Warner Bros Pictures pushed back the release date of Seventh Son from a 2013 spot to January 14, 2014 but they haven’t delayed showing off a two-minute trailer and a teaser poster with Jeff Bridges. Now, I’m not at all familiar with the source material so I have no idea if this trailer will make fans of The Spook’s Apprentice by Joseph Delaney react with anger or joy. But as someone completely new to the story, the trailer left me wondering what Seventh Son is actually about.
Directed by Sergei Bodrov (Mongol), Seventh Son stars Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Djimon Hounsou, Antje Traue, Kit Harington, Alicia Vikander, and Olivia Williams.
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.
