New ‘Huntsman: Winter’s War’ Trailer Released

Emily Blunt And Charlize Theron

Who would have thought the fantastical world of Snow White would turn so dark? Well, since Kristen Stewart didn’t want to come back as Snow White, Universal has made the prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, moving the action back in time to show the origins of the story.

Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth return to their roles as the Evil Queen Ravenna and The Huntsman Eric, joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain as the Ice Queen Freya and Warrior Sara.

Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the epic action-adventure The Huntsman: Winter’s War opens on April 22nd, and co-stars Nick Frost, Sam Claflin, and Rob Brydon. I wonder how they got such a big cast, but honestly, not my interest in this. Watch below.

Theron stars as evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (Blunt) with an unforgivable act, freezing Freya’s heart to love and unleashing in her an icy power she never knew she possessed. Retreating to a kingdom far to the north, Freya raises an army of Huntsmen as her protectors, with the only rule that no two of them should ever fall in love.

As a war for domination escalates between the two queens, the hero standing between them is Freya’s most elite Huntsman, Eric (Hemsworth). Alongside fellow warrior Sara (Chastain)—the only woman who has ever captured his heart—Eric must help Freya vanquish her sister…or Ravenna’s wickedness will rule for eternity.
