The "war" of "The Huntsman: Winter's War" is clear in this action-packed exclusive clip from the film, which comes out April 22. There's only one line in the 45-second scene, from Emily Blunt's Freya, who is in full battle mode against her own sister, Queen Ravenna, played by Charlize Theron. You remember her, right? "Winter's War" hits theaters four years after "Snow White and the Huntsman," but it tells the story that came before that Kristen Stewart movie, bringing back Theron's Ravenna and also the Huntsman himself, played by Chris Hemsworth.
The Huntsman is featured in this clip, along with Jessica Chastain, who plays Sara, a fellow warrior who seems like a cross between Katniss Everdeen of "The Hunger Games" and Tauriel from "The Hobbit." As you can see in the video, which features a cool personal intro from Chastain and Hemsworth, Ravenna is a tough adversary to take down, even with multiple opponents.
Here's the synopsis from Universal:
"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."
Considering this story came before "Snow White," we know Ravenna doesn't get vanquished, or at least stay vanquished. She's like the Terminator, she just keeps coming back!
"The Huntsman: Winter's War" arrives in theaters on April 22.
