‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’ Ain’t Your Average Fairytale
The first teaser trailer released for The Huntsman: Winter’s War lets viewers know that if they’re expecting an average, run-of-the-mill fairytale, then they’ll end up leaving with more than they bargained for.
The follow-up to Snow White and The Huntsman stars Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain and focuses on the Evil Queen from the first film as she, this time joined by her sister, continues her dark ways.
“If it’s a fairytale you’re hoping for, prepare yourself for so much more,” crows Ravenna (Theron) in the teaser. The queen was defeated in the 2012 film, but will be resurrected by her sister, the Ice Queen (Blunt), in the new movie. The film’s first full length trailer will be released tomorrow.
Watch the teaser trailer, view the two new posters and read more about the The Huntsman, per Universal, 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.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War will premiere in theaters April 22, 2016.
