Starring Jeff Bridges...
USA Today has posted the first two photos from Seventh Son, which comes from director Sergei Bodrov and Warner Bros. Pictures. It is based on the young adult novel The Spook's Apprentice by Joseph Delaney and will be released in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D on October 18, 2013. It stars Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Antje Traue, Olivia Williams and Kit Harington.
Here's a 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.
Jeff Bridges also spoke with USA Today about the film. Here are highlights:
On the medieval costumes in the film: "By the time you get through getting your clothes and makeup on and getting to the sets, you're pretty much there back in the Dark Ages."
On his character: "He's an interesting cat. He's appreciated for keeping evil away, but he's also a frightening figure to the townspeople. When you mess around with darkness, some of that gets in you, too."
On Julianne Moore's Malkin: "In real life, she's gorgeous, and she's gorgeously grotesque [in the film]. She's really something to behold in this."
On exploring different genres: "It keeps it fun for me and it keeps the audience hopefully pleasantly confused as to who I am so they can project the characters I'm playing on to me with a little bit more ease."
