In Hollywood’s continued efforts to mine every property ever for a movie franchise, kid’s toys (and the 30-minute commercials called cartoons that were created in the 1980’s to sell them) became another source of success following Michael Bay’s Transformers. Since then we’ve seen G.I. Joe see some reasonable success and Jem and the Holograms fail miserably. Now, My Little Pony, which has already seen an amazing level of success back on TV, is working it’s way to the big screen as well. And it seems they just added a major name to the voice cast: Emily Blunt. Emily Blunt joins Kristin Chenoweth, Tara Strong, and others to the cast of the planned animated film. While the movie is coming from much of the same team that created the TV series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, »

Arguably one of the more surprising prequels to see the light of day, Universal has today peeled back the curtain on a new trailer for The Huntsman Winter’s War.
Whisking moviegoers back to the Kingdom of Tabor, Cedric Nicolas-Troyan’s fantastical offshoot takes place long before the events of Rupert Sanders’ Snow White, largely revolving around the testing relationship between Emily Blunt’s conflicted Ice Queen Freya and Queen Ravenna, played with maleficent glee once again by Charlize Theron.
Betrayed by her sibling, today’s CG-laden sizzle reel introduces Blunt’s character as a powerful and mercurial ruler with ice powers. Fleeing to a kingdom of isolation – stop us if you’ve heard this before – Winter’s War heralds a sisterly squabble of epic proportions, with Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and Sara (Jessica Chastain) caught up somewhere in between.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War won’t be for everyone. Nothing ever is, really. But if you are even vaguely in this movie’s demographic, you’ll be smiling like Maleficent after cursing the infant Aurora by the end of this new trailer. And just who is the demographic for Winter’s War? Anyone who’s been waiting patiently for an adult version of Frozen. Anyone who’s wanted a high fantasy film with a majority of the main roles played by women. Anyone who’s wished for a complex story of motherhood, betrayal, and magic. Are you that demographic? I know I am. Yes, Snow White and the Huntsman was a hot, rambling mess. But the best part of that entire film was Charlize Theron and her scenery-chewing. She milked every moment she was on screen as the vain and insecure Queen. And now with Emily Blunt to play off of in the prequel? »

She faces off with her sister Ravenna, the Evil Queen played by Charlize Theron in the new film. Reprising her role from Snow White and the Huntsman, she has even tougher competition not just to be the fairest of them all, but the fiercest queen of them all.
The film stars Chris Hemsworth, who gets to tell his back story as the Huntsman.This prequel is staying far away from Snow White, as the trailer reminds us that all of this happened before she came into the picture. The competition between Blunt and Theron promises an exciting time at the movies.
Jessica Chastain also stars in the film, and she looks to be the only woman who isn't evil in the film. We're excited to see who will win this battle. »

Queen Ravenna and Eric the Huntsman return in the new trailer for “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” which previews a fiery sister rivalry between Ravenna and her ice queen sister Freya.
Though the narration at the onset of the trailer declares the film a prequel to “Snow White and the Huntsman” (2012), the fantasy epic will also cover events that occur after the conclusion of the first film, in which Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth starred alongside Kristen Stewart.
The new footage reveals the origin of the ongoing feud between the sisters, which was sparked by Ravenna’s (Theron) betrayal of sister Freya (Emily Blunt), causing her to flee their kingdom. Once escaped, Freya retreats to an ice palace where she spends years building up an army to defeat Ravenna. Aiding in Freya’s quest for domination is Eric the Huntsman (Hemsworth), her most elite warrior, who’s pining for the »

"What are you gunna do - be the hero who defeats the Mirror, and saves the entire kingdom?" Universal has debuted the second official trailer for The Huntsman Winter's War, the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman from 2012. This live-action fantasy fairy tale gone mad stars Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman, a man stuck in the middle of a battle between a Queen and her sister Freya, played by Emily Blunt. This big budget studio sequel also stars Jessica Chastain as Sara, Charlize Theron as Ravenna, Sam Claflin as William, plus Colin Morgan, Sophie Cookson, Nick Frost and many others. This looks as bland as the first trailer (or the first film for that matter), but that's just me. "Are you ready, Huntsman?"

Actor Josh Brolin is nothing if not candid. On the recent Nerdist podcast, the 47-year-old Brolin suggested he’s old enough to not really give a shit anymore about what people think. In recent interviews, he’s been pretty frank about how the Coen Brothers are a little peculiar (affectionately calling them “socially inept”) and don’t care for small talk, and on the aforementioned podcast, he dogged the comic book/ western film in which he starred, “Jonah Hex,” revealing most of the film was quickly reshot and mangled in the process.

Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton & More Brolin admitted he initially thought “Sicario,” the critically acclaimed crime thriller from Denis Villeneuve in which he stars with Emily Blunt, missed the mark. He recently elucidated his thoughts about the film on the Dp/30 interview series. “I was pleasantly surprised, »

In part because of the shenanigans of Snow White and the Huntsman.s star Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders, the decision was made to create a prequel rather than sequel to the 2012 fantasy adventure. Stewart.s departure was corrected with the acquisition of Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, who join the returning Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth for The Huntsman: Winter.s War. And the full trailer suggests that was a pretty good decision. You can take a gander at it, and decided for yourself, by clicking below. I know, I know: the song choice for The Huntsman: Winter's War's trailer is utterly appalling, and only hinders rather than improving upon the footage because of its cheesy, on-the-nose lyrics and heavy attempt at creating a serious tone and mood. But, looking beyond this kamikaze assault on the ears, there.s actually enough in the trailer to suggest The Huntsman: »
I know I'm not the first one to say that the film Snow White And The Huntsman was something of a disappointment. While I wouldn't call the film "bad," I would say that it was the worst kind of mediocrity, in that it was too good to make fun off, but not good enough to actually enjoy. All in all, the story and characters were just boring. Before long, I found myself looking at my watch so I could get on with my day.
Needless to say, when I learned there would be a sequel, I wasn't too thrilled. Then the first trailer came along and impressed me. It didn't necessarily convince me that it would be "good," but entertaining? There was a possibility there. And apparently the first trailer impressed me so much that when I found out about a new trailer released, I eagerly went consumed it quickly. »

Post-"Fury Road," Charlize Theron returns with Chris Hemsworth and some sparkling new additions in the prequel to "Snow White and The Huntsman." With Kristen Stewart's Snow White gone, in packaging the follow-up Universal chief Donna Langley cobbled together the strongest remaining elements for "The Huntsman: Winter's War" (April 22, 2016). Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the Oscar-nominated VFX master behind the first film, this "epic-adventure" brings back the huntsman Eric (Hemsworth) and evil Queen Ravenna (Theron), who are joined by an ice queen and a warrior huntsman played by two strong actresses with action movie bonafides, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, respectively. The plot was clearly influenced by the success of "The Hunger Games" (see Chastain's braids, leather jerkin and bow and arrow), Disney's "Frozen" as well as producer Joe Roth's "Maleficent" and "Alice in Wonderland."

The most important thing to understand about the new The Huntsman: Winter’s War trailer is that there are at least two shots where Emily Blunt, playing a literal ice queen named Freya, rides a polar bear.
