Most actors are lucky to get one major blockbuster opening a year, but Vin Diesel is hoping for two as he introduces his new character Kaulder in The Last Witch Hunter this October after breaking box office records with his latest franchise sequel Furious 7 this past spring. MTV has debuted the first teaser trailer for this fantasy adventure, which finds the action star taking on the role of an immortal warrior. We also get the first poster, which brings us the tagline: 'Live Forever. Hunt Forever.'
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 (Vin 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. Take a look at this first sneak peek footage, which also features Rose Leslie, Michael Caine, Elijah Wood and the menacing Ólafur Darri Ólafsson. Then prepare to enter a world unlike any you've seen before just in time for Halloween this fall:
