'Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters' Gets A Trailer
via Huffington Post:
Hansel and Gretel, the German fairy tale published by the Brothers Grimm in 1812, is getting the Hollywood treatment. The pair have been reimagined as witch hunters, and the movie stars Jeremy Renner. It sounded like it could have been a cool, quirky project--but any hope for that was dashed by the trailer. This looks like a bit of a dud, doesn't it?
The movie was supposed to be released this past March, but Paramount moved it to Jan. 11, explaining that they wanted to take advantage of Renner's star power, now that he's been in The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy. Which could very well be true, although typically movies are shelved and shuffled around when they don't turn out great.
This movie follows on the heels of Snow White & the Huntsman, which looked vaguely interesting but I'm to understand wasn't very good. Are fairy tales the hot new thing?
Am I being too harsh on the trailer?
And what fairy tale would you most like to see turned into a movie?
