Considering it opens in the States this weekend, it’s been a fairly reserved marketing campaign for Seventh Son, but Universal and Legendary Pictures have given us a new look at the fantasy with a Super Bowl spot for the film, which you can watch right 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. 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.
Seventh Son is set for release on February 6th in the States and March 27th in the UK, with a cast that includes Jeff Bridges (R.I.P.D.), Julianne Moore (Carrie), Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian), Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy), Antje Traue (Man of Steel), Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina), Jason Scott Lee (Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story), Olivia Williams (The Ghost Writer) and Kit Harington (Game of Thrones).
