'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' Pushed Back Two Weeks for IMAX

Briefly: There was plenty of ridiculous action to behold in the first trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters when the first trailer finally premiered in September. Now that action will get a really big screen for the craziness as Paramount Pictures has announced it has pushed back the release date of the fantasy action film in order to give it a simultaneous IMAX release. Thankfully, the long delayed film has only been pushed back two weeks to January 25th, 2013, and the IMAX addition is likely to try and get as much money as possible out of a film that might make a big splash. We hope it's at least a fun romp in theaters.
Here's the first trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters again for your enjoyment:
Fifteen years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel (Renner and Arterton) have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola (of Kill Buljo: The Movie, Dead Snow) who also wrote the script with Dante Harper. Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare and Zoe Bell also star in the film being produced by Adam McKay & Will Ferrell through their Gary Zanchez banner. Paramount releases Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters in theaters on January 25th next year. Thoughts?
