    They showed the trailer for this before my "IT: Chapter 2" showing. I never watched my 3-D disc of "Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters" (2013) starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. I think I'll do that as my second selection this week for my 3-D Challenge.

    Loved that film, but also have not yet watched it in 3D. I'd thought a sequel was planned, but haven't heard much about it. I think it was originally planned for a 2016 release, but seems to have been delayed or shelved. I'd imagine Jeremy Renner has been busy with Marvel stuff.

    They just HAD to change the title of the fairy tale to fit the "modern emphasis".

    Looks like it'll be practically mainstream compared to Oz Perkins' previous movies.

    Alphabetical order - makes more sense to me.

    I thought the 2013 movie was a flop - and indeed, it didn't do much business in the US.

    But overseas more than compensated! $226m on a $50m budget is pretty good!

    Terrible movie, though!

    Yes, it was a moderate hit worldwide, and there were definite plans for a sequel at the time.

    No doubt, this evil trend to increase the emphasis of women in stories will destroy all of civilization.

    If I'm not mistaken wasn't it Gretel that tricked the witch in the first place
    and shoved her into the oven.

    I watched my 3-D disc this morning and I found it very entertaining as I laughed out a couple of times. I'm going to try to watch the unrated version too as I know it's probably more graphic, but the film is already has enough graphic violence.

    If the emphasis is on Gretel then they should have just called it Gretel: And some other kid.

    No doubt, some think it's needed to save civilization from its evil state.
