The latest trailer for Universal Pictures’ The Huntsman: Winter’s War reveals more of the backstory and conflict between Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) and her sister Freya (Emily Blunt). The prequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman was directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan and also stars Chris Hemsworth, Nick Frost, Sam Claflin, Rob Brydon, and Jessica Chastain. The Huntsman: Winter’s War opens in theaters on April 22, 2016.
The Plot: Charlize 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.
