The red carpet went black for the premiere of The Huntsman: Winter’s War at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles Monday night, with the film’s stars Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, and Chris Hemsworth all on hand to celebrate its debut in dazzling (and dashing) looks.
Hemsworth, who reprised his role as The Huntsman in the action-adventure flick, opted for a three-piece gray suit for the event, and told InStyle working with a group of powerful women was “wonderful.” He added, “They were the best. They’re all just great people and I was just happy to work with such experienced people and to watch how they work, take tips, and steal notes.”
The expectant Blunt, who stunned in a flowy, cream Valentino dress, also gushed over the cast, telling us, “It was just such a joy to work with all of them.” She added with a laugh, “Chris is such a hero for putting up with the bullying that went on from the three women. We just mercilessly tortured the guy and it was cool to be in a film with three really powerhouse female roles. It’s an unusual thing, especially in high-octane, high-budget fantasy world… it was a joy, really.”
Theron, who reprised her role as evil Queen Ravenna, and Chastain, who played trained huntsman and Hemsworth’s love interest, Sara, quickly made their way inside. But, both made sure to take time to pose for photos with fans and sign autographs before they did, as did Blunt and Hemsworth.
Theron was all smiles as she walked into the premiere with a wave in a sleek black dress, and Chastain shut the carpet down in Piaget jewels and a stunning black-and-green Altuzarra dress, complete with a dramatic train.
Perhaps the look was a tribute to the intricate costumes in the film, with four of them, including Queen Ravenna’s gold dress placed on the black carpet for effect. Costume designer Colleen Atwood told InStyle the looks were “time consuming” to construct, with the gold dress taking about “four people two months to make” and weighing 10 pounds. And that was still lightweight compared to a coat Blunt wore in the film that weighed a whopping 40 pounds. “[Emily] was in and out of that very quickly,” Atwood added.
Once the carpet ended, the screening began, and Hemsworth’s brother, Liam, and his reported fiancé Miley Cyrus, were on hand to watch it. When it was over, the duo made a quick exit, holding hands as they headed towards their car.
