While we’ve yet to see Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters, and must admit, we’re already rather tired of the re-imagined fairytales (the next up being Jack the Giant Killer), we’d be remiss in our boobtastic responsibilities to the planet if we did not laser pointer up the spilling out cleavage of H&G co-star, Gemma Arterton, who looked like a million
boobs bucks at the Hollywood premiere of her fantasy action film.
We’re really getting into a serious lust crush with this young British lady of the screen, who we first fell in tingle-time with in her role of Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace, and who like our own beloved hausfrau, Gretchen, was also born with six fingers upon each hand. And, now, Gemma is growing up and blowing up but big time, slated to be filming in four or five new movies just this year.
You’ll be seeing a lot more of Gemma Arterton in the near future, hopefully even more than she was showing at her film premiere. Enjoy.
Fairy tales are all the rage these days. Not the versions we knew and loved (or hated) when we were kids, but re-written ones that Hollywood producers and execs will be shoving down our throats in the near future.
They turned Snow White into a chainmail-wearing
adulteress warrior in Snow White and the Huntsman, and now they’re turning Grimm’s candy-hungry siblings into witch hunters. Apparently, that’s what the duo became fifteen years after their close encounter at the gingerbread house. Read more… »
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Hollywood is starting to make movies based on fairy tales now. I’d say it all began in 2010 when Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland was released to much success. It was followed by other adaptations of childhood classics all done in dark and adult-oriented tones, such as Red Riding Hood (this one sucked balls) and Snow White and the Huntsman (which starred Kristen Stewart the adulteress).
You can expect even more fairy tale adaptations in the next couple of years, with Jack the Giant Killer, Oz: The Great and Powerful, and of course, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Who would’ve thought that Hansel and Gretel would grow up to be witch hunters? I certainly didn’t. It looks like filmmakers are using a pretty simple formula to pump out more money-making movies without much effort: fairy tale + insert killer or hunter storyline + cast A-list stars = brand-spanking ‘new’ movie.
It was recently revealed that Jeremy Renner has been cast as the titular Hansel. It’s interesting to see how he’ll transition from being Hawkman in The Avengers and Aaron Cross in The Bourne Legacy to playing an all-grown-up Hansel.
I’m sure this is just the start of a new movie-making trend in Hollywood, so why don’t we all just jump on the bandwagon and supply the producers with a list of fairy-tale movie adaptations that they really should consider doing down the line?
