Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013)

Gemma Arterton dons her sexy outfits and Jeremy Renner shows off his good looks in this new, slightly eccentric version of Hansel and Gretel. Tommy Wirkola bagged an impressive $19 million on it’s opening weekend which I expect is down to it’s IMAX release but it wasn’t a complete ‘misstep’ as one critic called it. I think the performances by both Renner and Arterton were fantastic; it just needed a better and more compelling script to really make the audience feel it was more like a fairytale than a cheap shot at recreating an outlandish version of a classic Grimm tale.
