Warner Bros. Pictures is hoping that Sergei Bodrov’s Seventh Son performs more like Harry Potter than its Clash of the Titans garbage – but unfortunately, the quality looks more like Snow White and the Huntsman or Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Still, the trailer for the adaptation looks kind of cool, and has definitely piqued my interest.
Starring Jeff Bridges vs a bunch of creatures, how to you say no? Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes, Djimon Hounsou, Alicia Vikander, Antje Traue, Olivia Williams, Kit Harington also star.
In theaters January 17, 2014, “In a time long past, an evil is about to be unleashed that will reignite the war between the forces of the supernatural and humankind once more. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) centuries ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance. Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory.
In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. Now he has only until the next full moon to do what usually takes years: train his new apprentice, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes), to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Man’s only hope lies in the seventh son of a seventh son.”“
