Dead Snow 2 Red vs Dead trailer

Poor Martin. The only survivor of the first Dead Snow discovers in Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead that his troubles are far from over. You see, the infected arm he had to hack off in the last film has since been replaced by a Nazi zombie arm, and it’s got a mind of its own. Specifically, a mind determined to carry out Hitler’s orders.

Fortunately, he’s got some allies. Martin (Vegar Hoel) is joined this time by a trio of Americans (played by Martin Starr, Jocelyn DeBoer, and Ingrid Haas) who call themselves the “Zombie Squad.” Watch the Dead Snow 2 Red vs Dead trailer after the jump.

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hungers

Hollywood is bound to run out of good fairy tales to adapt sooner or later, but of course even that doesn’t have to spell the end of the fairy tale reimagining trend. As long as sequels are still a thing, each one of these adaptations can be stretched out into a franchise. And that’s precisely what’s happening with one that opened earlier this year.

Despite a talented cast and an outrageous premise, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters failed to make much of an impression in the U.S. when it hit theaters two months ago. But it’s had much better success overseas, and as of today has earned a worldwide total of $205 million, or four times its $50 million budget. So you can probably guess where this is headed next. Paramount has just announced that it is pushing ahead with a Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters sequel. Hit the jump for more info.
