I talked yesterday about my love of fantasy, and how it’s a genre that is either hit or miss, when EOne released the first trailer for the awful looking, Gods Of Egypt. Today, Universal Pictures has restored my faith and proven that it can actually be done right, with the release of the first official trailer for The Huntsman Winter’s War.
See, this is how you do epic fantasy. Visually, this film looks stunning and the cast is incredible. I mean, how can you not be excited for a film that has Chris Hemsworth, Emily Blunt, Charlize Theron and Jessica Chastain as your main cast? Throw in magic, mystery, trolls, witches and dwarves and I’m all in.
I will admit that I liked Snow White And The Huntsman more than most, but felt that Stewart was completely miscast as the heroine. Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman was the heart of the film and I am glad that we’re getting a chance to see him as the main character. Of course, it helps that he’s easy on the eyes! The marketing blitz for the film has just begun, and I’ve got to say, for a film that I didn’t even realize was being released next year, it is rapidly rising on my must see list. Every bit that’s revealed makes me more and more excited to check it out. Maybe there’s hope for fantasy yet.
The Huntsman Winter’s War is set for release on April 22, 2016.
