Hit the jump to check out the action-packed first trailer for Paramount's upcoming take on the Grimm's fairy-tale - Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton.

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.

Release Date: January 11, 2013 (3D/2D theaters)

Director: Tommy Wirkola
Screenwriter: Dante Harper, Tommy Wirkola
Starring: Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Derek Mears, Thomas Mann

hellfire - 9/4/2012, 8:38 AM

Well lets hope this is better than the Brothers Grimm
marvel72 - 9/4/2012, 8:40 AM
not bad,probably wait for the dvd unless it gets mind blowing reveiws.
spager45 - 9/4/2012, 8:40 AM
Could be fun... Could be painful...
blvdnoise - 9/4/2012, 8:46 AM
Can't wait for this to hit Redbox!
FrankieDedo - 9/4/2012, 8:47 AM
THIS is what a shit should be, the final line "you got to be kiddin' me" is the most used trailer cliche ever (or similar)
This looks a lot like a crossing between van helsing and abraham lincoln vampire hunter.
RunDTC - 9/4/2012, 8:54 AM
that was....different. I can't decide if I'm impressed or want to stab my eyes out....I hate being indecisive...
HelaGood - 9/4/2012, 9:03 AM
holy crap that looks bad...
Ha1frican - 9/4/2012, 9:04 AM
Its looks both awesome and terrible a the same time.. o well after "Bourne Legacy" im not watching an action movie of Renners that doesnt have Marvels name on it...
jonrobie1 - 9/4/2012, 9:06 AM
Looks like Van Helsing 2.
tazmaniak - 9/4/2012, 9:06 AM
I still think Renner is too old for this role. Or she's too young. The characters look the same age as kids, but he's clearly much older than Arterton.
Tainted87 - 9/4/2012, 9:10 AM
Could be funny if they really ham it up. I've always been a sucker for Famke Janssen too...
Dedpool - 9/4/2012, 9:15 AM
Soooo Brothers Grimm with Hanel and Gretel.
Kingdork - 9/4/2012, 9:16 AM
The fact that they aimed it to be R-Rated, and that the director of Dead Snow is behind it gives me hope.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/4/2012, 9:16 AM
Looks like your typical Van Helsing,The Wolfman, Lincoln: Vampire Hunter bullshit.
Pretty much all movies that take place in the 1800's that feature vampires, werewolves, witches, etc are shit.
Marxman12 - 9/4/2012, 9:24 AM
Hey! I really enjoyed The Wolfman.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/4/2012, 9:26 AM
The 2010 one?
Stumblin - 9/4/2012, 9:27 AM
This entire trailer uses every trailer cliche in the book. Shitty generic metal guitar rifts? Check.
Overly CGIed characters? Check.
Explosions? Check.
Walking away from said explosion without looking back? Check
Shitty one liners? Check.
Girl acting overly bad ass? Check.

Yeah, not even going to waste my time watching this. Could have been a cool idea too if they didn't ham it up.
Stumblin - 9/4/2012, 9:28 AM
And The Wolfman was an awesome movie.
jimpinto24 - 9/4/2012, 9:29 AM
Looks good.
marvelstudios - 9/4/2012, 9:30 AM
Looks ok i guess. Might watch it if theres nothing else.
VicSage - 9/4/2012, 9:33 AM
Looks like my kind of movie. from early reviews, the movie sounds to be a decent film depending on which cut the critics saw. Regardless, still seeing it
smlshin - 9/4/2012, 9:37 AM
Jeremy Renner is the only reason I'd go watch this movie.
weaponX2 - 9/4/2012, 9:38 AM
I'm with you Marxman12, I enjoyed The Wolfman too..I also liked Van Helsing. The only thing that makes me want to avoid this is Famke Janssen. I've never been thta impressed with her and to be honest, I don't think she's that attractive spite of the liberties they are taking with the period, such as having a Gatling gun and some of the speech patterns...I think this looks like fun...could actually be good, so I'm gonna check it out
JatevinM - 9/4/2012, 9:41 AM
i know I'll be watching
Ranger14 - 9/4/2012, 9:41 AM
In what period does this movie take place? There's a lot of modern fire power shown in the trailer.
DCjohnny - 9/4/2012, 9:43 AM
wow ... awesome....
DCjohnny - 9/4/2012, 9:44 AM
Gemma Arterton is hoooottt
GodzillaKart - 9/4/2012, 9:46 AM
Looked like they used the same generic template that made Van Helsing a piece of poop.
darkjoker1 - 9/4/2012, 9:47 AM
so hawkeye in the 1800's XD lol yea this movie looks better then the brothers grimm....
DrRockso - 9/4/2012, 9:48 AM
I had high hopes for this one godammit
MarvelChile - 9/4/2012, 9:48 AM
Mmmm, looks very "Van Hellsing" for me...
Seejay - 9/4/2012, 9:52 AM

Okay, that doesn't look very good.

Agree, and that is not a good thing. :)
PaulRom - 9/4/2012, 9:52 AM
Looks meh. Gemma looks great though.
SpideyQuad - 9/4/2012, 9:53 AM
Van Helsing was a steaming pile of poo
imnotwearinghockeypants - 9/4/2012, 9:53 AM
Hilariously awful. Looks like a joke.
TheRaven20 - 9/4/2012, 9:53 AM
Cool story Hansel
DetBullock - 9/4/2012, 9:55 AM
My god, sometimes I wonder what's going on with Hollywood making over-the-top trashy steampunk action films and then labeling them with the title and character names of classic stories.
The premise might have been interesting (Hansel and Gretel growing up to be witch hunters) but the way is developed just sucks.
