R-rated fairy tale

As the title suggests, "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" is not your mother's or father's bedtime fairy tale. The 3D R-rated saga pairs Royal Academy of Dramatic Art alumna Gemme Arterton and "The Bourne Legacy's" Jeremy Renner as the butt-kicking siblings whose childhood talent for disposing of witches has developed into a full-fledged adult business.

Opening Friday at Beacon Cinema in Pittsfield, Berkshire Mall Cinema 10 in Lanesborough and North Adams Movieplex 8. in concert
