If it's the Snow White tale you’re looking for, discover the story that came before… Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles in the epic action-adventure The Huntsman: Winter's War, joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain. Theron stars as evil Queen Ravenna, who betrays her good sister Freya (Blunt) with an unforgiveable act, freezing Freya's heart to love and unleashing in her an icy power she never knew she possessed. As war escalates between the two queens, Eric the Huntsman (Hemsworth), and his forbidden lover, Sara (Chastain), must help Freya vanquish her sister… or Ravenna’s wickedness will rule for eternity.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Huntsman: Winter's War is visually arresting and boasts a stellar cast, but neither are enough to recommend this entirely unnecessary sequel.

Messy, violent Snow White sequel wastes its great actors.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Huntsman: Winter's War is both a prequel and sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, following the origin story of how Eric (Chris Hemsworth) became a huntsman. Like its predecessor, the film is violent and dark, despite the fairytale references and themes. Kids may think it's going to be like the hit TV show Once Upon a Time, but the movie has intense scenes like an infant's death, startling betrayals, and many deaths (though only a few are shown up close). Both queens (played by Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron) kill, albeit in different ways, and there are scary, horned, ape-like goblins that pursue and nearly kill the protagonists. While there's little in the way of language or drinking, there are two sensuous-but-not-graphic love scenes -- expect to see kissing and bare shoulders/backs.
