A trailer for the medieval action-thriller has hit for Tommy Wirkola's HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, and we've got it for you below. It looks like a cross between Terry Gilliam's THE BROTHERS GRIMM and... well, it really looks like Terry Gilliam's BROTHERS GRIMM - right down to Peter Stormare's inclusion. There are a few neat gadgets on hand - the gatling gun is a nice touch - but if I'm being honest, there's not much else on display to get excited about. Let's hope it's just a poor trailer, and there's actually a gem hiding within.

Starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen and Stormare, here's how the official plot for the film breaks down:

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.

You can also watch the trailer in HD right HERE.

HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS has been rated R and will open on JANUARY 11th (in 3D).

I mightn't rush to cinema to see it but I will give it a bash one way or the other. You're right it's nothing new but as long as it's entertaining I'll be happy. Not enough Famke for my liking I actually forgot she was cast in this. That lady doesn't seem to age! Hopefully she does have a decent enough amount of screen time though as she would clearly have a ball with this type of role.

Appeared to be flashes of van helsing without that damn pg-13 rating so hopefully this turns out to be a good popcorn movie. Everyone likes some mindless entertainment on occasion
