We all know Jeremy Renner's career has exploded lately. He's everywhere and justifiably so - he's a great actor. But can he successfully headline HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS to box office glory? Time will tell and in the meantime, here is the first indication of how the movie will look and feel.

Yes, this is part of the poster for the movie. The rest of it is just black with these words in the center.

I'm really not sure what to make of the trailer. At times it looks amazing and other times I am kinda put off. I am hoping Renner can pull it all together though as he brings a lot of believability to any production.

Here's the movie's storyline:
Catching up with Hansel (Renner) and Gretel (Arterton) 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 (Janssen) 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 (Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.

HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS opens on January 11, 2013 in 3D.
