New 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' Trailer and Poster: Turns Out Film Is Not the Classic Version of Story


"I don't think we're hunting witches. I think they're hunting us." So says Jeremy Renner in this latest, red-band Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters trailer, immediately turning on its head everything that we thought we knew about Hansel and Gretel apparently being "witch hunters" now. That is to say: we thought they were witch hunters! But no, they are not. The witch hunters have become the witch hunted. Black is white, up is down, etc. Nothing in life makes sense anymore. Not without the guiding light, the eternal truth, of Hansel and Gretel being leather-swathed adults and also witch hunters. So prepare yourself for a new life, one in which even the witch hunters are not safe from witch hunting. Also prepare yourself for some exploding CGI bodies, because this trailer has a few of those, too.
