THE SEVENTH SON
“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), the last of the Falcon Knights, had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), many years 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. 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.”
Judging from the trailer it does look like an interesting movie. But it kind of feel like a sanitized story… A grittier take on the story would have been welcome!
Anyway, here’s a first character poster, it features Actor Jeff Bridges as Master Gregory:(Click on the poster to enlarge.)
Besides Jeff Bridges and Ben Barnes, the cast of The Seventh Son also includes Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Olivia Williams, Antje Traue, and Djimon Hounsou.
The release date of The Seventh Son is set for January 17, 2014.
