Tagline: "The Snow White Legend Comes Alive." Stop if you've heard that before. But if you're going to remake a fairy tale classic, it's promising to enlist artsy-inventive director Tarsem Singh ("Immortals"), cast Julia Roberts against type as the evil queen and call the seven dwarfs "rebels." It's also a likely breakthrough role for Lily Collins as Snow White (no, we don't count "Abduction"). Our excitement level (scale from 1-10): 5. We don't believe anyone asked for two Snow White movies in one year (the more epic-looking ¿Snow White and the Huntsman,¿ with Kristen Stewart, arrives June 1), but we're more interested in this, the more whimsical of the two. Plus, it's your chance to see a shirtless Armie Hammer hang upside-down in something other than a porn parody of "The Social Network."
