The release of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is just around the corner and the promotional material has been coming thick and fast. We have seen a whole host of different production stills, posters, trailers and clips and now we have been treated to a new Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters clip, which shows Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the titular characters.
The synopsis for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is as follows:
Catching up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton), fifteen years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have grown 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 (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.
As well as Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters also stars Famke Janssen, Derek Mears and Peter Stormare. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is written and directed by Tommy Wirkola and is set to be released on January 25 in the US and then on February 22 in the UK.
