The Seventh Son

"They have used you. And they will throw you to the fire." Since actor Jeff Bridges will be seen in the worrisome sci-fi action comedy R.I.P.D. in just over a week, the time is ripe to start the hype for one of his other forthcoming films. The Seventh Son was originally slated to arrive in theaters this October, but the Legendary Pictures production set up at Warner Bros. was just recently pushed back into the abysmal release month of January in 2014. However, thisĀ  first trailer doesn't look half bad, and it seems like Bridges and Julianne Moore might lend some real weight to this young adult fantasy adaptation. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for Sergein Bodrov's The Seventh Son, originally from Apple:

And here's the first Seventh Son poster featuring Jeff Bridges looking pretty heroic:

The Seventh Son

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 January 17th, 2014.

American Might be something.

This looks pretty good actually. I haven't been impressed with the "supernatural/medieval" films we've been getting recently (looking at you Hansel and Gretel), but I feel like there's a way it can work. It needs a certain tone though, we'll see if this can pull it off.

DAVIDPD on Jul 10, 2013


this doesn't look anything like SofW. and while this doesn't look "5 star good", it does look like an okay 1-time watch.

Sorry I meant the poster.

DAVIDPD on Jul 10, 2013


Yeah but Jeff B beats Nick C every day of the week.

Michael Paterson on Jul 11, 2013


H ehe, I'll watch it.

It has some decent vfx in there. It does tend to share ground with other films and the story looks lame but the vfx seems to take it to another level - similar stuff to Snowhite and the Huntsman.

Kind of has a Witcher vibe.

JL on Jul 11, 2013
