Halsey Releases 'Castle' Video: Watch

Halsey released a fantastical video for the song "Castle" today. It's a high-production and mystical-as-hell visual accompaniment to the song, which she performed at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (April 10). Watch it above. 

As if video's the cross-promotional bent wasn't painfully apparent, we'll explain: Halsey's video features a newer version of the song, aimed specifically at marketing the forthcoming film, The Huntsman: Winter's War. Interestingly, the second installment of the Huntsman series sees Charlize Theron playing the evil queen Ravenna, a character first popularized in Disney's original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937.

Halsey takes a stab at playing the icy Queen in the video above, which intersperses shots of her in royal garb with footage from the film. The Huntsman: Winter's War releases Thursday, April 21.
