Hey, this doesn’t look bad at all! We have two great international (read – Russian) TV spots for the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters movie, which opens next month and I definitely recommend you to check them out. And ok, maybe Tommy Wirkola‘s movie is a continuation to the well-known fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, but the truth is that we’re dealing with a pretty weird version of the story in here…
Written by Dante Harper and Tommy Wirkola, the movie is a dark spin on the fairy tale, with siblings Hansel and Gretel who are now a formidable team of bounty hunters. In other words, they now track and kill witches all over the world.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters cast includes Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Derek Mears and Thomas Mann, and Paramount Pictures will release the movie on January 25th, 2013.
Catching up with Hansel and Gretel 15 years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. Over the years, the siblings became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy as for an unknown reason harmful spells and curses do not work well against them. The Mayor of Augsburg recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of an evil sorceress who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches’ gathering during the upcoming ‘Blood Moon’ night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.
Let us know what you think about the movie so far, and stay tuned for more updates!
