Cinema - The Huntsman: Winter’s War (15)
Set as both prequel and sequel to the 2012 gothic fairy tale Snow White and the Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron make a welcome return to the series. Kristen Stewart’s morose Snow White is absent this time around, though, having been emphatically replaced by Emily Blunt’s Ice Queen and Jessica Chastain’s hard-as-nails warrior, Sara. Half the film takes place before the events of the predecessor, with the rest chronicling Queen Ravenna’s resurrection and malevolent reunion with her Ice Queen sis.
