Zombies are one of the defining characters in horror, alongside vampires, werewolves, and Frankenstein monsters. In the post-The Walking Dead world, writers and filmmakers have tried with various levels of success to create something new and original from a sub genre that can often produce B-level dreck. My favorite film of 2016 was South Korean zombie flick Train to Busan. Just when I thought I had seen it all from zombies, I watched The Girl With All the Gifts, just released in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The film is written by Mike (M.R.) Carey who also penned the novel in 2014.

The Voices

The Voices is just one of those films that deserve your attention. Not because it’s a blockbuster flick, but because it has an intriguing premise. The movie is strange dark comedy that sees Ryan Reynolds as a likeable factory worker who talks to his pet dog and cat. It’s the kind of film that any pet lover (like myself) would enjoy watching. It made its debut over at the Sundance Film Festival last year where it was met with positive reviews and was called one of the darkest comedies of the year.

Now Lionsgate has released the first trailer for The Voices, which you can see right after the jump.

HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS

In one of the more unexpected bits of news in recent memory, Paramount and MGM have decided to begin developing a sequel to the recent action horror-fantasy, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

The movie only made $54 million here in the States—not at all a good number for a movie like it. But what it had in its favor was that its production budget was only around $50 million. And one should never underestimate the power of overseas box office numbers; in foreign markets Hansel & Gretel pulled in $150 million, which is why a sequel is now beginning to grow.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters PosterHansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
Directed by Tommy Wirkola
Starring: Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare
Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 88 Minutes
Release Date: January 25, 2013

Norwegian filmmaker Tommy Wirkola first gained the attention of Hollywood with his 2007 film, Kill Buljo, a parody of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill.

Since then, Wirkola has released a pair of low-budget horror comedies with 2009’s Dead Snow, a film about Nazi Zombies in the mountains of Norway, and 2010’s Kurt Josef Wagle And The Legend of the Fjord Witch, a send-up of first-person found-footage movies that combines elements of The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, and [●REC].

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is Wirkola’s first big-budget American film, an R-rated fantasy comedy produced by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell. The film picks up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner, The Avengers) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) years after that traumatic incident involving a witch, some bread crumbs, and a gingerbread house.

‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’ Red-Band Trailer: Sex, Fire & Headless Witches

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Header

These past few years we’ve been seeing an interesting twist on childhood fairytales. Red Riding Hood and Snow White and the Huntsman are perhaps the most interesting of the latest Hollywood trend, but neither match the overall silliness and absurdity that is Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

The first trailer had poor CGI, Gatling guns in medieval times, and cheesy lines. This new red-band trailer seems to be focused on the humor and the plot of the film – if you can really call it a plot.

Check out the latest NSFW trailer and the poster for the film below.

It’s being reported that Famke Janssen (X-Men, House on Haunted Hill) has signed on to join the cast of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, the updated sequel of sorts to the old German fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel.

Janssen is set to play the leader of a group of witches who have their hands full with the brother and sister duo of Hansel and Gretel. The story takes place 15 years after the siblings were lured to a wonderful and inviting gingerbread house by a vile witch with plans of cooking and eating them. After escaping their close encounter with the witch, the pair grow up bent on vengeance and ultimately become bounty hunters set on finding and destroying all witches.

Gemma Arterton has been cast as Gretel in Paramount Pictures’ upcoming action/horror/fantasy sequel to the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel.

The new movie, titled Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, is considered more of a continuation of the tale than a sequel, and sees the siblings many years later, now spending their days as bounty hunters. It also stars Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) as Hansel.

Arterton has been a steadily growing star over the past couple of years with appearances in films like Quantum of Solace, The Disappearance of Alice Creed, Clash of the Titans, and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
