JULIAN MORRIS' PRINCE PHILIP BACK TO "ONCE UPON A TIME", ROSE MCGOWAN & ETHAN EMBRY ALSO IN! NEW TRAILER FOR GEMMA ARTERTON'S & JEREMY RENNER'S "HANSEL & GRETEL WITCH HUNTERS"

Well, I was just about to quit watching ONCE UPON A TIME when it return to the second season this January since it kinda turned from
 fantasy show into a crime or mystery one, and the lack of focus on the lead characters has watered down the whole series, but they do plan to have new cast additions so I might very well give them another chance: first the most amazing news is that wonderful Julian Morris, who so brilliantly (show's co creator Adam Horovitz praised him personally in a recent tweet) portrayed Prince Philip at the beginning of the season but was then killed off, will return to the cast! Two new names will be Rose McGowan who will appear in an origin episode as young version's of Regina's mother Cora (played by Barbara Hershey), stunning Chad Michael Collins will play Doctor Frankenstein's brother Gerhardt, while Ethan Embry will also join them in an unknown role!

HANSEL & GRETEL WITCH HUNTERS TRAILER 2
Your first trailer in the new year, my little freaks, will be the second trailer for a rather unfortunate movie HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS. The bizarre movie adaptation of the famous kids fairy tale was first
  supposed to premiere in 2012 but was moved to January this year, a month known as the graveyard for films. After getting "a taste for witch blood" during their original adventure in the gingerbread house, the famous siblings Hansel and Gretel grow up to become warriors fighting against the forces of supernatural evil. 15 years later, the pair find themselves subject to a plot to end their threat to the witches. The new trailer shows us more of the siblings, revealing something of their fairytale past and their transformation into bounty hunters. As you know, the lead roles went to Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner with Famke Janssen as the main witch. The film is out January 25th in USA.

  1. I agree - how bizarre!! The first thing that sprang to mind was the Bugs Bunny cartoon where Hansel & Gretel shout at the green witch, "Ach, your mother rides a vacuum cleaner."

  3. Interesting takes on the classics. It's so odd to see the fairy tales brought to life like this and so oddly. Great trailers.

  4. Hi, Dezzy,

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Looks like a fun take on the classic Hansel and Gretel. What will "they" think of next?

    ALL the best for 2013 buddy!

  5. Don't think I'll see it at the movie house, but who knows, never say never. But I might catch it on NetFlix, if it comes about.

  6. This version of Hansel and Gretel looks as if it belongs in Hollywoods graveyard. Very cheap looking with cheezy dialogue. Let alone the subject matter.

    I just got done watching Land Girls. A charming BBC series about girls that volunteer to work on a farm during WWII to help provide food for the people in England during rationing. I like history best when it tells the stories of the common man who lived through it.

    1. and promoting extreme guns and weapons as something cool and funny in these days when we've seen what people do with them....

      LAND GIRLS sound lovely, Annzie, I think I would like that one! I'd love to write about such series before they appear but BBC has such a bad bad marketing machinery when it comes to these things... I most usually have to dig out photos for their shows and stories at other places around the web and not at their own site :(

    2. The BBC is so protective of its material and they are so weird about how they release things in different regions. There are a few programs that they allow to be shown on YouTube-QI, Blackbooks, Mock The Week, Peep Show etc. Yet they still won't let me have MI-5 or Sherlock or Merlin.

    3. I don't really get the policies of channels like BBC and STARZ. And both of the channels should give me free goodies every week for all the toil and sweat I do marketing their products :)

  8. I haven't seen Once Upon a Time.

    I might watch the Hansel and Gretel movie if I catch it on satellite, but I don't think I'd pay for it in a theater.

    1. I think you'd like ONCE UPON A TIME, Medeia, judging from the books I've seen you read :)

  9. Part of the problem with Once was wimpy Sleeping Beauty. She's a complete twit, always needing rescuing. Her stupid ass got Phillip killed in the first place. :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Melsy, kill me if I know why they've put Sleeping Beauty in the show. I do love Sarah Bolger, but the character of Aurora is stupid and has no obvious reason to be in the story. The same goes for Cora and Red.

    1. I feel the same way. They've overpopulated with characters that have no real purpose.

    2. and they kill of the good ones - like Philip and sheriff :(

    3. I'm so glad I found someone who things the show is vapid. I thought it was just me and I was afraid to speak out lest I get lynched. God Bless you Melissa :)

    4. we shall still lynch you, dahlink, for the amusement purposes :PPP
      The show was good in the beginning but became a bit stale later on.

    5. Just tie me up and tickle me please :)

    6. Bless you, Anne. :) Tie up and tickle? I like your style. I'd love to do that to Johnny Depp and Richard Armitage. Or maybe I could do it to some of the fine men of Once and spice things up. ;)

  11. Yeah, we saw a trailer for Hansel and Gretel, Witch Hunters when we were at the movies last week. Doesn't look like anything I'd want to see.

    1. agreed on that one, Debs. I wouldn't even post it if the week hasn't been so slow in movie news....

  12. I've tried to avoid all the new about "Once Upon a Time": we are watching the Season 1 !
    Less I know, more it's good!

  14. I think I will wait for Hansel and Gretel to come out on DVD and rent it. I love Jeremy Renner but not enough to see him in this role. I will say, it's good to see him getting more and more parts in movies.

  16. I agree Once Upon a Time sort of lost it's oomph in those last shows, but it's still fun to watch. And, no, no one is ever truly dead on that show. Not when magic is involved. :))

    ReplyDelete
  17. Glad Jeremy is getting more roles! Gosh, we went real dark on this one...
    I enjoyed ONCE at first, than it got old for me!
    I agree they kill off people I want to see!

    Happy New Year Dezzy!!!

  19. I can't stop seeing Hansel as Hawkeye. I seriously think they should have gave him the crossbow.
