Relativity’s Mirror Mirror, the studio’s take on the Snow White tale that stars Lily Collins, Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer, is moving its wide release to March 30, 2012. It had been set for March 16. The move now pits the Tarsem Singh-directed pic against Warner Bros’ Wrath Of The Titans that weekend — and notably comes a week after Lionsgate releases The Hunger Games (it’s probably a safe bet to get to the other side of that much-buzzed-about project). The move does place the family-targeted film closer to spring break and the Easter holiday, and comes on the heels of the studio moving dates for three other films earlier in the week to give its first-quarter slate some breathing room.
Of course, today’s shift still means Mirror is coming out before Universal’s competing Snow White film, the revisionist take Snow White And The Huntsman, which has staked out a June 1 date. But it’s the latest shift in the Snow White wars that has taken place since the two projects were announced, with both studios trying to move their pics ahead of the other on the schedule before Relativity moved its version way up to March.
