hansel-gretel_poster2The first week of 2013 didn’t provide much interesting news, but there are still some few news bits worth getting updated on.

Some clips and trailers for the upcoming movie Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters have popped up on the web the last week. The film is directed by the norwegian Tommy Wirkola, who is known for his zombie film Dead Snow and a norwegian comedy called Kill Bujo. The film is scheduled for a cinema release in the US on the 25th later this month. Check out the Red Band trailer and two clips of the film on Bloody Disgusting.

The Texas Chainsaw 3D had a very good start at the box office, raking in $23 mill over the weekend, which also means it took over the number 1 spot.

You can check it out on practically any horror site, including Bloody Disgusting.

This weeks trailer is Dr. Frankenstein’s Wax Museum of the Hungry Dead, which is the upcoming film from Scorpio Film Releasing. It will be directed by Richard Griffin and he says that he was inspired by Jess Franco while making this movie. For more details and still shots, check out Dread Central.
