A New Trailer For 'The Huntsman: Winter's War' Has Arrived


By Matt O'Bryant 

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for their upcoming sequel The Huntsman: Winter's War. This new trailer is the best one yet for the film and is the first one that kind of explains that the film is going to take place both before and after the original film Snow White & The Huntsman.

This seems kind of cool, but I'm really still wondering if there is any kind of an audience for this film. The first one had the benefit of starring Kristen Stewart as Snow White at the height of her powers. She was a big draw for her fans at that time. Without her in the film it will be interesting to see how this one plays out. 

Check out the trailer below and lets us know in the comments what your thoughts are about this film. 

Here's the official synopsis:

 "The fantastical world of Snow White and the Huntsman expands to reveal how the fates of The Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined.  Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, an epic action-adventure in which they are joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, as well as director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan.  Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in a breathtaking new tale nested in the legendary saga.

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 hits theaters on April 22nd.
