About this time last year, marketing on Seventh Son began in earnest and people were preparing themselves for the sword and sorcery film in October 2013…Then the film got pushed to January 2014. No big deal, but then all of a sudden Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. parted ways. The film was in flux and it was pulled from the release schedule (because no one knew what to do with it). Along came Universal Pictures who became Legendary’s new partner and the film was given a new release date of February 6, 2015.
Many fans were disheartened by the fact the film was being pushed back by over a year and, of course, the marketing for the film completely stopped. Now that we’re moving out of the Summer season, it’s about time to look at it again! Today Legendary and Universal have released an all new poster (above) and trailer for the film, and it still looks as fun as before:
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.
Sergei Bodrov directed Seventh Son from a screenplay by Charles Leavitt and Steve Knight and a screen story by Matt Greenberg, based on the book series “The Last Apprentice” by Joseph Delaney. The film is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Thomas Tull and Lionel Wigram. Jon Jashni, Brent O’Connor and Alysia Cotter are executive producers, with Jillian Share and Erica Lee co-producing. The film will be released in 3D.
What do you guys think of the new trailer? Are you still excited for this movie, or has the long delayed killed your interest?
