Quick! Raise your hand if you’re dying for a sequel to “Snow White And The Huntsman.” C’mon don’t be shy….wait….nobody wants this? That’s what we thought. But hey, those international markets are more valuable than ever, and Universal did decently enough with the Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron starring movie (just under $400 million worldwide) that they might as well milk what they can out of this thing.

I for one am excited for this movie so kevin shush

2016 movie season is sounding even better then 2015 movie season


What a waste of time and energy. The first was awful, I can't believe Hemsworth would be interested in revisiting this.
