror Mirror" seems to be aiming for camp: flashy costumes, bright colors, showy crowd scenes.  Its obvious and unspoken competition, the Rupert Sanders' directed "Snow White and the Huntsman" stars Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, and Kristen Stewart, and pleas to be galled edgy, gritty, darker. However, still images from the "Huntsman" suggest a teen-friendly step above "Mirror Mirror."
