Exclusive trailer time!

Remember the story of Hansel and Gretel and that evil witch who destroyed their amazing gingerbread house? Well they're all grown up now and ready to get their own back. If Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman was anything to go by, modern day interpretations or retellings of age old fairytales are something that when handled with care, can deliver quite the cinematic experience. What's more, get the hottest actor in Hollywood right now - Mr. Jeremy Renner - to star as the titular Hansel and you've got yourself a winner.

Directed by Tommy Wirkola, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters picks up 15 years after the siblings' traumatic gingerbread-house incident. We meet Hansel and Gretel who have grown up to become a formidable team of bounty hunters whose aim it is track and kill witches the world over.

Without further ado, let's allow the trailer to speak for itself...


Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters will be released in Irish cinemas on March 15th, 2013.
