A title like "The Huntsman: Winter's War" sounds so manly even Ron Swanson might approve, but the first trailer shows this is a movie all about girl power. Literally. Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron play sisters -- sexy wicked sisters -- and they are here to drop a magic mic on the kingdom.
Universal's trailer starts with the question, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the most powerful of them all?" and shows us Emily Blunt's Ice Queen Freya. (Might as well just call her Elsa.) She's a newbie to the "Huntsman" world, along with Jessica Chastain as a warrior named Sara, and they join returnees Charlize Theron as Evil Queen Ravenna, and -- almost an afterthought -- Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman Eric.
Here's the trailer:
And here's the detailed synopsis from Universal:
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."
It sounds like both a prequel and a sequel to the 2012 movie. It hits theaters in April 2016.
