Universal Pictures has just released a new trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, revealing the dark, twisted, and long history between Huntsman Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). Check it out below:
This origin story finds the Huntsman and fellow warrior Sara (Jessica Chastain) under the employment of Freya (Emily Blunt), who is also the sister of the Evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). But after Freya uses a magic mirror to resurrect her defeated sibling, the wicked pair unleash hell on earth, leaving it up to Eric and Sara to save the enchanted land from the forces of darkness.
Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the film features a fine cast of Hollywood’s biggest stars including Crimson Peak‘s Chastain, who looks in top form as a skilled warrior. Emily Blunt is also entering new territory as the evil Queen Freya, and when paired with the prowess of Theron, is a truly unstoppable force. Reprising his role from Snow White and the Huntsman is Chris Hemsworth, who looks right at home in this action-fantasy-adventure.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War will be released on April 7 in Australia and New Zealand, and April 22 in the US.
