Trailer Park - 1/25 Edition

By Michelle Vaccaro,

This week's new releases are out for revenge. Some characters are seeking retribution from accomplices that double-crossed them and others from witches that are trying to kill them. Among them is a Brothers Grimm fairy tale with a dark twist.

Set 15 years after the classic fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters shows the transformation of the young children into vigilantes. After almost being food for a witch as children, the brother and sister duo seek revenge by killing all of the evil sorcerers. During their mission, they come in contact with an evil spirit that can provide insight on their past. The fantasy horror film stars Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen. It's running for one hour and twenty-eight minutes in 2D, 3D and IMAX theaters. The film is rated R for violence, sex, nudity and language.

Peter Farelly & Charles Wessler, the men behind such hits as Dumb and Dumber and There's Something About Mary, bring the star-studded comedy, Movie 43. The one hour and thirty-seven minute film puts big time celebrities like Halle Berry, Gerard Butler, Josh Duhamel, Richard Gere, Terrence Howard, Uma Thurman, and Kate Winslet in crazy, out of the ordinary, interweaving story lines. It's rated R for sex, nudity, language, violence and drugs.

A thief with the mantra of only stealing from the rich is beaten and robbed by his crew in Parker. Seeking revenge, he heads to Palm Beach, the scene of their next heist. He disguises himself as a Texas tycoon and enlists a woman with inside information to help confiscate the goods and leave them penniless. Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Chiklis and Nick Nolte star in the one hour and fifty-eight minute crime thriller. It's rated R for sex, nudity, language and violence.

Rob Lowe, Jennifer Morrison, Julie Bowen, Carrie-Ann Moss and Eric McCormack star in the limited released drama, Knife Fight. Lowe plays a political strategist who is able to spin his clients' scandals and controversial ways into election wins. He soon begins to see the effects of his deceiving ways. The one hour and thirty-nine minute drama is unrated. It's playing in limited theaters.

Four friends prepare for the Cyberbowl Video Game Championship in the limited released comedy, Noobz. Chaos ensues as the gamers make their way to Los Angeles for the competition and to meet one of the men's internet crush. The one hour and thirty minute film stars Jason Mewes, Blake Freeman, Matt Shively, Moises Arias and Casper Van Dien. It's rated R for language.

Two film editor friends, Nick and Darryl, take on a job editing a crazy director's comedy in Supporting Characters. Their new gig tests their relationships with their girlfriends as Darryl continuously fights with his, and Nick contemplates an affair with a co-worker. The one hour and twenty-seven minute limited released film is unrated.

On the hunt for those that crossed them, Hansel and Gretel were out for witches' blood this week. Next week, it's hit men that are seeking retribution for the death of their partners in Bullet to the Head. Also in theaters next week are films about retired gangsters and zombies in love.
