Contention roils within the Mary Sue offices on whether Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters looks like yet another ill advised attempt to blockbuster up a Grimm’s fairy tale that’s taking itself way too seriously; or a spiritual sucessor to films like Van Helsing or Sleepy Hollow that took themselves just seriously enough to go right around the bend to being dark comedy action movies. Either way, it’s the rare action film with a male and female lead who are not in a romantic relationship, so we’re keeping an eye on it.
There isn’t really much more gore or violence in this trailer than those that have come before. There is, however a bit of NSFW language, so be warned.
