An international trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters has gone online, and gives us our first look at the movie.  The action-fantasy flick stars the eponymous fairy tale characters all grown up (played by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton), and looking to take down witches everywhere.  Part of me really wants to give this movie the benefit of the doubt and hope it will be some goofy dumb fun, but the trailer just makes it look dumb minus the fun.  The film was supposed to come out this past March, but was delayed to January 2013, and this trailer kind of explains why.  The effects look shoddy, the dialogue is cringeworthy, the story sounds rote, and it just seems like it’s trying way too hard to be cool.  Yeah, your movie has gatling guns even though it takes place before gatling guns were invented.  My mind remains intact.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Famke Janssen and Peter StormareHansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters opens in 3D on January 11, 2013.

[Update: The film's official U.S. trailer is also now online along with a poster, both of which are now included after the jump.]

Here’s the U.S. trailer followed by the international trailer.  Click over to Apple to watch in HD.

Here’s the synopsis for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

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.

    That is one awful trailer and if the highlights of dialogue are anything to go by it will be an awful film.

  • Mars

    Umm, wow that actually looks really terrible. Surprised Renner would go for this. Just unspeakably awful dialogue, doesn’t even look like any fun.

    • AlexHeyNa

      My guess would be he signed on to it before he blew up. He only just got that “star status” this past year, so it’s plausible.

      • SaadGKhan

        His star status fizzled out as Tom Cruise Stole the show in MI4 and seems like will return and not hand over the franchise to him plus in Avengers he was the least liked Super hero and no chance of making his own movie about Hawkyre then we got Bourne franchise which recently tanked on the BOX office and no sign of heading with its sequels and now Hansel & Gretel makes asure that he doesn’t get any further main super hero roles. I think he will head back to indie movies after this, just mark my words.

      • sccitylhh

        Tom Cruise cannot both headline a film and steal the show. That’s impossible.

  • Tyler

    It looks like this film doesn’t take itself seriously. Thats a good thing, because if it did….it could end up like Abe Lincoln. This has a January 11 release date, not a month for big movies, but this still looks like a fun way to burn 2 hours. Ill be giving it a gp when its out, but not in that useless 3D format.

    • James

      3D’s useful… just not in the hands of a director who can’t make mature films.

      • Tyler

        I wont disagree, but I also wont agree with you. Maybe its just my vision, but ive seen 7 3D movies (both converted and filmed in), and I dont really notice the “window” effect that everyone seems to get. The only that I actually noticed had a good use of 3D was tue converted Wrath of the Titans (the journey underground to Tartarus was well done) and The Avengers (quite a bit of stuff popped out, but not really any sort of window effect). I dont know, you might be right and there are some fascinating uses of 3D, but either I dont see them, or im unable to.

  • T

    Pure trash.

  • will

    I don’t know. It looks like trash, but it could be the kind of trash I can get behind.

    were u guys watching the same trailer!!!?? Or just jumping on Goldbergs Negative Bandwagon! I’m mean honestly why even bother going to the movies or go on a website and work for it! Find something else to do with your life. It looks fun, cool and kickass! What else do you want! The effects were fine and dialogue was simple and straightforward.

    • GET OVER IT!

      get a good taste in movies you joker

    • GET OVER IT!

      “dialogue was simple and straightforward” hahaha actually i guess this film is as good as it gets for you, well suited ;)

  • SuperCuteThunderKittenKisses

    Yep, cookie cutter garbage. That’s too bad.

  • Grayden

    Movies like this that don’t take themselves seriously are a better use of money to kill 2 hours for than, say, something like Clash of the Titans or Prince of Persia. Which, oddly, both starred Gemma Arterton. I’m not a fan of the NIN song being used ’cause, like someone already pointed out, it tries to make the movie look…cool. If the movie had an overall darker tone, something closer to Underworld, it would gain better press. But darker = serious, and too serious will make it look campy like Blood Rayne.

  • Chris

    Dialog that’s past its prime:

    1. “You gotta be kidding me.”

    2. “That’s New”

    3. “Hell yeah!”

    4. “Morning sunshine”

    Dead Snow (Tommy Wirkola’s last film) was awesome and I’m looking forward to this as a fun, horror comedy, cliche ridden film

  • Alex-mansy

    Would have been cool if they had german or russian accents.

  • Ray

    Looks like Van Helsing meets a Quentin Tarantino movie. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.

    • Strong Enough

      where the f*ck does it look like a QT movie? lmao

      • Josh

        LOL the font for the title is something that QT would use, I think.

  • wacko3205

    I so wanted this to be good…but it has basically the same weapons, town set, & even what appears to be witch eggs towards the end of the trailer @ the “something else’s going on here” bit.

    This is a total rehash of Van Helsing…& I aint on Goldberg’s tip here.

    This looks revolting from start to finish…but I will go see it in support of Renner…no doubt.

    That being said, with the past two summers worth of “fresh cut turds on film”…I’m kinda used to shat.

  • SaadGKhan

    Even though its bad but I will watch it not in cinemas but download.
    and my views about Jeremy Rennur tanking Action Hero Status.
    His star status fizzled out as Tom Cruise Stole the show in MI4 and seems like will return and not hand over the franchise to him plus in Avengers he was the least liked Super hero and no chance of making his own movie about Hawkyre then we got Bourne franchise which recently tanked on the BOX office and no sign of heading with its sequels and now Hansel & Gretel makes asure that he doesn’t get any further main super hero roles. I think he will head back to indie movies after this, just mark my words.

    • Satchmocoltrane

      You already said this…do you feel it bears repeating? Cause I feel it’s kind of douchey. Renner just needs another good dramatic role he can sink his teeth into. He’s not action material, I feel he’d be better in a dramatic role.

  • Yu Sheng Wu

    I’m surprised not by how the trailer looks, but by it’s producers…Adam Mckay and WIll Ferrel are dabbling in action now?

  • Hieronymous Merkin

    This is going to to tank big time – it’s ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER meets VAN HELSING. I doubt if you could round up enough fan boys to fill one cinema to watch this, let alone release this to a general public which has stayed away in droves from exactly this kind of self-aware, self-regarding crap, as both ABE and VAN proved. Further proof of the lameness of studio execs who greenlight this rubbish, presumably out of fear they’re “missing out on something” – I mean c’mon, no-one but a moron with half a brain or less could think this was going to be anything more than a Hallmark TV movie…

    • Brian

      How dare you say bad things about Abe Lincoln. That movie was amazing….so ridiculous and over the top it made it absolutely awesome.

      This Witch Hunters on the other hand…not so awesome.

  • Errol

    Wow, looks like a piece of sh*t to me. What’s Renner doing in this garbage? I thought Avengers had given him a bit of clout to take on better roles, not slip backwards into nonsense like this.

    This looks a lot better than Grimm and Helsing, because this actually looks like it will be fun. Will it be great? No, but it is going to be enjoyable and fun and light-hearted and probably bloody if they go with the R rated version.

    Helsing and Grimm were both extremely boring and slanted films, they had very few redeeming qualities.

    For those saying that Renner is done over this then they clearly don\’t remember Jackman being in Helsing. If Renner is the quality actor people make him out to be then he will bounce back from a bad movie or two to do great things, and if not then its not such a big deal anyways right?
