the huntsman winter's war clips

The most important thing about The Huntsman: Winter’s War is that there is at least one scene where Emily Blunt rides a polar bear. This was true when the first trailer arrived last month and it continued to be true when the second trailer arrived last week. This film seems to offer its fair share of pleasures for all kinds of people – the astonishingly handsome Chris Hemsworth strutting about with just enough chest exposed, the lovely Jessica Chastain kicking all kinds of ass in black leather, the incredible Charlize Theron vomiting black goo all over the place – but I’m buying a ticket because Emily Blunt is a literal ice queen who rides a fantasy polar bear. How did this movie gain access to the darkest corners of my brain?

Anyway, a batch of new The Huntsman: Winter’s War clips have arrived and one of them is entirely about Emily Blunt and her polar bear. Be still, my pounding heart.

The Huntsman trailer

The full trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War debuts next week, but in the meantime, Universal has released a teaser for the trailer. The sequel/spinoff features an excellent cast, which is why, after the underwhelming first film, Snow White and the Huntsman, this might actually be worth seeing.

After the jump, watch a whopping 15 seconds from The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

UPDATE: Shortly after we shared the first The Huntsman teaser, the first full-length The Huntsman trailer went up. Watch it below.

Huntsman director

It’s been an up and down news cycle for The Huntsman, which will be Universal’s prequel to the 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman. First there was the news that it would leave out Snow White, but then came the announcement that Frank Darabont would write and direct. In a surprise move, however, Darabont pulled out of directing last week, thanks to “creative differences.” Now Universal has signed Cedric Nicolas-Troyan — the second-unit director and visual effects supervisor on the original film — to direct The Huntsman.

Darabont Won't Direct The Huntsman

We hope you weren’t too excited about the idea of Frank Darabont directing the Snow White and the Huntsman prequel, because that is no longer happening. The movie is happening, just not with Darabont as part of the package. The director dropped out of the endeavor this week. So now there’s The Huntsman, as the movie is called, with Chris Hemsworth set to return, but no Snow White (originally played by Kristen Stewart). But despite the fact that Darabont won’t direct The Huntsman there is good news, as a new lady villain is in the wings, with Emily Blunt in talks to play her. Read More »
