Over the past several months, we’ve had new images from some of Warner Bros. 2013 films, but now the studio has released hi-res versions of these images. After the jump, you’ll find hi-res images from Pacific Rim, Beautiful Creatures, Seventh Son, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Pacific Rim opens July 12th, Beautiful Creatures opens February 13th, Seventh Son opens October 18th, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens December 13th.
Warner Bros. has released the first images from their upcoming fantasy-adventure film, Seventh Son. The plot follows mystical knight Father Gregory (Jeff Bridges) and his apprentice Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) and their fight to defeat the evil witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) and her followers. The title comes Ward’s character who is the “seventh son of a seventh son” and thus has special “chosen one” powers.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Olivia Williams, Djimon Hounsou, Kit Harington, Antje Traue, and Alicia Vikander. Seventh Son opens October 18, 2013.
IMAX and Warner Bros. have signed a 20-picture deal. Over the next three years, Warner Bros. will release 20 movies in the IMAX format. This will obviously include the studios 2013 tentpole releases Jack the Giant Slayer, Man of Steel, Pacific Rim, 300: Rise of an Empire, Gravity, Seventh Son, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. It’s a big coup for both companies due to IMAX’s higher ticket prices, and I’m a little surprised to see Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity included in the mix, but glad to see it considered on the same level as Superman and The Hobbit.
Hit the jump to check out the press release. The next Warner Bros. film to hit IMAX will be The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
We’ve got some shuffling of release dates for two Warner Bros. distributions and a new release date for one of our favorite films from this year’s Sundance. Here’s a glance:
- Warner Bros. pushes back The Seventh Son from February 15th, 2013 to October 18th, 2013.
- Another Warner Bros. film, Beautiful Creatures, has taken Seventh Son’s place by moving back two weeks to open on February 15th, 2013.
- Starring Frank Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Susan Sarandon and a robot (voiced by Peter Sarsgaard), Robot and Frank will open on August 24th of this year.

Earlier this week, we brought you word that production had begun on Sergey Bodrov’s (Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan) fantasy adventure, Seventh Son. Now we can bring you the first concept art released for the film, something not seen outside of last year’s Comic-Con. While it doesn’t show off an awful lot, you can get a definite sense of setting and scope from the image.
Based on the The Spook’s Apprentice, the first novel in Joseph Delaney‘s young adult book series, The Wardstone Chronicles, Seventh Son follows a knight training a new apprentice to combat an old evil (how’s that for vague? More plot details after the jump.) The film stars Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Kit Harington, Ben Barnes and Olivia Williams. Hit the jump for the official synopsis and a look at the image.
Production has begun on the fantasy action adventure flick Seventh Son, and with that announcement comes an official synopsis. Briefly: Jeff Bridges plays a knight who had imprisoned an evil witch (Julianne Moore), but then she escapes and plans to do evil witchy things. The knight is forced to take on an apprentice (Ben Barnes)—the seventh son of a seventh son—and only has until the next full moon to get the kid up to snuff. The movie is based on The Spook’s Apprentice, the first novel in Joseph Delaney‘s young adult book series, The Wardstone Chronicles, which has franchise potential because of course it does. Thankfully, it’s got a good cast on board, which also includes Olivia Williams and Kit Harington.
