The Huntsman: Winter’s War

Casting one’s mind back, the first Huntsman film garnered international headlines when leading lady Kristen Stewart was found to have cheated on then boyfriend Robert Pattinson with the film’s director Rupert Sanders. Perhaps Stewart felt it was one bite of the poisoned apple and twice shy, for she is not part of the cast in this sequel, although Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin and Nick Frost are.

Showing all over the UK as of Saturday; previews only on Thursday and Friday. See the official website for more.
