In a leapfrog of release dates, Mirror, Mirror and The Huntsman have been battling for the spotlight as first Snow White picture of the year. These attempts to vie for the position of originator are soon to be proven futile by AIRPLANE’s Sneak Preview event for its show Mirror, Mirror.
Beginning on March 10th, an array of work (paintings, sculptures, movies and beyond) will be released as the show builds to its climax on the 30th of March(simultaneously with Relativity Media’s Julia Roberts flick of the same name). By the time of its March 30th event, several up and coming movies will be “scooped” by the independent art originals of the same title released throughout the show.
Movies such as The Dark Night Rises, Django Unchained, Men in Black III, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Lincoln!, The Huntsman and others will be forced to relinquish their anticipated status as first movie in 2012. Inventions are often simultaneous and inevitable products of their time (Alexander Graham Bell patented the telephone hours before Elisha Gray). This show will be no different. What then, you might ask is the point of originality? To quote LA Times’ Nicole Sperring, “There is no guarantee that going first will result in a better performance at the box office, but more often than not, it seems to pay off.”
