I’m not sure if you can really classify “Dead Snow” director Tommy Wirkola’s Hollywood debut, “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” as a horror movie. Though I suppose it kinda is. I mean, there are witches and demons and such. Those are technically associated with horror movies, kinda the same way the “Twilight” movies are horror because of the vampires, though there’s nothing overly horrific about either franchises. Unless, of course, you find teen movie franchises terrifying.
Anyways, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, check out a handful of new images from Wirkola’s “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”. It’s surprisingly not full of witches, go figure.
15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.
Starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Pihla Viitala, Zoe Bell, Derek Mears, and Thomas Mann.
The hunting commences later this month, January 25, 2013.
