New Trailer For Jeff Bridges' Seventh Son

18 November 2014 5:06 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While some films gallop to the screen like thoroughbreads, others seems to mosey there, stopping to sniff a shrubbery and maybe munch an apple along the way. Very much the Granny Smith-bothering bracket is Sergei Bodrov’s Seventh Son, a fantasy adventure with a gilded cast that’s taken the languid route to our screens. The new trailer, though, shows that it’s coming soon and has magic in store. Click below to sample said magic. brightcove.createExperiences();To tackle his array of winged beasties and Earth-trembling monsters, Bodrov has assembled a terrific ensemble of sword swingers. Ben Barnes is our hero, with Jeff Bridges lending salty support as John Gregory, a mystical warrior who represents the last of his order. Barnes’s seventh-son-of-a-seventh-son is Tom – Luke Skywalker to Jeff Bridges’ Ben Kenobi – who is learning the ropes of witch-hunting and coming to terms with his supernatural abilities.

International Trailer Lands For Jeff Bridges Fantasy Seventh Son

17 November 2014 1:06 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Like a phoenix rising very slowly and wearily from the ashes, fantasy adventure Seventh Son will soon land in theatres. After a very lengthy stint on the shelf following the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures divorce, its new owners, Universal, have cobbled together an international trailer. The question is, though, will it outshine the somewhat hit and miss efforts of the last preview?

Early talk surrounding the epic, which is directed by Sergei Bodrov, has revolved around its addiction to genre conventions. Warriors, CGI monsters, dodgy accents, and dingy clothing are a few of the typical fantasy tropes that the pic is harnessing to ensnare audiences. If we’re to throw this international trailer into that mix, it seems Universal are attempting to capitalise on the success of Game Of Thrones. But without the cunning, genius or creativity.

To be honest, it’s a damn shame these teasers don’t seem »

New international trailer for Seventh Son

17 November 2014 11:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a few months since we’ve seen anything from Seventh Son, the upcoming adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s The Last Apprentice book series, but with its February release fast approaching Universal and Legendary Pictures have dropped a new international trailer, which we have for you here…

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 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. »

New International Trailer for 'Seventh Son' Fantasy with Jeff Bridges

17 November 2014 11:11 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We fight the darkness, wherever it hides." If the abysmal R.I.P.D. didn't give you enough of Jeff Bridges fighting computer generated monsters, then 2015 has a real treat for you with the long-delayed release of Seventh Son. Honestly, the film basically feels like a fantasy retread of the aforementioned undead action flick, but this time Bridges is showing the ropes to the next in a long line of mythical warriors meant to fight an ancient evil that threatens the world. Ben Barnes takes the lead as the title hero while Julianne Moore has some fun as a makeshift Maleficent. And all of this was apparently shot with an Instagram filter. Here's the new international trailer for Sergein Bodrov's Seventh Son from YouTube: When Thomas (Ben Barnes), seventh son of a seventh son, is apprenticed to the local Spook (Jeff Bridges), whose job is to fight evil spirits and witches, he expects a life of danger. »

17 November 2014 10:34 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

On paper, "Seventh Son" has potential. The cast includes veterans Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore ("The Big Lebowski" reteam), rising stars Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington, along with uh, Ben Barnes, in a Ya adaptation directed by Sergey Bodrov ("Mongol")—what could go wrong? Well, apparently a lot. Shot way back in the spring of 2012, nearly three years and many release date bumps later, "Seventh Son" is finally set to open in cinemas, and a new international trailer is here. Based on the sci-fi series "The Spook's Apprentice,” the movie tells the tale of Master Gregory (Bridges), who plucks an unassuming farmhand named Tom Ward (Barnes) to train in the dark arts, to help him track down the evil witch Mother Malkin (Moore), who he had imprisoned years ago. What follows is the usual quest-y stuff with prophecies and monsters....lots and lots of CGI monsters. "Seventh Son" arrives on February 6, 2015 (unless it gets. »

Ben Barnes & Leighton Meester Get Gritty in First 'By the Gun' Trailer

15 October 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You want in this family, you gotta pay the price." After starring in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, actor Ben Barnes hasn't had the best luck with his film choices. He's the lead in the continuously delayed The Seventh Son, and he seems stuck in a rut if forgettable fantasy or sparsely seen films. Maybe there's a chance that could change with By the Gun, a gritty crime thriller set in Boston that sees Barnes entering the world of the Italian mafia. Leighton Meester doesn't seem to be offering much here though, especially with one particularly terrible line delivery on display that we hope is fixed in the final cut. Watch? Here's the first trailer for James Mottern's By the Gun, originally from Yahoo: By the Gun is directed by James Mottern (Trucker) and written by Emilio Mauro. Nick Tortano (Ben Barnes) is a smooth-talking, ambitious criminal from the streets of Boston. »

Watch: First Trailer For Crime Pic 'By The Gun' Starring Ben Barnes, Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel & Toby Jones

15 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Every now and then a bunch of people get together to make a movie and it lands on our doorstep with little to no warning, and such is the case with "By The Gun." We sorta didn't even know this existed, and frankly, given the names involved, we thought this would've appeared on our radar sooner. Guess not, but at any rate, the first trailer is here. Ben Barnes, Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel, Toby Jones, and that guy from "The Town" all star in this French/Italian production of a Boston-based story about a young Italian American kid named Nick. He falls in with the aging Boston mafia and restores the organization to its former, fearsome glory. But of course, his rise to the top can only be followed by the inevitable fall, and he won't be able to escape his actions. The real question is whether or not "By The Gun »

Venice 2014: 'Jackie & Ryan' review

7 September 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Returning to the Venice Lido in the Orizzonti sidebar after her mildly gripping thriller Texas Killing Fields premièred here back in 2011, Ami Canaan Mann's Jackie & Ryan (2014) is a fleetingly entertaining romantic drama set in the world of street music. Former Prince Caspian Ben Barnes plays Ryan, a postmodern train-hopping troubadour, whose Athena poster boy looks and guitar plucking skills intrigue ex-pop country singer Jackie (rom-com regular Katherine Heigl). She first sees him busking with a buddy on the street and asks if he ever plays his own material. He shrugs her off, but later when Jackie is lightly knocked down by a car while texting, Ryan escorts her back to her mother's house in the Utah wastes.

Venice Review: Ami Canaan Mann’s 'Jackie & Ryan' Starring Katherine Heigl And Ben Barnes

3 September 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Perhaps stung by the middling-to-poor reviews for her last film “Texas Killing Fields,” director Ami Canaan Mann (daughter of Michael) returns to screens under cover of absolute directorial anonymity with “Jackie & Ryan,” a movie hamstrung in its attempts to be a “Crazy Heart” or even “Country Strong”-ish vehicle for Katherine Heigl by being more bland than a mashed potato dinner. It’s a strangely old-fashioned film, yielding a big enough crop of corn to revive the entire Midwestern economy, putting forth a dubiously romanticized view of the philosophical beauty of the train-hopping lifestyle. And while Ben Barnes does the film's decent music great justice with his surprisingly lovely singing voice, that’s really the only authentic feeling thing therein. “Jackie & Ryan" is supposedly all about learning how to git where ya gotta go, but none of the characters start or end in particularly interesting places, and the journey is »
