Vin Diesel. A flaming sword. Gnarly witches and supernatural monsters. Vin Diesel’s insane beard. What more could you ask for in a new film from the star of the Fast and Furious and Riddick franchises? Not much — oh, but then there’s Michael Caine and Elijah Wood and Wildling badass Rose Leslie from Game of Thrones. Okay, so you could ask for more, but the latest trailer for The Last Witch Hunter promises more than enough to satisfy.
The Last Witch Hunter
After watching the new trailer for The Last Witch Hunter, it’s easy to see why noted uber-geek Vin Diesel would choose to star in this thing. This looks like one nerdy movie, the perfect chance for Diesel to put his years of Dungeons & Dragon practice to use on the big screen. After all, the story of an immortal warrior teaming up with a priest and a rogue witch to battle evil warlocks and monsters sounds more like an RPG campaign than a movie.
Vin Diesel is such a charming, gracious man, always reaching out to his fans on Facebook to keep them updated on all the latest Diesel-centric news. In his latest post, not only has he revealed that there’s already a sequel to The Last Witch Hunter in development over at Lionsgate, but he’d like to know your thoughts about it.
We already got a look at the full trailer for The Last Witch Hunter, but Vin Diesel has blessed us with an extra treat: a new teaser for his upcoming action fantasy film, featuring his glorious beard and a whole lot of fire. The latest sneak peek at Diesel’s new movie is actually kind of better than the full trailer, which properly introduced us to the plot but left little to the imagination.
On paper, The Last Witch Hunter seems silly, but you know who can handle silly action well? Vin Diesel. The leader of the Riddick franchise is taking on witches and supernatural forces in his upcoming film, and judging by the trailer there’s going to be lots of sword-wielding, flames, and flaming sword-wielding action. Did we also mention Michael Caine is in this? Michael Caine is in this. Let’s go.
Following last week's premiere of the worrisome trailer for the delayed 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters,' we now learn that Vin Diesel wants in on some of that witch hunter action, and he's going to be the authority on it with 'The Last Witch Hunter.'
