The Huntsman: Winter's War

UPDATE: The first trailer is now online. See it below.

New posters for The Huntsman: Winter's War (formerly known simply as The Huntsman) reveal our first look at Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt in character. The upcoming fantasy adventure also confirmed its release date: April 22, 2016. 

Kristen Stewart is missing this time around, but Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron reprise their roles from Snow White and the Huntsman, in which Hemsworth starred as the heroic Eric and Theron portrayed the villianous Queen Ravenna. Here's the official 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.

Whew! As its new title suggests, the sequel sounds like it will focus much more on the battles than on personal relationships, which suits us just fine. Take a look at all four gorgeous new character posters below.

Visual effects veteran Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who worked on the 2012 original, makes his feature directorial debut on The Huntsman: Winter's War. We'll get to see the final results next April. Are you liking the different approach to classic fantasy material that these posters are suggesting?
