Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

If you thought the first trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was ridiculous, you ain't seen nothin' yet. A new red band trailer (which premiered in theaters with Paranormal Activity 4) has just made its way online, and there's plenty of bloody and explosions. Honestly, this looks like it could be a lot of fun in that Expendables sort of way, but there's also a chance it could be a disaster like Van Helsing. Teaming up Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton is certainly interesting, but remember that this is an early 2013 release (recently delayed two weeks to allow for IMAX), so we should keep our hype in check. Watch below!

Here's the red band trailer for Tommy Wirkola's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters originally from IGN:

In addition to the new trailer, here's the first official poster featuring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton:

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters - First Poster

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?

Really cant stand Gemma Arterton.

She kind of reminds me of a worse version of Liv Tyler or something.

You no longer have one as well.

It's nothing against her looks...

I revoke your right to have a wiener.

There are a lot more attractive actresses out there who actually have acting skills. This chick has the acting skills of a brick wall. Also by todays standards Id give her a 7, maybe an 8 if I was feeling generous so maybe you should date more.

Cody W on Oct 29, 2012


By todays standards? Gemma would be a ten in ancient Babylon and a ten today and by all reckoning she will be a ten long after you and your plain Jane wife and mediocre children have Passed away.

Way to be an ass-hole, definitely not a 10, not even freakin close. Ill stop there.

Cody W on Oct 30, 2012


Haha yea I felt bad after to be honest. I she isn't a ten she is a nine. Seven is right out.

Guilty pleasure?

well, the trailer makes it look like a good time.....but, i'm having flashbacks of "van helsing" - i thought that would be good...and it wasn't. i'm not a fan of gemma arterton,either. i'll probably see this as a rent.

I for one love Van Helsing. A fast paced, entertaining monster mash that had a great cast and a lot of fun throwbacks to the classic Universal monsters. But this isn't that. It's clearly trying to embrace the 'camp', but it's walking a fine line between benefiting from it and suffering from it.

Chris Groves on Oct 29, 2012


i liked the monsters in van helsing too - but the story was awful and the movie suffered because of it. as far as this part of your post: " But this isn't that. It's clearly trying to embrace the 'camp', but it's walking a fine line between benefiting from it and suffering from it."...........i'm not sure what you're trying to say.

I don't know if you're familiar with the term 'camp' or 'campy''s basically 'cheesy' but not in a bad way. Think of the Evil Dead has moments that are somewhat goofy, but for the purpose of bringing a sense of fun and entertainment to the stories. It works in those movies(and Sam Raimi movies in general, most of the time) but in a lot of movies, the 'campy' factor just comes off as NOT working, and the movie is just cheesy as a result. This movie looks too goofy and 'funny' to me, maybe in the film itself it'll be more balanced...but all together it looks like the movie will suffer from it.

These are the kind of films my kids will hide in the Shrek box so I'm glad they're still making them. Some of the best film experiences of my life were ultra gory B action films that I wasn't supposed to watch.

Insert every cliche generic line possible in one movie. Looks bad.
