Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Signs of evil are everywhere — especially in the Seventh Son trailer.
It’s a Big Lebowski reunion on a mythical scale in Seventh Son, the Jeff Bridges- and Julianne Moore-starring adaptation of the Joseph Delaney-penned novel series. Centered on an ancient war between supernatural forces and mankind, Seventh Son sees an old knight named Master Gregory (Bridges) training a new apprentice, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes), to battle evil forces led by the deadly witch Mother Malkin (Moore). But time is running out: Gregory only has until the next full moon to get Tom ready to fight the coming darkness, a process that normally takes years to achieve.
You can watch the trailer below, or in HD at iTunes Movie Trailers. Seventh Son casts its spell in theaters on Jan. 17.
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.
