“Snow White And The Huntsman” may have done solid box-office, but critically it was not a well-regarded film. The property seemed overly gloomy not just in look but feel, the self-seriousness and dark tangents almost strangling the life out of the story.
The hope is the upcoming sequel “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” will avoid that pitfall, something Chris Hemsworth certainly hopes is the case. He tells Cinema Blend:
“When I saw the first Snow White, I went, ‘Damn, I wish we had more of this, this and this.’ I loved it, but I felt like… [It needed a] sense of fun and adventure. It got very dark and heavy, and so, and there was a lack of love story. We weren’t specific on what that was.”
This time around, there’s a solid love story and a great relationship between Jessica Chastain’s character and mine, which is the heart of the story. But it’s a lot more fun, much more in the vein of say, Willow, or something.”
“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” is currently targeting a late Spring release.
