Trailer: Hansel & Gretel
Below is the rather silly trailer for Hansel & Gretel - Witch Hunters. Looks like the folk lore kids are all grown up and machine gunning the roving hordes of witches munching up forest children. And things get pretty darn explodey when Famke Janssen's baby eater unsheathes her fangs. My hate of Jeremy Renner is fading thanks to MI4, The Avengers, & The Bourne Legacy but that doesn't mean I'll accept him in something as ludicrous as this. My fear is that Witch Hunters is going to take itself far too seriously despite its ancient gatling guns and heavy metal score--for this film to work it's got to get exploitation crazy. Don't see that happening.
