Jeremy Renner Kicks Serious Witch-Butt in the Hansel and Gretel Trailer
Yup. Hansel and Gretel have grown up and now they hunt witches. Although the trailer gives us the enormous guns and blockbuster level explosions we'd expect to find in a Michael Bay picture, the film is actually produced by the duo of Will Ferrel and Adam Mccay. It. Looks. Insane.
On one hand it seems to have more of a sense of humor to it than the similar (and abysmal) Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but it doesn't look quite like a laugh riot either. Check it out and judge for yourself:
Here are some passing thoughts:
-00:20: The entrance to the Witch's house of candy kind of looks like a day-glow Slinky.
-00:29: I hope Jeremy Renner took good care of Laurence Fishburne's Matrix jacket.
-00:56: That might just be the first female headbutt caught on celluloid.
-1:02: Dude, who needs a speeder bike when you've got a broomstick?… No seriously though, that HAS to be inspired by Return of the Jedi.
-1:15: Contrary to reports from the Scandanavian Witch Association children are not part of a healthy, balanced diet.
-1:35: Considering that Famke Jansen still looks exactly like she did in the first X-Men I'm starting to think she might actually be a witch!
-1:55: Conjoined, killer-goth twins??? Awesome!
-2:08: Apparently "you gotta be kidding me" was a saying back in the 1600's too.
Will you be seeing Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters?
