Summit Entertainment just released a brand new trailer for The Last Witch Hunter, recently set for release on October 23, 2015.
Vin Diesel stars as 13th century Kaulder, the last of witch hunters, alongside Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie and Michael Caine. The Crazies‘ Breck Eisner directs.
In The Last Witch Hunter, “Tormented by the loss of his family and cursed with immortal life, the last witch hunter (Diesel) is all that stands between humanity and the combined forces of the most horrifying witches in history.“
The trailer boasts all sorts of insane effect-heavy footage with our first glimpses at some of the film’s witches. I like the juxtaposing between the 13th century and today, which could end up being a cool device.
Here’s a newly released, more detailed synopsis:
“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.”
