Here's the latest trailer for Lionsgate's The Last Witch Hunter, in which Vin Diesel plays an immortal assassin aided by Eljiah Wood in his attempt to save the world from evil witches. For many of you, just that sentence alone will be enough to convince you to check this out, and adding in Michael Caine and Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie to the mix is just an added bonus. This looks straight-up ridiculous, and even though I don't normally like movies like this, this one might be so outrageous that even I end up liking it.
In this trailer, Diesel recruits Rose Leslie's character to take him to "the dream world," and if he dies in there, he'll die in the real world. Sounds an awful lot like Inception, but with a sword-and-sorcery/fantasy slant to it. The film arrives on October 23rd. Check out the trailer for yourself below:
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.
