We haven't heard much about Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters since the red band trailer release and IMAX announcement back in October. However, the movie is still set for release on January 25th and we have a look at some new footage from a recently released TV spot.
“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 (Dead Snow) and stars Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Peter Stormare and Famke Janssen. Learn more about the movie by visiting our recent coverage:
