The Huntsman: Winter’s War Teaser Trailer
Hemsworth battles Theron and Blunt in the first trailer for the Universal’s epic fantasy sequel The Huntsman: Winter’s War. View trailer below.
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.
To me, Snow White and the Huntsman was an okay feature. While the story was a little nonsensical and Kristen Stewart was a complete miscast as the Snow White (She’s most definitely was not the fairest of them all), I did like all the visual effects for the movie and how the movie turned the classic fairy tale story into a dark and epic fantasy adventure. The Huntsman: Winter’s War looks to be an adequate sequel / follow-up that feels the same as its first installment. Can it rise above its predecessor? I hope so. For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War hits theaters next spring on April 22nd, 2016
