Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is the first major movie of the year I’m aware of to open without press screenings, something even Texas Chainsaw 3D couldn’t say. But it will have a four-minute G.I. Joe snippet, which, according to ComingSoon.net…
…shows off a portion of one of two major fights between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow [which]plays out in the film for a full ten minutes without any dialogue whatsoever, homaging Larry Hama’s classic “Silent Interlude” storyline from the Marvel Comics series.
Don’t want to see Hansel and Gretel? I can’t entirely blame you. Here’s a shorter version of the Joe stuff which, unlike the first film, actually does remind me of scenarios I used to act out with my toys.

Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
