The designs of their witches were so fascinating, that I counted them among one of the ten 10 reasons I found the movie pretty fantastic. My only complaint was that we didn't have more time to look at them before they were ripped into ribbons. Thankfully, Zeidler has opted to share his character sketches...

10 Reasons Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Is Secretly Great 10 Reasons Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Is Secretly Great

I know. It's officially "rotten" with an 18% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It's stupid, silly, and insanely violent, and so was understandably shuffled off into January, a dumping ground for movies Hollywood doesn't know how to sell. I'll be the first to admit, it's a dumb movie. But if loving Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is wrong, I don't want to be right.

After a lengthy delay (the movie first was expected in theaters in March 2012), Tommy Wirkola’s Hansel and Gretel 3D played IMAX screens starting this past weekend. (It actually won the box office with an estimated $19 million.) Word of mouth might have you wondering if the horror/fairy-tale hybrid is worth the price of the extra 3D ticket. Fair question. Here’s what we discovered

It was a lame weekend for audiences as Hollywood unloaded three major stinkers into theaters. All three newcomers bombed with critics and they could barely score a positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes if you added all three of their percentages together. All three movies dodged critics by not holding review screenings, a bad start for a less than promising weekend.

The winter movie season is picking up steam. (One thing I love about writing this column is I can always start off with the (fill in the blank) movie season and be somewhat correct. Just another reason movies are the gift that keeps giving.) This week we’ve got some kids hunting for witches, ensemble casts and Statham just kind of doing the same thing he always does

As you can see, Renner and Gemma Arterton (Prince of Persia) play the fairy-tale children Hansel and Gretel, who almost ended up in a witch’s oven at a young age. Now grown, they exact revenge on all sorts of witches, leading to Matrix-inspired slow-mo carnage with a driving techno soundtrack.

After what's seemed like endless delays, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is finally making its way to theaters early next year-- and despite the fairy tale origins, a red-band trailer is apparently the best way to get an idea of this R-rated action offering. A new one has debuted online, and you can take a look below-- with lots, lots of blood spatters, so fair warning

It's been a very rough road to the movie theater for the upcoming action film Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. While the project was supposed to be one of the titles that helped make 2012 the year of Jeremy Renner - along with The Avengers, The Bourne Legacy, and late 2011 entry Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol - Paramount Pictures decided very early in the year to bump the film from its original March 2, 2012 release date to January 11, 2013.

finally, there's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, which seemed pretty promising when it went into production early last year, and was set for a plum March release date. Then it got bumped to January 11, 2013, in the traditional early-year dead zone used to dump movies nobody has faith in anymore. But it seemed worth believing in the power of Renner

Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters Will Be Rated R Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters Will Be Rated R

Paramount tested two versions of Wirkola’s production with preview audiences. But in contradiction to early reports that suggested one tested version was PG-13, Collider says both of Paramount’s cuts were R-rated, and the studio reportedly will go forward with an edgier take on Witch Hunters early next year.

Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters Pushed Back To 2013 Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters Pushed Back To 2013

This doesn't sound too good for the project. While the cast is great (with Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Zoe Bell, and Derek Mears on board), and Tommy Wirkola is an interesting choice as a director (you may know him as the filmmaker behind Dead Snow), January is a notorious dumping ground where studios release films that they don't feel have potential either critically or commercially.

As you can tell, there's no lederhosen or Heidi braids here; Hansel and Gretel, scarred by their childhood experiences, have become professional witch hunter, badasses whom Arterton compares to characters from a Quentin Tarantino movie. Here's how she describes where the story picks up

Right now we're not sick of Jeremy Renner-- but we're practically guaranteed to be after these four films are released within eight months of each other. Jeremy Renner will go almost instantly from "Hey, I'll see that guy in anything" to "Dear God, I'm sick of seeing that guy in everything."

The classic Hansel & Gretel fairytale is being turned into an action movie, which is probably more fun than watching a couple of kids get fat and be eaten by witches. This version is called Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters with Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the titular witch killers.

Peter Stormare is a classic "that guy" actor, showing up in seemingly five movies a year and always doing something different; he even popped up at the Super Bowl this year in the Budweiser Old West ad. Now he'll have a chance to bring a little villainy-- something he's very, very good at

With a cast that includes Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen and a plot revolving around the two gingerbread house survivors dedicating their lives to eradicating witches, it's hard not to be excited for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (it also doesn't hurt that it's being helmed by Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola).
