Whether you think 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' is gonna be one of those epic supernatural action flicks with lots of crossbow-slinging action, or the first biggest disaster of the new year, its premiere will soon be upon us. Before you make a snap judgement, why not check out the first two clips from the Jeremy Renner-leading storybook movie?

You loved him this year in 'The Bourne Legacy' and as Hawkeye in 'The Avengers,' but in today's Way Back When, we visit Jeremy Renner before he was a big star.
Though Jeremy Renner's turn hosting 'SNL' this past weekend may have felt somewhat uneven, many would argue that the normally-stoic 'Avengers' star still did a better job than other hosts unprepared for sketch comedy, like Daniel Craig, or even to a degree Louis C.K. And while Renner wasn't present for the Guy Fieri deleted scene that exploded in popularity yesterday, another 'SNL' deleted scene is making the rounds that might have seen Renner at his best! Check out what didn't make the cut!
Jeremy Renner's having a great year with 'The Avengers' and 'The Bourne Legacy,' but did he have a great night on television hosting 'SNL'?
There's an interesting phenomenon unique to Saturday Night Live: they can book the biggest stars in the world, but sometimes those big stars end up essentially being used as glorified props. Of course, this is only the case when the star in question doesn't prove adept at live comedy and Jeremy Renner more than fit that bill. When that happens, you see sketches like this one, where the star does very little while a SNL veteran (in this case, Jason Sudeikis) gets to drive the scene.
If there's one thing the latest episode of Saturday Night Live proved, it was that Jeremy Renner does not have a bright future in the world of sketch comedy. However, it did prove that Renner has no problem parodying his tough guy action persona. One of the highlights of the episode was a video sketch that followed three guys who take their violent stand off a few steps too far.
When it was announced that Jeremy Renner was going to guest host Saturday Night Live, there was only one guarantee: there was going to an 'Avengers' sketch. After all, why waste the presence of one of Marvel's mightiest heroes? And more importantly, why waste the opportunity to make fun of Hawkeye, the Avenger who's only power is being really good with a bow and arrow?
The current season of 'SNL has traveled up and down the spectrum of celebrity hosts, ranging from returning greats like Anne Hathaway, to risky ventures like Daniel Craig, Bruno Mars and Louis C.K., with varying degrees of success. This Saturday's coming installment should prove pretty solid, with upcoming 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' and 'The Avengers' star Jeremy Renner! Will the intensely stoic Renner be able to tap his funnybone, or make 'SNL' a grim affair with Maroon 5? Check out the promos for your answer!
See? Everything gets better when the storm is over. In spite of all the many weather-related cancellations, earlier we learned that Louis C.K. would indeed go on to host 'SNL' this weekend with musical guest Fun., but what of future hosts? It seems the next two weeks are set as well, with returning host Anne Hathaway, and first-timer Jeremy Renner! So what musical guests will accompany them?
Well, it just figures that Christian Bale would be in the latest David O. Russell film, but we're not complaining. Bale joins fellow Russell alumni Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper, as well as Jeremy Renner, in a new untitled project, formerly known as 'American Bulls---.'
