Fresh from a universally acclaimed turn as Furiosa in the Oscar-winning Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize Theron is back with vengeance as Snow White’s ex-tormentor Queen Ravenna in Universal Pictures’ fantasy adventure The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
In the film, evil Queen Ravenna betrays her good sister Freya (Emily 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 good and evil is Freya’s most elite Huntsman, Eric (Chris Hemsworth). Alongside fellow warrior Sara (Jessica 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.
Opening nationwide today, The Huntsman: Winter’s War is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
