First Look at ‘Very, Very Dark’ Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

Ahead of the trailer’s premiere on Thursday, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first look at Paramount Pictures’ Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, featuring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the fairy tale characters all grown up. And it’s pretty much what you’d expect from a movie about the lost siblings, transformed by the harrowing experience at the gingerbread house into ruthless witch hunters: dark, wide-shouldered leather clothing, and ornate weapons.

The magazine also talks with director Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow), who concedes that while Hansel & Gretel has some comedic elements, “It’s also very, very dark, and bloodthirsty and there’s a lot of cursing. It’s kind of got a [Quentin] Tarantino feel, really.”

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters opens March 2.

    They seem to be carrying stupidly-big-guns.  I’m getting a ‘Van Helsing’ vibe already, unfortunately.

    Gemma is so gorgeous and sexy. She’s a very talented actress. She’ll be wonderful in the film.
