She was by no means horrible, but arguably Kristen Stewart was the worst thing about Snow White and The Huntsman. That whole sleeping with the director scandal also didn’t help matters either. Whatever the official reason was, Stewart wasn’t recruited for the prequel SLASH spin-off.
Instead two other women were courted to appear alongside returning players Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt join the franchise as The Warrior and The Ice Queen respectively. I can’t wait to see Blunt and Theron play evil sisters. This should be epic.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War invades theaters on April 22, 2016. Check out the character posters below, before the official trailer debuts tomorrow.
The Huntsman Movie Synopsis
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.
