2012 is the year of Snow White. There are currently two different films on their way into the theater based on the classic fairy tale: Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman, due June 1, 2012, and Relativity's Mirror Mirror, which is scheduled to open this weekend. As they've come together, it's been tough keeping up with the separate films and trying to not get them confused, so I'm helping you out. Check out who's who in each movie now before you see them and have the chance to determine which movie is the fairest of them all.
Revenge can be sweet, but it's only too bad Henry, 4, and 7-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus weren't there to see it in person! On today's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Julia Roberts tells the host that she enjoys pranking her three kids, surprising them when they are coming around the corner. She says, "Really, little people can just catch air. They just vault." It seems their mama does, too, because Ellen DeGeneres scared the Mirror Mirror star twice during the taping, and both times Julia jumps right off the ground. Check it out and tell us — do you ever take a lil pleasure from scaring your kids?
Video: Armie Hammer on His "Awkward Man-Child" Role in Mirror Mirror and Working With "Awesome Dude" Johnny Depp
Armie Hammer plays a modern version of Prince Charming in the big-screen adaptation of the classic Snow White fairy tale, Mirror Mirror. He costars with Julia Roberts and Lily Collins in the film, and opened up about working with the talented ladies when we sat down with him during a recent press day. Armie also touched on his next project, Lone Ranger, with Johnny Depp and joked that they might become such good friends they'll start wearing "matching necklaces." Watch now to see what else Armie had to say and make sure to see Mirror Mirror in theaters on March 30.
Lily Collins was the fairest of them all at the Mirror Mirror premiere. (Tied with Julia Roberts, that is.) Not only did Lily's pearly complexion glow, her red lips were also reminiscent of Snow White's favorite forbidden fruit. Kayleen McAdams, the makeup artists who created this look, framed Lily's eyes with a glittering green-grey shadow and topped it all off with a blast of bright color on her lips.

Video: Julia Roberts and Lily Collins Joke They "Don't Get Along" and Talk Lily's "Rival" Kristen Stewart
Lily Collins and Julia Roberts face off as Snow White and the Evil Queen in the big screen fairy-tale adaptation, Mirror Mirror. We sat down with the costars at a recent press day to chat about the movie, and they shared what it was like having to act evil during filming, despite the fact that they really liked each other. Lily also opened up about her friend Kristen Stewart's own upcoming Snow White feature, Snow White and the Huntsman. See what she had to say about them being "rivals" when you watch our interview, and make sure to check out Mirror Mirror in theaters on March 30.
Julia Roberts may play the evil stepmother in the latest Snow White adaptation Mirror Mirror, but her makeup was less than loathsome at the premiere. Makeup artist Genevieve Herr created a subtle daytime eye look that works just as well at the office as it did on the red carpet.
To start, Herr applied Lancôme Liner Design in Indigo Darling (a navy blue hue) to the top lash line. By applying liner before shadow, she achieved a less stark line that goes well with a more relaxed daytime look. Next, Herr used a light-reflecting shadow in the inner corners to create the illusion of bright and open eyes. This shimmery shadow was blended with a darker plum shade that covered Julia's outer lid. (Both shades are from the Color Design Quad in Twirling in Tulle.) Herr finished with mascara on both top and bottom lashes. By mixing a luminescent shadow with a matte darker hue, Herr created a polished eye look that's ideal for daytime — and doesn't take much to update for night.
The Mirror Mirror premiere was an exciting affair at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in LA today. Lily Collins chose a princess-like Dolce & Gabbana dress, which she accessorized with a wand, while Julia Roberts brought a pop of color in a pink top. Julia and Lily, who play the Evil Queen and Snow White in the big screen adaptation of the classic children's book, posed together and with costumed characters on their way inside. Their Prince Charming, Armie Hammer, was unable to attend, though he did make it to the movie's after party. He's been busy filming his next project, The Lone Ranger, with Johnny Depp and we saw first picture of him and Johnny in The Lone Ranger last week. Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka turned out for the event, as did Ali Landry and her daughter Estella. Click into the gallery to see all the red-carpet fun and don't forget to check out the new zoom feature!
Lily Collins and Armie Hammer go head to head as Snow White and Prince Andrew Alcott before falling in love in Mirror Mirror. We've got an exclusive new clip from the film, which shows the duo sword fighting in the snow and sharing a few funny lines as their characters argue over the Evil Queen, who is played by Julia Roberts. Watch now and make sure to check out the hilarious, action-packed movie when it hits theaters on March 30!
Two Snow White adaptations are set to hit the big screen next year, but judging from the trailers for each, the films couldn't be any more different. Kristen Stewart's Snow White and the Huntsman takes a darker approach to the classic fairy tale, focusing on Snow White's fierce battle to escape the evil queen (Charlize Theron), who wants to hunt her down and kill her. Mirror, Mirror uses a more lighthearted approach, complete with bumbling dwarves, an evil queen (Julia Roberts) on a man hunt, and a Snow White (Lily Collins) who looks like she would fit right in the Disney version of the tale with her frilly dresses. Which one is more likely to get you to the theater? Are you more excited about Snow White and the Huntsman or Mirror, Mirror?
Last week we got our first look at Kristen Stewart's badass turn as Snow White in the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman, and now we get to see Lily Collins in what looks like a much lighter take on the classic fairy-tale character in Mirror, Mirror. For starters, Collins's character doesn't don armor, but rather frilly dresses more fitting for balls and enticing the prince. Her posse of seven dwarfs also seem like they will have amusing back and forth with the fair princess, who has been banished to the woods by the evil queen (Julia Roberts).
Roberts is the real star of the trailer, though, having one funny line after another as she slams Snow White and tries to woo the prince (Armie Hammer), whose riches she's after. While Collins looks great as Snow White, I'm more interested in Roberts's portrayal of a money-grubbing, snide queen. See how you feel about her portrayal of a mean girl when you watch the trailer
