It’s interesting watching this second Red Band trailer for Tommy Wirkola’s “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” after just indulging in the gory blood and guts of the latest Red Band trailer for the “Evil Dead” remake (see that here in case you missed it). The two films couldn’t be more different. Whereas “Evil Dead” is throwing everything and the kitchen sink at the screen to freak you out, here’s Wirkola’s “Hansel and Gretel”, which offers up a couple of cuss words and a naked chick’s backside, plus lots of CG blood splatters. I dunno, one seems to be trying harder than the other, but I could be wrong.
Then again, this one has Gemma Arterton cussing and headbutting people. I might have to call it a tie after all…
In this dark spin on the fairy tale, siblings Hansel and Gretel are a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.
Starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Pihla Viitala, Zoe Bell, Derek Mears, and Thomas Mann.
After being delayed from 2012, the siblings finally do their thing January 25, 2013.
