I think it's become quite remarkable that folk tales have become such a staple for bold storytelling. Director Cedric Nicolas Troyan's The Huntsman: Winter's War certainly gives us plenty of that with its edgier approach following up on its Snow White roots and reintroducing us to actor Chris Hemsworth in an origin tale of how he became the titular character before then.

Add Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain into the mix and what we get is a fantastic and edgy action adventure that bends the rules on childrens' folklore for epic storytelling. It ain't exactly R-rated, but Hemsworth fans and those fond of his Mjolnir-wielding ways as Thor will find themselves in good company when the film releases this April. You can now sample it all once more in this week's second trailer.

Discover the story that came before Snow White in The Huntsman: Winter’s War. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles from Snow White and the Huntsman, joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain. 
Theron stars as evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (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 them is Freya’s most elite Huntsman, Eric (Hemsworth). Alongside fellow warrior Sara (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. 
Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in this breathtaking prequel in the legendary saga that is directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. This spring, find out who will win the war between good and evil in the epic action-adventure The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
