Following the explosive success of "Furious Seven," Vin Diesel will shift genre-gears and trade in his muscle cars for a flaming sword in "The Last Witch Hunter." The film's first trailer kicks off with narration by a priest played by Michael Caine. Father Dolan gives Vin Diesel, an immortal warrior, a mission: fight in the "war between our world and the next" -- and win.
The following footage mixes creepily surreal imagery with street-level grit as Diesel's witch hunter begins his mission. Ominous trees, fire-breathing villains, waves of butterflies and yes, even a totally awesome car pulse by as the promo progresses. If that doesn't sell you on this supernatural action film, the trailer ends with the "Furious" star carrying a flaming sword.
Directed by Breck Eisner ("The Crazies"), Lionsgate's "The Last Witch Hunter" also stars "Game of Thrones'" Rose Leslie and Elijah Wood. "The Last Witch Hunter" hits theaters on October 23, 2015.
