New Poster for Hansel and Gretel, Witch Hunters

Hansel and Gretel, Witch Hunters (January 2013)

A new poster for the action thriller Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters has been released by the studio (right; click for larger image). The tagline: "Classic tale. New twist."

The storyline catches up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) fifteen years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house. The siblings have evolved into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. Over the years, they have 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.

Directed by Tommy Wirkola from a screenplay co-written with Dante Harper, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters opens in theaters January 25th, 2013. The studio released a trailer last month, but we don't recall featuring it then, so we've embedded it below.
