Here is a "first look" at Mirror Mirror, the Snow White film with Julia Roberts and Lily Collins.
It's really more of a "on the set of" set of photos as most of the photos include crew and peeks at the rigging holding the scenery. I love seeing all this, of course, but these particular shots don't give you any more of an idea of the movie than the original trailer did. One thing is for certain though: no matter what's going on with the plot (or the jokes) the visuals promise to be stunning. The design work and cinematography all show a strong and cohesive stylistic signature (as was expected of director Tarsem Singh) and I actually want to see the "making of" featurettes more than the movie itself.

From The Hollywood Reporter:
Tarsem Singh (Immortals) hopped into the director's chair for the 14-week shoot when Ratner stepped aside, turning the movie into an "all stage" production. Singh crafted the movie's many environments exclusively on soundstages with the help of digital effects and elaborate costumes from Oscar winner Eiko Ishioka (Bram Stoker's Dracula). The result, producers hope, is a whimsical family film with modern sensibility.
"It's an animated movie come to life," says Goldmann. "You can only do that with the greenscreen effect."

Mirror Mirror now has a release date of March 16th, 2012, instead of June 29th.
