The Huntsman: two very confusing trailers

The Huntsman and Warrior poster

They both look epic, but they’ve thoroughly confused me. I saw this one first

Which to me sounds like the Huntsman and the Warrior (be still my heart, Jessica Chastain kicking arse)  are caught in the middle of the war between the Evil Queen and the Ice Queen (Emily Blunt!!!). Right, we’re golden? I can get behind this.

Then there’s this trailer, which was the first one released and which I totally missed until now:

Which says, it’s a movie about the Huntsman and the Warrior against the sister Queens.

Here’s the synopsis:

Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.

When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.

Which seems to fall somewhere inbetween the two trailers? Perhaps, half set in the pre-equal, half-sequal? I think? I still think it looks fabulous, but confusing from the trailers.
