As not too uncommon, with the new year comes release date shuffling from the studios. Perhaps this is our first example of 2012...

Word has crossed the line that the Jeremy Renner/Gemma Arterton starring HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS has been bumped back almost an entire year, moving from its original date of March 2, 2012 to the newly slotted January 11, 2013. Apparently Paramount didn't anticipate making such a financial killing with MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL and surprise indie-hit THE DEVIL INSIDE. Being all but guaranteed to finish in the black this fiscal term, Paramount will wait until early next year to break out what could be another huge potential earner. Furthermore, the delay gives audience time to either get acquainted with, or take a breather from, Jeremy Renner, who also has THE BOURNEY LEGACY and THE AVENGERS out in 2012.

Directed by DEAD SNOW helmer Tommy Wirkola:

WITCH HUNTERS chronicles the fairy-tale siblings 15 years after their traumatic gingerbread house incident, which provoked them to become witch bounty hunters.

Famke Janssen (below), Peter Stormare, Zoe Bell, Monique Ganderton, Thomas Mann, Pihla Viitala and Derek Mears also appear in the film. Remember, it now opens January 11, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: This throw your must-see 2012 for a loop or do you not really care about HANSEL AND GRETEL anyway?

At first, I thought this was a huge red flag, but it makes sense to capitalize on his potential fame after both 'The Avengers' and 'Bourne'. Especially after the success they've had already this year. It's not surprising considering we had no trailer and only that image above to judge it by too.

I'm waiting for a trailer but a move to dump month doesn't bode well.
