Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D movie premiere; Sydney, Australia...
Hansel & Gretel enjoyed its Australian red carpet premiere tonight at Event Cinemas, George Street, in front of a news media pack of dozens, hundreds of Australian fans, and dozens of security to help control all of the excitement.
"Hansel & Gretel" is a 3-D action flick that reimagines the fairy tale characters as gun-toting badasses played by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton.
The $50 million film arrived nearly a year after its originally release date. It's off to a decent start with numbers and buzz, but has attracted quite the mixed popcorn bag of reviews. Most fans have rated it with a CinemaScore of "B". Approval rating is 18%.
Here in Australia Paramount Pictures has got right behind the project, and one would think is hoping that the Australian market will generally be more positive and receptive to the film than its friends in the United States and Europe.
If you are a big Hansel & Gretel fan, you will likely want to see this movie. If not...
After getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) have become the ultimate vigilantes, hell bent on retribution. Now, unbeknownst to them, Hansel and Gretel have become the hunted, and must face an evil far greater than witches...their past.
