Much More Than A Fairy Tale: The Huntsman’s Back With Posters And Teaser

“If it’s a fairy tale you’re hoping for, prepare yourself for so much more …”

Here are the brand new posters and teaser trailer for the much anticipated sequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman newly entitled The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman has left behind Kristen Stewart’s Snow White, but apparently not her wicked stepmother?

Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen is still a problem for this fairy tale kingdom, but we’re certainly not complaining! How fab does she look?!

This star studded cast is joined by Jessica Chastain as The Warrior and Emily Blunt as The Ice Queen – both looking fierce and fantastic in their character posters as well as the sneak peak!

This tiny trailer precedes the full one which is due to drop tomorrow!

Rupert Sanders isn’t directing this one – he’s passed the baton to Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who’s making his feature-length debut!

Here’s the official plot summary (… it sounds a lot like Frozen, but maybe with less singing and more swords!):

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.

We certainly can’t wait! The Huntsman: Winter’s War will be out 22nd April 2016!
