Vin Diesel is about to swap fast cars for flaming swords and honest witch hunting in the first official teaser trailer for The Last Witch Hunter. In the upcoming supernatural movie, Diesel plays an immortal witch hunter who must save the world from evil witches -- like a boss.

The Furious 7 star plays Connor MacLeod Kaulder, the last remaining witch hunter. He happens to be an ancient warrior who was cursed with the gift of immortality after defeating the Witch Queen (Julie Engelbrecht). The evil Witch Queen gets resurrected (unbeknownst to Kaulder), and she wants some good old-fashioned revenge ... against him and the entire human race! Of course, Kaulder must join forces with a hot red-headed witch (Rose Leslie) to save the denizens of New York City from a terrible plague. Check out the new trailer:

Directed by Breck Eisner (Sahara), The Last Witch Hunter also stars Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones), Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings) and Michael Caine (The Dark Knight trilogy). It is set to hit theaters on Oct. 23. What did you guys think of the first teaser trailer?
