Has there ever been a hotter cast? ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’ trailer is here and it’s seriously intense.
“Mirror, Mirror on the wall…” Who would have thought that would turn so dark? In The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) betrays her sister Freya (Emily Blunt), who heads to the north to raise an army of Huntsmen. There is one rule: none of them can fall in love. However, it’s no surprising that Eric (Chris Hemsworth) does end up falling — for Sara (Jessica Chastain).
Honestly, we loved Snow White & the Huntsman, and this looks like a more intense, and (somehow) a more attractive cast than the first one! However, this is actually, as it seems, a prequel. Here’s the movie’s full description, from Universal:
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.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who is famous for working on Maleficent, will be directing this one — and we cannot wait! While Kristen Stewart is not in the prequel, we do have a lot of great new members that we’re sure we’ll be obsessed with. Are you?
See the movie in theaters April 22, 2016!
