The UnPopular Opinion: Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

THE UNPOPULAR OPINION is an ongoing column featuring different takes on films that either the writer HATED, but that the majority of film fans LOVED, or that the writer LOVED, but that most others LOATHED. We're hoping this column will promote constructive and geek fueled discussion. Enjoy! ****SOME SPOILERS ENSUE**** I clearly and unequivocably declare myself a snob when it...

Director Tommy Wirkola won't be back for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2

Tommy Wirkola may have completed the screenplay for a follow-up to his HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, but he won't be directing the planned sequel. The DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD director recently told Fangoria he won't be back for HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS 2, and it appears sequel fatigue got to the filmmaker. I’ve just decided to not direct HANSEL...

The screenplay for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 is complete

After being delayed a full year, the $50 million budgeted HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS looked like it was going to be a massive flop. Critically panned, the English-language debut of DEAD SNOW director Tommy Wirkola went on to gross over $200 million worldwide and a sequel was greenlit by Paramount. Since then, we haven't heard much. Wirkola, whose DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS DEAD opens...

Exclusive: Bloody good red-band trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters unrated digital release

HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS ended up being a surprisingly good success at the box office, which threw many for a loop. It didn't crush the U.S. box office, but worldwide total gross was $224 million, which ain't too shabby for a $50 milliion budgeted movie. Now, the hyper violent fairy tale is coming to video and we have an exclusive red-band trailer to share. If you're...

Blu-Ray: It's a Good Day To Die Hard for Hansel and Gretel's Warm Bodies

A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, and WARM BODIES have a lot in common.  They all feature over-the-top action, zombie-like creatures, CGI blood, and dynamic duo team-ups.  I've only seen one of them and that was the unfortunate 5th entry in the DIE HARD series.  I doubt an extended cut will improve it by much, but you never know.  HANSEL AND...

$200 million global box office means we will be getting a sequel to Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

Who says that January is the graveyard for movie releases? Apparently enough people went to go see HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS to make it worthwhile for the studio to greenlight a sequel. You wouldn't think a movie that grossed $54 million in the United States would be considered a success, but look at it from a business standpoint: the movie cost $50 million to make, so it...

Review: Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters

PLOT : After being abandoned by their parents one dark night and fighting off a creepy old witch, Hansel and Gretel make killing evil hags their trade. When a rash of child abductions begin, the two are summoned to find a few witches and keep the young ones safe and snug in their beds… and it takes a whole lot of blood to do it. REVIEW : My expectations for the new action oriented...

The second red band trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is still not impressive

If a movie has a January release date, it usually means the studio is dumping the movie in a time when it knows there will be zero competition at the box office. That does not often bode well for the product on screen, either. HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS is the latest movie to suffer that particular fate, which is a shame considering Jeremy Renner is riding high on the box office...

Red-band trailer and poster for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters with Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton

UPDATED: New poster below! The long-delayed HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton has a new red-band trailer to remind you just how R-rated it is, which isn't by much judging from this.  Sure there's plenty of blood and gore, but most of it is CGI, which kind of dampens the whole thing.  While I give props for even attempting to tell an...

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters captures a new release date of January 25th and the IMAX treatment

The people over at Paramount seem to be having a rough go of it lately, and this release date switch doesn't do anything to dispel those concerns. After all, It's not called "Jackpot January" for a reason, though recent releases like CHRONICLE and THE GREY have shown that the "dump month" perception of January (and February) may be in need of some revision. HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH...
