About Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
An explosive, comedic take on the Hansel and Gretel fairytale from the director of Nazi-zombie-splatterfest Dead Snow. As children Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) turned the tables on their witch captor by burning her alive in her own oven. Years later, they spend their days hunting down as many evil witches as they can. They are helped by an arsenal of weapons and the fact that spells do not seem to work on them. The mayor of a German town hires them to kill the witches plaguing his people and soon they learn that their powerful target Muriel (Famke Janssen) commands a troll along with her coven. She wants to complete a ritual that will make her impervious to fire, so Hansel, Gretel and local boy Ben (Thomas Mann) set out to stop her.
