Normally I would watch a trailer like this (think Jeff Bridges in Seventh Son) and wonder what exactly was going through the mind of anyone who’d sign up for it. In the case of Vin Diesel, though, I’m pretty sure I know. He’s well-known to be an avid Dungeons and Dragons player, and this is basically his chance to LARP with Frodo Baggins. What gaming geek wouldn’t leap at the chance?
And that gives me hope that there might be something to The Last Witch Hunter, even as what we see here are mostly just the usual generic digital Van Helsing critters. That beard, though…
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
