I recently had the opportunity to watch Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and as ridiculous as it is, I thought it was a fun and entertaining movie. You are either going to like it or hate it. We'll have a review up for you to check out soon. A new Red-Band trailer has been released for the film featuring some fun new bloody footage.
The film was directed by Tommy Wirkola, and it stars Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton as the two witch killing heros, and Famke Jansen as the villain. It hits theaters on January 25th, will you be checking it out in theaters?
Catching up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton), fifteen years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have grown 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.
