Paramount recently released a couple of TV Spots for their upcoming action-fantasy flick "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," which finds Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the grown-up version of the popular fairytale sibling characters who were threatened by an evil witch as children, now travel the lands seeking revenge on all witches by annihilating every wicked witch they come across in order to keep their world safe.
Written and directed by Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow), "Hansel and Gretel" is scheduled to be released in theaters on January 25th.
Catching up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma 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. Now, 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.
