HOLLYWOOD, Calif., March 26, 2013 /CNW/ - The fabled siblings are all grown up 
and hell-bent on tracking and killing witches wherever they hide in the 
no-holds-barred epic of modern action and adventure HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH 
HUNTERS, taking flight on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and On Demand June 11, 2013 
from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  The film will also be available early 
for Digital Download on May 21(st).  "Destined for cult status" (Rick Florino, 
ArtistDirect.com), HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS is filled with "super crazy 
action and mind-blowing thrills" (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV) and stars Jeremy 
Renner (The Avengers, The Bourne Legacy), Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace), 
Famke Janssen (X-Men), Thomas Mann (Beautiful Creatures) and Peter Stormare 
(The Big Lebowski).  Written and directed by Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow), the 
film earned more than $200 million at the global box office and a sequel is in 
development.  The sly and ingeniously wicked movie tells the story of the 
brother and sister team seeking to avenge their parents' deaths.  But after a 
lifetime of hunting witches, Hansel and Gretel now must face an evil greater 
than anything they've seen: a terrifying new threat so massive, it could 
destroy the world as we know it.
