Check out the first two clips from Tommy Wirkola's fun looking horror action film Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. I know the movie isn't going to be a great film, but it looks like it will be a fun ride. The first clip features Hansel (Jeremy Renner) warning his companions not to "eat the candy" at the legendary house where he was almost eaten by a witch. The second clip features Gretel (Gemma Arterton) coming face to face with the story's villain played by Famke Jansen.
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.
The movie hits theaters on January 25th, check out the clips and hit us up with your thoughts!
