Here’s the official synopsis for Seventh Son.

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 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: Master 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.

    A KNIGHT?! …….

    • D. McHugh

      In the books, he’s NOT a knight, but a defrocked priest who has lost his faith and abhors religion, even though his brother is still a priest. The books are quite good. Just the fact that they’ve made Bridges’ character a Knight and “cleaned” him up for a family-friendly movie has me very worried. Not only are they dumbing everything down, but also combining the first THREE books into one movie. Not a good sign. Barnes’ character is also supposed to be 10-years-old. WTF?!

        I know, I have read the books. That’s why I’m so surprised…NO way is he supposed to be a knight….Great, Hollywood is screwing over another great book series.

    OMG, WAAAAYYY too old!!! He should be like 13!

    Barnes has said that the movie is based on the IDEA of the books, not on the book. There are some similar characters and events but the movie is not the same as the book. This is why Tom and Alice are adults in the movie. Barnes is obviously not trying to be a 13-year-old in the movie :)

    Is this a movie blog or the E! channel? Why is the name of the director not mentioned in the article?

    If it will look like Milius’ Conan, then It will be a hit.

    As long as they use the Maiden song as the title track who cares!

  • donald

    Maybe they are making him a knight instead of a spook because america doesn’t understand what that is, like as of right now he is a “knight” but his back story will still have him as an ex priest
