Classic Fables Jack and the Beanstalk and Hansel and Gretel--with a Twist

With the speed that movies have been out with in recent summers it stands to reason that the studios might be hard up for some new material. That's why we have a ton of remakes and sequels to movies that came out a decade or two ago; sometimes they hit, sometimes they don't.

Seeing these two classic fables that Mom and Dad used to read to us as kids being remade into the action picked, dark stories that we see in the following two promos should not be a surprise. Last summer (I think?) Snow White and the Huntsmen hit theaters; didn't get to see it, but it looked bad*ss and I was told it did not disappoint.

The idea here is pretty smart. Take some stories that everyone is familiar with and put a twist on them that does not go completely away from the well-known story, but allows the studio to create something that folks have not seen before.

I can only imagine what they are going to do to Humpty Dumpty or the Three Little Pigs! Or the Boy Who Cried Wolf!
