INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
The time for the seventh son of the seventh son has come! And you can tell, because Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have revealed a bevy of press materials for Seventh Son, ranging from photos and a poster to a new trailer.
Loosely inspired by Joseph Delaney’s fantasy novel The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch, the film stars Jeff Bridges as the mentor to Ben Barnes’ “chosen one” against a variety of murderous monsters unleashed by Julianne Moore’s evil queen.
Directed by Sergei Bodrov, Seventh Son also stars Djimon Hounsou, Kit Harington, Antje Traue and Alicia Vikander. It opens Feb. 6, 2015.
In a time of enchantments when legends and magic collide, the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order (Oscar® winner Jeff Bridges) travels to find a prophesized hero born with incredible powers, the last Seventh Son (Ben Barnes). Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom.
