Perhaps Warner Bros’ own answer to “the next Harry Potter”, the first image from historical fantasy epic “The Seventh Son” has arrived today via USA Today. Ben Barnesreplacing Sam Claflin – plays Tom, a young 18th century sorcery apprentice of Jeff Bridges, who is ancient and benevolent and has struggled for centuries in a fight against Julianne Moore’s evil witch.

The cast also features rising Swedish star Alicia Vikander as a young half-witch named Alice, though we have no images of her just yet. She, along with Claflin, beat out a slew of contenders for the role after extensive chemistry tests. With Barnes replacing Claflin, we can only hope chemistry was still a priority for director Sergei Bodrov and the other filmmakers.

“The Seventh Son” will be released on October 18, 2013 and the first full photo of Barnes and Bridges can be viewed below. Check out USA Today for an additional dramatic image of Moore’s character.
