Jeff Bridges Faces Down A Dragon In The Seventh Son Trailer
And something wicked this way comes. Look! It's Julianne Moore!

Jeff Bridges as a wizard. Julianne Moore as a very slinky, thoroughly nasty witch. And Ben Barnes as the hapless apprentice who's caught in a battle between the two. Seventh Son has all these things and more, and the first trailer for the film is now online.

 Russian director Sergey Bodrov (Mongol) is making his English language debut here, with a story very loosely based on the book The Spook's Apprentice by Joseph Delaney. But even if you've read the book there are some major changes in story. Judging by the trailer, expect this to be seriously epic fantasy with some pretty impressive visuals.

Jeff Bridges' Master Gregory is a "spook", a wandering wizard who fights off witches and demons preying on townspeople but who is himself an object of scorn and suspicion. Ben Barnes is Tom Ward, the seventh son of a seventh son, born with inate gifts for magic but untrained when Moore's Mother Malkin escapes her bonds and starts gathering witches for a major showdown. Oh, and these witches are shape-changing and very, very dangerous.

Seventh Son also stars Kit Harrington (Game Of Thrones), Antje Traue (Man Of Steel), Alicia Vikander, Olivia Williams, Djimon Hounsou and Jason Scott Lee. It will be in cinemas in 2014.

RE: Jeff Bridges Faces Down A Dragon In The Seventh Son Trailer
Have to ask what the heck is going on? I knew they were going to fiddle with the story when they cast Julianne Moore as Mother Malkin. No way did she fit that character... Looks ok in a fantasy kind of way but why bother saying 'inspired by' when all you did was steal the characters and then do some CGI gumph with nothing like the story arc that is in the very excellent series by Joseph Delaney. This kind of 'adaptation' explains exactly why David Gemmell always refused to licence his sto More

What is it about Jeff Bridges?!?!!?
I LOVE Jeff Bridges... And I'm no real fan of dragon movies... But as a medieval allegory for another time under Catholic rule... This looks epic. How does he keep doing it? The man is a legend. And so it the director of this movie, by all accounts of the trailer. That was WILD!!!! (Respect to all crew members too). More
