‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’ trailer: Haven’t we seen this fairy tale before?

Apparently this version of “Hansel and Gretel,” due out in January, features a witchy woman that looks a lot like that scary old lady from “Drag Me to Hell;” the use of bows and arrows (a given now in an action movie) as well as a surprisingly large number of massive guns; Jeremy Renner as a wise-cracking, adult Hansel; and Gemma Arterton as a head-butting, grown-up Gretel.

Does it look like a combination of “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”? Kind of. And I’m not sure that’s a good thing. But watch below and decide for yourself.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
