Universal Pictures has released a new full-length trailer for “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” the prequel to 2012’s “Snow White & the Huntsman.”
Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron reprise their roles in the film, which examines how the fates of Hutsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined. They’re joined by Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain, Nick Frost, Sam Claflin and Rob Brydon.
Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” opens April 22.
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.
