Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters may have been the first real surprise hit of the season. Despite barely making its budget back in the States, the film did well worldwide, bringing in over $211 million. The overblown, ridiculous 3D flick has earned some love in certain circles and if you haven’t caught the film, you’ll be able to purchase it on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on June 11.
That’s actually a really long time to wait for a film that was released way back in January and it makes me wonder if there was some snafu with Paramount’s Home Media Distribution’s big release. Alternatively, the late release may have something to do with Hansel & Gretel’s digital release, which will be available beginning on May 21st. Even the digital release is still a ways away, but at least the flick has the always-likeable Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner to support it.
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters begins 15 years after the events from the well-known fairytale and follows two former orphans turned badasses. If you liked the action, the flick will come in both the theatrical version as well as an unrated version of the flick. Unfortunately, if you are into unrated footage or want to take a look at any of the extras with the release, you’ll have to spring for the Blu-ray or 3D Blu-ray copies of the flick, which will run at $39.99 and $49.99, respectively. You can pre-order the film over at Amazon (opens in new tab) or check out the complete list of bonus features, below.

Reality TV fan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. Theme park junkie. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
