After The Devil Inside killed the boxoffice, Paramount Pictures is securing that date in 2013 for another potential sleeper. The studio has made a full-year shift for Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola’s twisted spin Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D, which stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the title characters. Moving from March, it will now arrive in theaters January 11, 2013.
Word on the street is that this flick is good, like really good. It’s an original take on the classic fairytale that is set 15 years after the siblings killed the witch who kidnapped them. Hansel and Gretel have now evolved into bounty hunters who pursue witches.
In addition, Samuel Goldwyn will take Joseph Kahn’s awesome Detention (review) to theaters on April 6 of this year. Odds are it will also hit various VOD platforms day and date. In the film a downtrodden 17-year-old girl is sent to detention where she must survive a slasher film killer and save the world in time for prom.
