Paramount Pictures has released a new international (Russian) red band trailer for the upcoming action-adventure movie Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
In the revisionist fairy tale movie, the once-innocent siblings (Jeremy Renner
and Gemma Arterton
) are all grown-up and working through their past trauma (that whole gingerbread house ordeal) by slaying witches who inhabit their area. Townsfolk turn to them when children start disappearing, but they realize they may be dealing with a creature far more dangerous than a run-of-the-mill witch.
The movie also stars Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Derek Mears, Thomas Mann.
Directed by Tommy Wirkola
, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, opens in theaters on January 25th, 2013.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
Catching up with Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton) 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 (Janssen) 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 (Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.
