Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters – sweet, they aint!

The Red Band UK trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is here in all its bloody glory. If you told me the title of this movie a year ago I would have thought you were taking the piss, but I guess they’ve made it, and here it comes. Kind of in the same vein […]

TV trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Done much fighting? Hmmf. Thought as much! Ah, the dry humour of a dwarf with a battleaxe – the weapon, not his wife (females didn’t get much of a look-in in Tolkien’s works). Here’s the new TV trailer for Peter Jackson’s next epic, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, at any rate.
