Here's the third trailer for Vin Diesel's supernatural action flick The Last Witch Hunter, accompanied by a cool cover of the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black" by Ciara. This latest look at the $90 million period horror spectacle boasts some impressive special effects and seems to avoid the repellent goofiness of other similar paranormal revenge movies, like Nicolas Cage's Season of the Witch or Jeremy Renner's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Diesel appears to be in furious form as an immortal warrior destined to take down the dastardly Witch Queen.
Check out this spirited new preview and the somber set of character posters in the gallery below.
Here's the official 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.
Directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies),The Last Witch Hunter opens wide Oct. 23, 2015, and also stars Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Julie Engelbrecht and Michael Caine.
