The first book in Joseph Delaney‘s fantasy series The Wardstone Chronicles, The Spook’s Apprentice, is being brought to the big screen as Seventh Son, starring Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Trader), Jeff Bridges, and Julienne Moore as the evil Mother Malkin. There’s a lot going on in this trailer, plenty of interesting special effects and Bridges has some kind of gravelly accent thing going on, kinda like True Grit’s Rooster Cogburn… with magical spells. Overall, it looks to be a fun movie.
Seventh Son synopsis:

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. John Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a Spook, a person who fights against the Dark, who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries ago. But now 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: John Gregory.

In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. Now 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 hits theater screens next year on January 17th, and also stars Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones) as Billy Bradley, Djimon Hounsou as Radu and Jason Scott Lee as Urag.
