Trailer for Hansel & Gretel : Witch Hunters

Trailer for Hansel & Gretel : Witch Hunters

The trailer for “Hansel & Gretel : Witch Hunters”, one of the 2012 hold-overs that’ll finally bow in January 2013, is online. The film stars Jeremy ‘everywhere man’ Renner and Gemma Arterton (“Quantum of Solace”) as the older incarnations of the fairytale characters, now for-hire hunters.

Clint reviewed the script last year and said of it, “Hansel & Gretel hear there’s been quite a few witch sightings in – largely the forests of – their home town of Augsburg, so head back there to hunt and, if necessary, kill whatever they can spot.

Augsburg, it seems, burned at the stake many, many witches in it’s time – some of whom never confessed or were never proven to be anything other than local townspeople. Upon arrival, Hansel & Gretel catch the town sheriff trying to execute another potentially innocent woman.

With guide Jackson (who knows the woods better than anyone, naturally), our skilled hunters stalk the forests of Augsburg in search of kid-nabbing witches, led by the evil Muriel.

There will be blood. There will be fights (and an awesome skuffle between Ms Arterton and Mr Stormare is on the cards. Yes!). There will be humour. There will be suspense. There will be romance. There will be a good movie on screens in a years time. I don’t quite know what it reminds me of, it really is quite original, but I definitely feel there’s a bit of “Buffy”, a little “Tombstone” and even some “Vampires” (The John Carpenter flick) in there.” (Read the rest of it here)
