I don't know how many of you saw "Snow White and The Huntsman" back in 2012. If you were lucky enough to skip it, I will envy you. I think I might be a little too hard on myself, I have to admit it wasn't has horrible as the "Mirror, Mirror" movie that came out a few months before in the exact same year. But it still wasn't anything special. Its something I am having a hard time remembering because of how uneventful it was as a movie. It certainly didn't ring SEQUEL! after its release, and I hardly hear anybody talking about it. Well, scratch that, I hear nobody talking about it ever. I am not going to look up how much it grossed at the box office because I know I don't have to, is this a movie where a sequel was truly needed or better yet, wanted?
I can't speak for everyone, but I think the answer is no. But Hollywood has decided to make another mint factory out of an unneeded franchise. "The Huntsman: Winter's War" is set for release on April 22nd, 2016. It will see Chris Hemsworth reprise his role as The Huntsman and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen. Here is a synopsis of the movie from Hitfix.com
Great. So since "Frozen" made Disney a lot of money we have to see The Snow Queen show up under a different pseudonym in a sequel nobody needed? I sure do love how Hollywood works! I guess Hollywood isn't going to let "Frozen" go any time soon. I know I shouldn't prejudge too much, but I am really being serious here. Did anybody want or need this sequel? Is anybody excited for this?
We should be getting a trailer soon, so this isn't the last time we will discuss this upcoming movie.
