International poster for Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters is out!

The international poster for Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters is out and it looks awesome.

The new tale of Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) has our childhood characters all grown up 15 years after their traumatic witch encounter in the gingerbread house. They have become vengeful bounty hunters exterminating witches.

Here is the premise of the movie:

Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton) have grown up and become famous for being highly-effective at hunting down and killing witches in the years since their infamous incident at the gingerbread house. The two were permanently scarred by that event, seeing as that Gretel still suffers nightmares from the ordeal and Hansel is now diabetic (since the witch forced him to eat all the candy when he was a kid).

The town of Augsburg has a serious witch problem, what with numerous children having gone missing and the power-mad Sheriff Berringer (Stormare) burning potentially innocent suspects at the stake left and right. So the town’s mayor recruits Hansel and Gretel to help out.

Hansel and Gretel have their work cut out for them when they arrive in Augsburg. It seems that the rise of the “Blood Moon” marks a holy night for witches, and the siblings have two days before the vivacious sorceress Muriel (Famke Janssen) uses the occasion to sacrifice multiple children for her own benefit.

The poster and trailer looks pretty good. I’m excited.

See the trailer here.

Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters will be in theaters on January 25th, 2013.
