A few months ago it appeared as though Idris Elba was going to play a "Merlin-esque figure" in director Guy Ritchie's upcoming epic Knights of the Round Table (formerly known as King Arthur). That's obviously no longer the case since Djimon Hounsou is now said to be close to taking the role. He would join Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Berges-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and probably Jude Law in the long gestating project. Maybe if they get this right they can make it the six film spectacle that Ritchie, Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow seem keen on giving us, even though one has to question the public's appetite for these medieval epics. Perhaps the upcoming Seventh Son (in which Hounsou also appears), will give us an indicator of that appetite (though if that flops it may just be because, by all appearances so far, it looks like »

Djimon Hounsou is in talks to play a Merlin-esque mentor to King Arthur in Warner Bros.' upcoming medieval adventure Knights of the Round Table. Idris Elba was in talks to play this mentor named Bedivere back in July, but the actor was forced to bow out due to scheduling conflicts.
Our report from July described Bedivere as the right-hand man to Arthur's father, who becomes Arthur's mentor and teaches the young king how to lead an army. Charlie Hunnam has signed on to play Arthur, with Astrid Berges-Frisbey portraying Guinevere. We reported last week that Jude Law is in talks to play the villain, but his deal has not closed yet. That report also revealed the Bedivere role was the last major role to be cast.
We first reported on this project back in January, when Guy Ritchie came on board to direct. This will be the first in »
Idris Elba was also up for the role, but when dates could not be figured out, the studio turned to Hounsou for the role described as a Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur.
Joby Harold wrote the the script and is producing with Ritchie, Lionel Wigram, Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell. Plot details are being kept under wraps, and the pic will open on July 22, 2016. Niija Kuykendall and Cate Adams are overseeing for the studio.
The studio hopes the film can kickstart another franchise for Warner Bros., with the story to be told over six installments.

“Hell awakens. Let us give the world a taste of what is to come.” Julianne Moore’s Mother Malkin wants to raise some hell in Seventh Son, a Legendary movie due out this winter from Universal. Set in a fantasy world where witches and colossal creatures roam the lands, the film stars Jeff Bridges and Ben Barnes as a duo taking on evil of all shapes and sizes, as evidenced in the film’s new international trailer.
“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. »

If you’re in London, go and see Merchandise at The Laundry. That’s what I’ll be doing, so recommendations don’t come much bigger. If you can’t make it though, this generous French TV session is the next best thing.
It’s true – Belle & Sebastian have gone dance! The Party Line is the first taster from new album Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance and it finds the Glasgow tweesters finally entering the 21st century with perky electropop beats resembling Css and New Young Pony Club circa 2006. Bless ’em.

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.

Just to remind you it's still coming out, Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have released a new international trailer for its fantasy feature "Seventh Son" which is currently slated for a February 6th 2015 release.
Shot two-and-a-half years ago and originally scheduled to open February 2013, the project fell victim to various troubles in post-production from uncompleted visual effects work to the Legendary Pictures switch from Warners to Universal. Now though, it's finally ready for its time in the sun.

It’s been four year since we first reported on Seventh Son (then called The Last Apprentice), three years since the film went into production, and two years since its originally scheduled release date. But the movie somehow still hasn’t hit theaters, so today we have a new Seventh Son trailer to share with you. Jeff […]

If you're into the whole brevity thing, take all the fantasy films you have seen in the last few years and cram them into one movie; congratulations, you just gave birth to Seventh Son. Before we start handing out the cigars though, I have to share with you the new international trailer, so prepare yourself. Jokes aside, this movie has been on the shelf so long (almost four years) that the curiosity alone is almost enough to get me to want to see this thing. The visual effects are as »

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 »

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. »

The plot follows mystical knight Father Gregory (Jeff Bridges) and his apprentice Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) and their fight to defeat the evil witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) and her followers. Even though this movie has been on the shelf for a while, I still hope it's good. The problem is that you have a trailer that basically screams: Fantasy Tropes: The Movie! Hit the jump to check out the Seventh Son international trailer. The film opens February 6, 2015, and also stars Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Olivia Williams, Antje Traue, and Djimon Hounsou.

"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. »

Following the second domestic trailer released in August, Legendary Pictures has debuted the first international trailer for Seventh Son. Originally set for release by Warner Bros. in 2013, Legendary brought this project to Universal Pictures through its new deal with the studio in August 2013, with a release date now set for February 6, 2015.

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. »
