The much-delayed Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters was given a trailer back in September, neatly establishing the comedy-horror vibe of the film. Yet any concerns we have dissipate with this latest red band trailer, which shows that Paramount are going for a hard R rating for the US release of this fantasy mash-up. The sheer number of exploding heads should serve as evidence to that. There’s also a new poster for the film below.
Escaping from a witch as kids, Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) have a taste for witch killing. 15 years after their incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into bounty hunters who hunt witches for fun and profit. We can only hope that director Tommy Wirkola built a real hinger bread house for the children of the world to enjoy.
