2013 Movies: The 10 Riskiest Box Office Bets (Revisited)

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters

Budget: $50 Million

Domestic: $58M - Foreign: $170M - Worldwide: $226M

Ratings: IMDb: 6.1 - RT: 54% - SR: 2 Stars

Everything about Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters should have been  a failure - a January release, over-stylized hyper-violence, making a fairy tale more "adult" - but oddly enough, it turned out to be a lot of fun to watch.

The movie isn't without its flaws - which explains its average review scores - and it barely managed to clear its production budget domestically. But if it weren't for the saving grace of the foreign box office, there most likely wouldn't be a sequel in the works.
