Here’s a movie that we’ve almost forgotten completely about popping back up again as it heads towards a release – finally. Unless it’s another false alarm. “The Seventh Son” stars Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes and Alicia Vikander and has seen one setback after another in the past few years since it was filmed, but now here’s a new trailer, once again. Barnes plays the seventh son of a seventh son and an apprentice to Bridges’ wizard. Moore plays the leader of the witches, who are evil and whoRead More

Revolutionary war is apparently all the rage after the success of Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow” and AMC’s “Turn,” so in response the History Channel is starting production this summer on the six-part war series “Sons of Liberty.” It’s only fair for them to capitalize on this trend since the channel does have a bit of an edge on historical drama. The story follows a defiant and radical group of young men with names any red-blooded American will recognize, including Sam Adams (Ben Barnes), “a natural born leader with charisma and a penchantRead More
After dropping the first trailer on us yesterday, fantasy epic “The Seventh Son” is now entering a marketing push leading up to its second Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 20th (it already had one two years ago, in 2011). Today, the first poster from the film has been released, featuring a presumably minor character, played by “Game of Thrones” actor Kit Harington. Ben Barnes plays the titular Seventh Son here, as the apprentice fated to assist Jeff Bridges in his defeat of the evil witches led by Julianne Moore, fallingRead More
Talk about long-gestating! “The Seventh Son” cast its young leads back at the beginning of 2011 and filming took place in the beginning of 2012, but over two years later and…. we’re still several months away from its release. Further bad news: The release date it finally landed on is in the barren desert of January 2014. There might be cause for concern here, but for now, the first trailer has dropped. Ben Barnes plays the seventh son of the seventh son, which means he’s The One to help JeffRead More
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 Barnes – replacing 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,Read More
“Arthur and Lancelot” may be on hold for now, but Warner Bros is clearly keen on Kit Harington, who had been cast to play the Once and Future King. Variety reports the “Game of Thrones” actor has joined the cast of WB’s “The Seventh Son”, starring opposite Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander. Barnes replaced Sam Claflin in the lead role last May and will play Tom, a young apprentice to a sorcerer (Bridges) who fights ghosts and other evil supernatural creatures in 1700′s England. The twoRead More
It’s been one busy weekend for shortlist news, and now comes word even more up and comers are contending for the lead in Roland Emmerich’s next sci-fi epic, titled “Singularity.” Once again, THR has the list of actors reading for the director next week, and this batch includes Luke Grimes, Logan Marshall-Green, Julian Morris and Thomas McDonnell. “Singularity” follows a young man named Adam, whose body is made up of “nanobots”, making him extremely powerful. Also said to be in the running but not reading next week are “Prince Caspian”Read More
It was only a matter of time before the success of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” began paying dividends to its talented young cast. Jason Momoa, Harry Lloyd and Kit Harington have all began venturing into feature films, and now the arguable female lead of the show is following in their footsteps. THR reports Emilia Clarke, who plays badass dragon-rearing queen Daenrys Targaryen, has landed the female lead in action thriller “Overdrive”, while Ben Barnes and Karl Urban will be taking over the male leads that had formerly been filled byRead More
British actor Sam Claflin’s star, which had seemed to be rising exponentially a few scant weeks ago, seems to have fizzled a bit. A pivotal supporting role opposite the likes of Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” didn’t create much buzz and now, he’s lost out on his next potential blockbuster as well. Variety reports that Claflin’s fellow countryman Ben Barnes will be replacing him as the male lead of Warner Bros. “The Seventh Son”. As Tom, Barnes will be a young apprenticeRead More
Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana take a romantic stroll in these first images from the set of indie thriller “The Words”. Cooper plays a newly successful writer who finds out there’s a price to be paid for stealing someone else’s work, while these pictures seem to indicate Saldana will be playing his love interest. Recently Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes, French actress Nora Arnezeder and J.K. Simmons joined Cooper, Saldana, Jeremy Irons and Dennis Quaid in the cast. “Tron: Legacy” screenwriters Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal also wrote the script forRead More
