‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’ Continues the Grimm Action with a New Poster and Red Band Trailer (VIDEO)

Hansel and Gretel
Classic Tale, New Twist, More Action

Fairy tales are all the rage these days. Not the versions we knew and loved (or hated) when we were kids, but re-written ones that Hollywood producers and execs will be shoving down our throats in the near future.

They turned Snow White into a chainmail-wearing adulteress warrior in Snow White and the Huntsman, and now they’re turning Grimm’s candy-hungry siblings into witch hunters. Apparently, that’s what the duo became fifteen years after their close encounter at the gingerbread house.

The grown-up version of Snow White’s tale didn’t entirely suck. And it looks like Hansel and Gretel are giving that franchise a run for their money from the looks of the new red band trailer of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters that just debuted.

Aside from the trailer, they also released a new poster featuring a sex-tastic Gemma Arterton as Gretel and a bad-ass Jeremy Remmer as Hansel. You can check it out in its entirety in the gallery below.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters will hit theaters sometime in 2013.
