THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER'S WAR
Betrayed by her evil sister Ravenna (Charlize Theron), heartbroken Freya (Emily Blunt) retreats to a northern kingdom to raise an army of huntsmen as her protectors. Gifted with the ability to freeze her enemies in ice, Freya teaches her young soldiers to never fall in love. When Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and fellow warrior Sara defy this rule, the angry queen does whatever she can to stop them. As war between the siblings escalates, Eric and Sara unite with Freya to end Ravenna's wicked reign.
In 2012, Kristen Stewart ruled the box office.
She reprised her role in the Twilight series and starred in Snow White and The Huntsman.
The films combined for a Worldwide Gross of over $1.2 Billion and everything was set:
The sequel got the greenlight and surely, this was the start of her next big franchise.
Well yes, until it wasn't.
They kept the Huntsman and the Evil Queen, but Kristen Stewart?
She's gone, and so is Snow White.
Instead we get to see Emily Blunt (recently great in Sicario) take on Charlize.
That's just fine by me:
Theron and Blunt are top flight talents and can carry an action film:
Did you see Mad Max: Fury Road or Edge Of Tomorrow?
They kick butt with the best of 'em.
The Huntsman is the first feature film for director Cedric Nicolas-Tobin.
However, he is no novice to the industry or this series:
He was nominated for an Oscar for the Visual Effects on Snow White.
Since the effects were the best part of the first film, I'll check it out.
