There aren't many movies whose titles pretty much nail exactly what the film is about, but "The Last Witch Hunter" is one of them. Vin Diesel plays – you guessed it – the last surviving witch hunter. He is immortal, living in modern-day New York, and recruited to fight a sudden uprising of witches in the city. Lots of CGI-laden action ensues.

The movie is directed by Breck Eisner, son of Disney chairman Michael Eisner. The cast is impressive. It includes Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood, Israeli up-and-comer Inbar Lavi, and Oscar-winner Michael Caine. He plays the mysterious figure who recruits Diesel's character back into the witch hunting life. Diesel and Caine... that's an acting combo you never thought you'd see, right? But that's the beauty of the cinema, folks...

Here's the first trailer, which was released today. The film is slated for an Oct. 23 release, just in time for Halloween.
