Check out some concept art for upcoming fantasy flick Seventh Son . . .
Here’s the official synopsis:
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) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries 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. Now 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.
Mmmmh. Not a sequel to Big Lebowski then, but rather a case of Sorcerer’s Apprentice meets Harry Potter then . . .
(The movie is based on Joseph Delaney’s children’s book, first in a six-part series, titled The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch. Confusingly the book is called The Spook’s Apprentice Book 1: The Wardstone Chronicles outside the States.)
Release date is February 15th, 2013. Seventh Son stars Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander, Julianne Moore, Olivia Williams, Antje Traue, Kit Harington. The film is directed by Sergey Bodrov (Mongol).
