As both a prequel and sequel of Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), the new film is derived from characters based on the fairy tale Snow White by the Brothers Grimm.

The film spans a seven-year time frame, which skips the well-known part of the original story about conflicts between Snow White and Queen Revenna that has already been covered in the 2012 film.

In the latest movie, Revenna (played by Charlize Theron) and her sister (played by Emily Blunt) prepare to conquer the territory, as two renegades, Eric the Huntsman (Hemsworth), and his lover, Sara (Chastain), set out to stop their plan.

Chastain, 39, is renowned for her performances in heavy-duty films.

Her performance in Zero Dark Thirty (2013) won her a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination.

Her other major works include Help, Tree of Life and Salome.

In China, she is referred to "lady model worker" for her prolific career.
