It's finally happening, folks, Paramount is ready to unleash HANSEL & GRETEL WITCH HUNTERS upon the world after a length wait. Opening later this month, the Tommy Wirkola-directed horror-fantasy has begun to make its presence known on television sets everywhere, and we've got two of the new :30 spots for your viewing pleasure below.
Starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Peter Stormare and Famke Janssen, HANSEL & GRETEL breaks down like this:
Catching up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma 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 (Peter Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.
The film opens on January 25th in 2D and 3D. Check out this official site right HERE.
