Today Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for the Snow White and the Huntsman trailer, and it once again highlights how the ladies–and Chris Hemsworth–dominate. In this prequel to Snow White and The Huntsman, we get a look at how Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) ended up ruling the land. Stunning she may be, but she’s pure evil. You think she was a beast before? Well, in this story of what came before, she kills her sister Freya’s (Emily Blunt) baby. Damn, that’s cold!
Speaking of cold, it kind of turns Freya into the Ice Queen. If she can’t have a baby, she’s going to have an army. One of her soldiers, whom she raised, is Eric the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth), who sets out to defeat Ravenna and destroy her magic mirror. Alongside him rides Sara (Jessica Chastain), another hunter and super kick-ass chick with whom he falls in love.
Yeah, that’s kind of a problem, because the lovely, yet icy-hearted Freya has a bit of a rule about that. Love sucks and no one is allowed to feel it. That’s probably not going to end well for our ridiculously good-looking couple. As this is the story of what happened before Kristen Stewart‘s Snow White hit the scene, we know where it all ends up. I wasn’t a huge fan of that film, but I have to say, there are a lot of female warriors here and no matter how the movie looks, I’m thrilled to see it. Freya rides a polar bear. A polar bear! How can you not love that?
So, what do you guys think of the trailer? Are you itching to cosplay as one of these ladies? I can’t sew a stitch, but I had my Comic-Con plan in place by the time the trailer was over. Now I just have to find someone to make it for me.
