WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In an enchanted kingdom, John Gregory (Bridges) is the last of a mystical order that protects the land from witches, ghouls and other creatures. Searching for an apprentice to carry on his legacy, he comes across a farmer’s son Thomas Ward (Barnes) and takes him from his quiet life into a world of magic and monsters. Together, they must defeat the dark queen Mother Malkin (Moore) and her army of supernatural assassins in order to protect the kingdom…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Despite hanging about in the editing room for longer than it should – it was originally supposed to come out over a year ago, but Legendary Picture’s separation from Warner Bros is to blame for that – Seventh Son is a rip-roaring fantasy adventure, filled with monsters galore and Jeff Bridges doing his usual reliable thing in medieval get-up.
