A NEW Netflix trailer for The Witcher promises monsters, magic and massacres – as the November release date is confirmed.
The show – which has been dubbed the ‘new Game of Thrones’ – stars Henry Cavill as monster hunter Geralt of Rivia.
The series is a new TV adaptation of the popular fantasy novel saga written by Andrzej Sapkowski, with the trailer promising plenty of fight sequences and tension.
A female voiceover says: “I’ve heard tales of your kind Witcher.
“You’re a mutant, created by magic, roaming the continent hunting monsters for a price.”
As she speaks, Henry is seen in action, sword fighting and fighting monsters, before the pair come face to face at what appears to be an orgy.
Wearing a mask, she says sexily: “I thought you’d have fangs or horns or something.”
The Witcher replies dryly: “I had them filed down.”
As more sword fighting is seen, the Witcher is seen having rocks thrown at him by angry villagers before being asked: “People call you a monster too, why not kill them?”
The Witcher replies: “Because then I am what they say.”
In another sexy scene, Henry sits topless in a pool of water as he’s asked: “They say Witchers can’t feel human emotion, what do you feel?”
As another montage of action is seen, he replies in a voiceover: “Evil is evil, lesser, greater, meddling. It’s all the same.”
As the Witcher struggles to find his place in the world, a young princess seeks him out, while he is also drawn to a powerful sorceress.
As a huge battle is shown, the Witcher is warned: “If you dismiss her, you will unleash true calamity upon us all.”
As the trailer reaches a crescendo of action, the Witcher replies: “I’ll take that chance.”
It ends with the confirmation that it will premiere on Netflix on Friday, December 20.
