So far these trailers for The Huntsman: Winter’s War have done a terrible job explaining what’s actually going on in the film and where everything is set in relation to Snow White and the Huntsman. The only reason I even know this is both a prequel and a sequel is because I’ve read the film’s synopsis, and that’s not something a lot of people are willing to do. So you end up with what looks like a confusing mess that might as well be its own thing with little to no relation to Snow White. Having The Jungle Book open a week before it won’t help either, so I really do smell a new box office flop for Chris Hemsworth. That’s sad because I like the guy, he’s a good actor and I think he deserves a lot more success than he’s getting outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“As two evil sisters prepare to conquer the land; two renegades – Eric the Huntsman – who previously aided Snow White in defeating Ravenna, and his forbidden lover, Sara set out to stop them.”
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan directed while Evan Spiliotopoulos and Craig Mazin wrote the film. Besides Chris Hemsworth, also starring in this are Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Nick Frost and more.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War opens April 4th in the UK and April 22nd in the US.
