10 Movies We're Looking Forward To: January 2013

January Preview - Hansel and Gretel

On the opposite side of the spectrum from Gangster Squad is Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, a film delayed until January to accommodate a 3D upgrade and hopefully generate a few more dollars per ticket. Nevertheless, the film - which stars Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner as action hero versions of the fairy tale characters - has its draws, especially for those who hold a special fondness for Van Helsing.

There's also the appeal of an R-rating, which could help keep the film from being a strictly by-the-numbers, genre-based action film. We're still holding out hope for this one - and are especially intrigued by the presence of Adam McKay and Will Ferrell as producers - but if it turns out to be the first flop of 2013, we wouldn't be surprised.
