Having already led Furious 7 to an incredible $1.3 billion worldwide box office, Vin Diesel is gearing up for a new potential franchise with the fall release of The Last Witch Hunter, directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies). The film has today released a teaser, which you can check out in the player below. There’s also a poster for the supernatural actioner, which can be seen in the gallery viewer 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 (Diesel), 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.
Also starring Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood and Michael Caine, The Last Witch Hunter hits theaters October 23.
