Women across the world have greatly enjoyed watching Jeremy Renner in a wide range of vigilante roles.

From a bomb disposal expert in The Hurt Locker to highly-trained sharp-shooter Hawkeye in The Avengers, Renner has wowed fans with his combat skills -- be it with arrows, rifles or pistols.

This time, he teams up with Bond girl Gemma Arterton, who plays his sister Gretel, and together they form a (very angry but) legendary vigilante pair, waging war on evil witches -- like the one who kidnapped them 15 years prior -- both eventually eliminated at their hands.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters opens in Singapore on 24 January. Watch the trailer  (Warning: graphic images ahead!) here:
