Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Looks Like Mindless Fun

I’m busy preparing for the Young Frankenstein screening tonight but saw the trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and thought I’d quickly share it.  The movie looks like the Hansel & Gretel fairy tale a la Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, which would have me rolling my eyes if it weren’t for the fantastical horror angle of the film.  I don’t think Hansel & Gretel is going to be a movie of great substance.  Hell, it looks like a witch whips out a mini-gun, something I’m pretty sure didn’t exist in the time period the film takes place in.  However, it does look like its over-the-top nature may provide a fun time.  Plus I do like Jeremy Renner and it’s always nice to see Famke Janssen in a new film.  I just hope the release delays aren’t a sign of the film being terrible.  It looks like it could go either way to be honest but I’m willing to give it a shot come January 11th.
