The Huntsman: Winter's War Feature Trailer (2016)
Feature Trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War.
Discover the story that came before Snow White in The Huntsman: Winter’s War. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar winner Charlize Theron return to their roles from Snow White and the Huntsman, joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain.
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.
Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in this breathtaking prequel in the legendary saga that is directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. This spring, find out who will win the war between good and evil in the epic action-adventure The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
The first film Snow White and the Huntsman did just modestly well. With a budget of $170,000,000 it only made just over $150,000,000 domestically (did not even break even). Luckily the film did even better overseas making over $241,000,000 for a total of almost $397,000,000 at the box office. Universal Pictures must be hoping that the second film can at least break even with domestic sales.
And, interesting enough they have chosen Cedric Nicolas-Troyan as the Director for the film even though he has zero experience at the helm of a feature film. He was although the Second Unit Director for the first film Snow White and the Huntsman and Maleficent.
We get to see more action in this Feature Trailer versus the first Trailer along with Ravenna's superior powers. Plus the trailer nicely sets up the back story between the two sisters and the jealous rage that tears them apart. You cannot deny the similarities between Freya and Elsa from the wildly popular Disney film Frozen. Just take a look at both of their ice fortresses:
All in all the trailer was spot on in introducing the story, characters and action to get viewers hopefully excited about the second installment.
