Paramount Home Media Distribution has officially announced that it will release Blu-ray/DVD and three-disc 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo packs of Tommy Wirkola's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013), starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, and Peter Stormare. The two combo packs will be available for purchase on June 11th.
After getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton) have become the ultimate vigilantes, hell bent on retribution. Now, unbeknownst to them, Hansel and Gretel have become the hunted, and must face an evil far greater than witches...their past.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters will be available in both its original theatrical version and an unrated version with never-before-seen footage that was too intense for theaters.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was smugly dismissed by most critics and even a large demographic of filmgoers, which, I suppose is understandable. It is pure B-movie schlock. But you know what? Itís still, hands-down-pants-off the most entertaining thing Iíve seen this year thus far. Itíll make for a perfect late night romp that I can enjoy with some leftover pizza. Also, Gemma Arterton. Yeah.
seems hollywood is out of ideas?
this movie is terrible,and a sequel...to this....seriously?
i'm not saying a bad word about the actors,both work well togheter,but the story is....sigh
and this is not a single "case"...just look at Oz....or Jack the giant slayer...sweet lord:(
hollywood needs to get that idea out of their heads thinking"the more action,CGI....the better",the storyline is not important annymore,just blow em out of the water with fancy gimmickery...
works on the youngsters,true...but not on die hard movie lovers that grew up with movies like "day the earth stood still....war of the worlds....this island earth...etc...
however,for those youngsters that love a movie with lots of CGI and action...great...enjoy it.
