Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters

Set 15 years after the "Gingerbread Incident". With brother and sister, Hansel and Gretel are all grown up and are working together. Working as witch hunters. Trying to help villages and stopping children being abducted like they were.

With one of the best trailers I've seen in a while. It has it all, guns, explosions, tight fitting costumes and some strange crossbows all set in a strange storybook world. It's like a cross between The Brothers Grimm and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Catching up with Hansel and Gretel 15 years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have evolved into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. Over the years, the siblings became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy as for an unknown reason harmful spells and curses do not work well against them. The Mayor of Augsburg recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of an evil sorceress who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches' gathering during the upcoming 'Blood Moon' night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.
