Forget breadcrumbs, because this time around, Hansel and Gretel are leaving a trail of bodies in their wake — and there isn't enough gingerbread in the world to wash away the taste of blood once Jeremy Renner is on the case.

Move over, Abraham Lincoln, because there's a new anachronistic mashup in town and we've got the trailer for "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" right here to prove it.

Just in case the title wasn't descriptive enough, here's the idea behind "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," which arrives in theaters next January: Renner and Gemma Arterton play grown up versions of the fairy tale duo, who have since decided to make witch burning both a hobby and an avocation. And luckily for them, old timey Europe is just chock full of CGI monstrosities waiting to be taken down with strangely modern weapons and one-liners.

Of course, at this point, the whole "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" / "Van Helsing" / "Brothers Grimm" thing is just a wee bit played out. But since any excuse to watch Renner is a good one, here's the new trailer, courtesy of Apple Trailers.
