New Vin Diesel Film, 'The Last Witch Hunter,' Gets a Teaser

It looks like Vin Diesel is getting fast and furious on some witches this fall because he's...(dramatic pause)..."The Last Witch Hunter!" The teaser trailer was just released for this Breck Eisner-directed supernatural romp that also stars Rose Leslie (Ygritte from "Game of Thrones"), Elijah Wood, Michael Caine, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Julie Engelbrecht.

Diesel plays a cursed immortal named Kaulder who joins forces with a priest (Caine) and a good witch (Leslie) to defeat a coven of New York City-dwelling witches and thus, save humanity. You got this, Kaulder! A least, you better because, yeah, you're the last, you know...

Here's the full synopsis and then check out the teaser that, aside from Rose Leslie, is severely lacking in witches. The film opens in wide release just in time for Halloween on October 23.

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.
