The film was supposed to be released in March this year but Paramount delayed the film for reasons unknown. It was reported a couple of months ago that Paramount screened two different edits to test audiences. One was supposedly a PG-13 whilst the other was an R. Then it emerged that both test screenings were in fact R rated but one was more violent than the other. So it’s unknown how violent this will be but Paramount is apparently committed to an R rated version. I think it looks like a lot of fun despite the fact it has a very Van Helsing feel to it (which I thought was a fun film anyway).
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is released in the on US 11th January and in the UK on 15th March.
