The Seventh Son

After taking on the title role of Prince Caspian in the Chronicles of Narnia franchise, Ben Barnes is heading back into the fantasy world for The Seventh Son, an adaptation of The Last Apprentice (or The Wardstone Chronicles) book series by Joseph Delaney. Mongol director Sergei Bodrov is behind the adaptation, and now we have a couple of first look photos from the movie featuring Barnes as Thomas with his sorcerer teacher Spook, played by Jeff Bridges, and Julianne Moore as Mother Malkin, a powerful witch. This could be a fun for Bridges and Moore, but these kind of films always have to climb from behind the shadows of Harry Potter to really get noticed. Stay tuned as a teaser trailer might be on the way soon.

Seventh Son - First Look - Julianne Moore

Thanks again to USA Today for unveiling these two photos from The Seventh Son, produced by Legendary.

When Thomas (Ben Barnes), seventh son of a seventh son, is apprenticed to the local Spook (Jeff Bridges), whose job is to fight evil spirits and witches, he expects a life of danger. However, the boy doesn't realize just how soon he'll face a powerful enemy alone, as Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) escapes her confinement while the Spook is away. Thomas is forced to use his wits, and the help of his enigmatic new friend, Alice (Alica Vikander), to fight the evil witch. And defeating her is only the start of the boy's problems. The Seventh Son is directed by Sergein Bodrov and arrives in theaters on October 13th, 2013.

Would be great to see a film like this, which most expect to be just average, come out of know where and just knock it out of the park.

to boot, as far as i can tell, this is no remake/reimagining or based on a comic book or fairytale or some other crap

Fairy Tales aren't crap. They're fucking awesome. hehehehehehehe

Sure but i will survive if nobody ever releases yet another version of Snow White or Alice in Wonderland or the Wizard of Oz.

Well,judging by the pictures it looks like the cliche/tropes machine is fully operational.

It's true, but think about how the movie companies don't have to pay as much for original stories by 'reworking' the classics, Disney have built an empire on that. Originality is expensive and risky. Fairy Tales are tried and tested. I don't really know where my strange outburst came from, I actually kind of agree with you. But I'll still watch this movie.

So... Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore: Maude Lebowski: Does the female form make you uncomfortable, Mr. Lebowski? The Dude: Uh, is that what this is a picture of? Maude Lebowski: In a sense, yes. My art has been commended as being strongly vaginal which bothers some men. The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina. The Dude: Oh yeah? Maude Lebowski: Yes, they don't like hearing it and find it difficult to say whereas without batting an eye a man will refer to his dick or his rod or his Johnson. The Dude: Johnson?

Jeff Bridges looks cool as hell. Well done wardrobe dept. Julian Moore, in order to make you look scary we'll need to shave your eyebrows... that is all

All I can think of when I look at Jeff Bridges in that pic is Allanon from the Shannara books!
