The trailer for Dead Snow 2 aims for gore, laughs, and lots of dead people

Cinema is about to get much more horrific as we get closer to the month of October. Halloween brings forth the dread, the macabre, and usually some laughs. A surge of horror films will take hold as people seek to be scared and entertained with the likes of serial killers, ghosts and the almighty fan-favorite; zombies. If entertainment is what you seek, look no further than the new...

First bloody trailer for zombie sequel Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead has arrived

For fans of zombies, particularly nazi zombies, and over-the-top horror gore, then your appetite is about to be fulfilled with DEAD SNOW: RED VS. DEAD, the sequel to DEAD SNOW, which found a group of medical students under attack by nazi zombies on a ski vacation. The first film was a fun little cheesy gorefest and the sequel looks to have some of the same flavor, but with a CRANK-like...

Noomi Rapace to play septuplets in Tommy Wirkola's What Happened To Monday?

One of the most difficult tasks as an actor is playing multiple characters in a single film. It takes a rare talent to pull it off and have it not feel fake. Mike Myers , Peter Sellers , and Michael Keaton are amongst the select few who have made it work and Noomi Rapace may be soon added to that list. Rapace will star in director Tommy Wirkola 's film WHAT HAPPENED TO MONDAY?...

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...

$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...
