Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for their upcoming action-adventure film The Huntsman: Winter's War, which is a follow-up film to 2012's Snow White & The Huntsman.
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.
Check it out the trailer in the video below.
Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan and based on a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos and Craig Mazin.
The Huntsman: Winter's War will land in theaters April 22, 2016.
