Paramount Pictures releases the very first trailer for their new action fantasy starring Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans), Jeremy Renner (Bourne Legacy) and Famke Janssen (Taken 2). Following the tradition of twisted Fairy Tale movies such as Red Riding Hood and Snow White and the Huntsman, here is Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.
15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.
I'm already liking what this trailer is showing so far. But I admit that I'm still looking for more. So probably in the few weeks or months, we can have more stills and extended trailers. But just don't reveal too much. I'm happy that Jeremy Renner is getting the break he really deserves and after The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy, he is absolutely the next big thing in action Hollywood. I'm also glad to see Gemma in the big screen. I know she did some movies lately but most of them are quite not that famous like her last movies like Prince of Persia and Clash of the Titans. Now she is coming back on a potential box office hit, I wish her all the best.
Directed and written by Tommy Wirkola, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters are set to premiere in US on January 11, 2013 from Paramount Pictures. Stay tuned for an update for the local release through Solar Entertainment and United International Pictures.
