STILL: Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore & Ben Barnes as SEVENTH SON

Legendary Pictures shared a set photo of apprentice Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) and Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) in dark fantasy Seventh Son ahead of the release of a new trailer. Adapted from Joseph Delaney’s The Wardstone Chronicles series,  it’s about a  Falcon Knight, Master Gregory, who imprisoned an evil witch Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) years ago. When she escapes, Gregory has until the next blood moon to train apprentice Tom — the seventh son of a seventh son — to fight her dark magic.

COMIC-CON SKED: Legendary Pictures Preview of GODZILLA & SEVENTH SON

Two weeks from today, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures preview their upcoming blockbuster films at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, July 20th. Godzilla is the one that intrigues me most, having just wrapped three months of filming in Vancouver. As expected, the new Godzilla is a re-imagining of Toho’s iconic Godzilla, but this time it’s “humanity’s scientific arrogance” which creates the radioactive monster and these ones cross the Pacific Ocean to terrorize San Francisco not Tokyo. It’s not clear which cast will be on the panel  — Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn or Bryan Cranston — but director Gareth Edwards is expected to screen footage from Vancouver. Whatever is shown, I can’t wait to see it online. The 3D Godzilla reboot is scheduled for release on May 16th next year.
