This week’s edition of The Digital Wire is positively epic and packed to capacity with major new release announcements. We’ve got some horror, some drama, some more horror, even more horror, action, comic book animation, a 3D documentary starring one of the world’s highest-grossing filmmakers, and finally….horror. Well we are getting pretty close to Halloween and all.
Below you’ll find info on several future home video releases complete with technical specs, release dates, and links to pre-order at Amazon. We would greatly appreciate it if you use those links to order because a small percentage of each order helps keep this website running at max power. The cover art for certain titles has yet to be finalized.
If you’ve not yet seen Dead Snow, the simple and quiet little tale of a bunch of Nazi corpses rising from the snows to wreak bloody havoc on a group of students in the mountains in Norway, you my friend are missing out. It’s every bit as over-the-top crazy as it sounds, and in the best possible way imaginable.
Now a sequel to the movie titled Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead is on the way, and a new trailer has been released. Judging by early screening responses and this first look, the sequel will be just as jaw-droppingly insane as fans hoped it would be.
Be sure to check out the trailer and a synopsis below.
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.
The first image of Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton from their upcoming action fantasy Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters has been released via Entertainment Weekly.
In the movie Renner and Arterton play the fairy tale siblings, who are now all grown up and have a severe hatred of witches—for one reason or another—and spend their time dispatching of them, as you might have gathered from the title.
You can see the first image by continuing on below now.
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.
