Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (Official Trailer!)

Check out the official trailer for the brand new fantasy horror flick; Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton here!

We have heard that this new retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm story of Hansel & Gretel is a cinematic mash up between Van Helsing and The Brothers Grimm; with a hint of gore that The Cabin In The Woods production team would be proud of.  Starring the beautiful Gemma Arterton and action veteran Jeremy Renner; check out the official trailer supplied by MegaTrailer.TV below!

The narrative follows Renner and Arterton as the traditional fairytale siblings who are tempted by a mysterious old woman and her gingerbread house in the middle of the forest. However, unlike the original Grimm story; Hansel and Gretel are not as dumb as they seem and manage to give the old witch a taste of her own medicine, by trapping her in an oven. The film continues to follow the siblings into adulthood, where they have made a living out of hunting witches. But when 5 children mysteriously go missing; Hansel and Gretel realise that hunting witches is not as easy as they once thought.

Arterton gives off a cold blooded, focused attitude about her character that we have not seen in her earlier films, whereas Renner’s performance emulates his latest stint in The Bourne Legacy. With the release date pushed back to 2013, the “retelling of fairytales” phase that we have experienced a lot in 2012 might be over; thus making this film flop. But this is only the first trailer and the way the film looks stylistically gives us high hopes. Everyone likes to see an awesome, hard-as-nails girl in a skin tight suit kicking some fantastical butt right? Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters will arrive on our UK screens March 15th.
