Didn’t this movie just open in theaters? Studios are starting to realize that it’s better to promote the Blu-ray/DVD release as early as possible, and it was discovered that Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is already available for pre-order.
While an official release date has not been set, Paramount has Amazon.com taking pre-orders for the Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD versions of the movie. The most interesting item for fans of the movie is that the home video release will contain an unrated cut of the film.
A full list of bonus features is not yet available, but we’ll be sure to update this story as soon as more details are released. Until then, we have a look at the cover art below, along with links to our recent coverage of the movie.
“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.”
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was directed by Tommy Wirkola and stars Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Peter Stormare and Famke Janssen.
