Paramount Pictures has again delayed the release of their upcoming Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, though by a significantly smaller margin than the original postponement.
The movie was originally scheduled to be released on March 2, 2012 before being pushed back to January 11, 2013. The film will now hit theaters on January 25, 2013 and will also receive an IMAX release on the same day.
The film arrives from Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola and stars Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton and Famke Janssen. Set 15 years after the Grimm’s Fairy Tale siblings incident at the gingerbread house, the film finds Hansel and Gretel working as bounty hunters, tracking down supernatural beings.
The new date puts Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters up against Parker and Movie 43.
