HOLLYWOOD, Calif., March 22, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Universal Pictures released a new trailer for the upcoming film “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” the prequel to 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
In the new film, Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles from “Snow White and the Huntsman,” and are joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain.
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.
Producer Joe Roth (“Maleficent,” “Alice in Wonderland”) once again leads the team in this breathtaking prequel in the legendary saga that is directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan.
“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” opens in theaters April 22 and is rated PG-13.
