With only a month left on the clock before the premiere of highly anticipated “The Huntsman: Winter’s War“, Universal Pictures has once again piqued our interest with a new trailer.
“If it’s the Snow White tale you’re looking for, discover the story that came before.”
“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” is the prequel to 2012’s “Snow White & the Huntsman”. Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are returning to reprise their roles as Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna for a tale that explains how their fates are deeply and dangerously intertwined.
They’re joined by Blunt, Jessica Chastain, Nick Frost, Sam Claflin, and Rob Brydon.
The official synopsis of the movie reads:
Long before the evil Queen Ravenna was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (played by Emily Blunt), suffered a heart-breaking 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 and warrior Sara (played by Jessica 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.
The action-packed huntsman-centric trailer not only gives us insight on what to expect from “The Huntsman: Winter’s War”, it’s also dotted with some much needed Chris Hemsworth humour. Watch:
“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” arrives in cinemas on 14th April 2016.
