Why not start the new year with a completely new trailer for the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters movie? Good decision. After all, Tommy Wirkola‘s dark spin on the classic fairy tale opens in four weeks, so I guess that now is the right time to see what’s up with our favourite bounty hunters – Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton!
Wirkola directed the movie from a script he wrote together with Dante Harper, and as you already know, the movie will center on Hansel and Gretel who are now bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. So-called expert hunters, or something like that.
Beside Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters also stars Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Derek Mears & Thomas Mann and the movie is set to open on January 25th, 2013.
Over the years, Hansel and Gretel 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.
At the end of this report, little reminder: in case you’ve missed, you can check out two fresh TV spots for the movie right here.
