Vin Diesel plays…basically Vin Diesel, but he’s kicking witch ass this time!
A new trailer has dropped for The Last Witch Hunter, an upcoming fantasy-horror-actioner starring Diesel as an immortal warrior whose eternal mission it is to hunt down the Queen Witch.
There doesn’t really seem to be anything new or particularly special on offer here, but, done right, this could still be quite a fun film. There seems to be energy to spare and the cast, which includes Elijah Wood, Michael Caine, and Game of Thrones‘ Rose Leslie, adds some class. We’ll stay on the fence and hope for the best with this one.
The Last Witch Hunter, directed by Breck Eisner (Thoughtcrimes, Sahara, The Crazies), opens in the U.S. on October 23 and Australia on October 29.

Synopsis for The Last Witch Hunter:
The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful QUEEN WITCH, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the QUEEN curses KAULDER with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today KAULDER is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
