Is Hollywood butchering another fairytale story?
When I got word about this new film all I could do was laugh. Even as I watched the trailer I continued to laugh. I will say that this is a nice spin on the story and makes sense. I’m happy that the story focuses on Hansel & Gretel later in life and that it will feature a ton of witches. That adds a lot of flexibility for the film and my acceptance of it.
But seriously this seems like a film that you have to throw popcorn at the screen to fully enjoy it. Sometimes those do turn out to be the best kinds of movies. I would like to point out that Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is meant to be funny – that doesn’t mean that it actually will be though. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are some of the producers. So at least it does have some comedic talent behind it.
What do you think: Will Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters be a flop or a new classic fairy tale film?
