THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER'S WAR Is No Kids' Fairy Tale. Watch The Trailer!
Monday's character posters for Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's The Huntsman: Winter's War, were all the hint we needed in learning just how this latest derivative take on childhood folklore would look, aside from its trailer tease on Tuesday. Today, we get a full on trailer and not for nothing either with sweeping views of a kingdom rife with luster and beauty, suddenly overcome by looming darkness and evil by two evil sisters, and with Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain as our only hope for salvation; considering how action-packed and electrifying it looks, I'd say I'm pretty sold on this.
The fantastical world of Snow White and the Huntsman expands to reveal how the fates of The Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles in The Huntsman Winter’s War, an epic action-adventure in which they are joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, as well as director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in a breathtaking new tale nested in the legendary saga.
Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.
When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.
Watch the promising new trailer below ahead of the film's April 22 release next year!
