Dragon is pretty big these days – but dragon slayers seem to be on the rise as well. We all saw this coming and knew that these dragons were eventually going to pose a problem. So look no further than Jeff Bridges in his upcoming film SEVENTH SON where he will play the grittiest of all dragon slayers.
We first heard of this when Lionsgate broke the news at San Diego Comic-Con 3+ years ago! I often wondered if it was ever going to get released and it looks like it finally will see the dying light of day in the UK on March 27, 2015 and a U.S. release date on February 6th, 2015.
Seventh Son is an adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s The Spook’s Apprentice. Award-winning filmmaker Sergei Bodrov directs. Seventh Son stars Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart, Iron Man), Oscar® nominee Julianne Moore (Far From Heaven, The Hours), and Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia films).
The film’s international cast also includes Alicia Vikander (The Crown Jewels), Antje Traue (Pandorum, Man of Steel), Olivia Williams (Hanna), and Kit Harington (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”).
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.
