It’s not a surprise to see the Brothers Grimm fairy tales transformed from their original gore into bubbly, G-Rated kid-friendly films. Their newest trend, however, seems to be the exact opposite.
Similar to Snow White and The Huntsman and Red Riding Hood, another twist has been added to the story we heard as kids in the newest portrayal of sweet little Hansel and Gretel. Only now, the pair are witch bounty hunters.
“Sweet” is definitley not the first word that comes to mind when watching the preview of Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters staring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. This dark revision of a classic tale comes to theaters January 25th and should be a thriller to remember.
