Thanks to IGN, we have a new trailer for Vin Diesel's upcoming supernatural action-thriller called The Last Witch Hunter. The trailer is called "Awakening," and features some new footage along with a cover of the classic Rolling Stones song “Paint It Black,” which was performed by Ciara. I've also included a collection of character posters below the trailer.
This movie looks like it will be a lot of fun. I'm not expecting it to be amazingly mind-blowing, but it will provide some enjoyable entertainment. When you go and see a Vin Diesel movie, you pretty much know exactly what you're going to get, and he always delivers something cool for his fans.
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.
The Last Witch Hunter has a solid supporting cast that includes Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Julie Engelbrecht, and Michael Caine. It's set to be released on October 23rd.
