Deadline reports that Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton) opened to $500,000 on 2000 screens last night before it expands to 3,372 theatres today. This isn't really a particularly good or bad result for a midnight screening of an R-Rated movie of this type, but the studio were hoping for better. Regardless, it is currently expected to take the #1 spot at the North American box office this weekend with a predicted haul of $25 million. Not bad at all, especially as its budget was only $50 million! Do you plan on checking out the movie at some point over the next few days? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!






Fifteen years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.


STARRING:

Jeremy Renner as Hansel
Gemma Arterton as Gretel
Thomas Mann as Ben
Famke Janssen as Muriel

@ScrewGRIFandhisfollowersimGOKU-

This kid, may be, the most utter retarded thing that has ever, ever ans I mean EVER been on this site. His posts have made everyone as stupid as he is, please, go the [frick] away troll.

I couldnt give a [frick] if you were a fat, loner geek trying to troll or actually get people intrested in hating Grif. No one cares for his ass, he's ( for some reason) respected becuase he makes jokes and shit, you are a pathetic, dog shit eating, dick munching loser.
Gooday.

I'm Kaine, [frick] off.

JUST WATCHED IT, I LIKED IT BUT I SUGGEST WATCHING IN 2D CAUSE THE 3D ON THE FIGHT SCENES COULD BE A BIT MANIC ON THE EYES. BUT I LIKED IT.

I'm thinking this is one of those movies that you'd have to watch it for what it is. It doesn't insist upon itself.

25 million? That sucks. I was hoping it would open around 70-80 million to break January records to warrant a sequel. Oh well.

Gemma is hot as hell. Girl is thick in the right places. She was hot in that Alice Creed flick.

@Gokusbitch (that's what you used to call yourself, before you got banned ?) From the sounds of it im gonna guess that your last post isn't LaughingOutLoud but indeed the sound you are making with grifs junk crammed down your throat balls deep. "Loolooolooolololologurgle" keep up the schtick I think it's cute.

Gemma is beautiful. She's the hottest girl to have surgically separated appendages and artificial "mammo's."

That's good numbers just for the opener. I'm going to see it after I watch Parker first though.
