Finally.. 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' Trailer

Seriously…I have been waiting over a year to see something just anything for this movie. Even becoming on my list of films to see for this year because I built it up in my mind as an awesome action flick with Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton killing witches. I really want to believe this film will be action/comedy/horror all the way in the right ways..but I still have some faith in it after the trailer. The film will for sure have a b-movie feel to it with the overused one-liners and shots.

Also, the film really feels like a spin-off of Terry Gilliam's Brother Grimm with atmosphere, shots, humor, even Peter Stomare in it. I don't believe it to all be bad so lets give it a shot shall we. Here is the trailer for yourself and poster,

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 (Famke 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.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters goes to theaters on January 11, 2013
