‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ Sequel Gets New Title

“The Huntsman” has been given a new, more militant title.

The follow-up to 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” will henceforth be known as “The Huntsman Winter’s War.” The new film hits theaters on April 22, where it faces off against the Warner Bros. comedy “Keanu,” which is written by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

The fantasy adventure ditches original star Kristen Stewart (who made headlines and broke a million tween hearts for getting caught cheating on Robert Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders), but does bring back Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. They are joined by Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan takes over directing duties from Sanders.

Blunt plays Theron’s sister, who flees their kingdom after suffering a betrayal. She gains the ability to freeze any enemy, becoming an ice queen who holes up in a wintery palace. Hemsworth and Chastain play her trusted lieutenants. But they run afoul of their queen when they refuse to follow orders and harden their hearts to love. The whole thing sounds like “Frozen” with battle scenes.

The first “Huntsman” movie was a moderate success, grossing $396.6 million on a $170 million production budget.
