If you're planning on dressing up with a pointy black hat and a broom to hit the streets as a witch this Halloween, we have one suggestion for you: don't go near any Hansel & Gretel costumed duos. If they're in character, they may attempt to blow you to smithereens.

Just in time for the macabre holiday is the new trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, the fantasy action movie produced by Anchorman team Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. The first trailer gave us an idea of how writer/director Tommy Wirkola (the man behind the zombie Nazi movie Dead Snow) twisted the Brothers Grimm fairy tale into a 21st century blockbuster (having Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the titular brother/sister team doesn't hurt). The new spot takes the black magic busting to a gorier level, embracing the red band restrictions and delivering bloody good mayhem. Turns out, the best way to kill a witch is to splatter her with a well placed gunshot. Who knew?

Check out the latest trailer for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which keeps the fairy tale trend chugging along. But is it for better or worse?
