In a time of enchantments when legends and magic collide, the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order (Oscar® winner Jeff Bridges) travels to find a prophesized hero born with incredible powers, the last Seventh Son (Ben Barnes).  Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom.  Sergei Bodrov directed SEVENTH SON from a screenplay by Matt Greenberg, Charles Leavitt and Steve Knight, based on the book “The Spook’s Apprentice” by Joseph Delaney.  The film is produced by Basil Iwanyk, Thomas Tull and Lionel Wigram.  Jon Jashni, Brent O’Connor and Alysia Cotter are executive producers, with Jillian Share and Erica Lee co-producing.  The film will be released in 3D. 


Legendary Pictures’ WARCRAFT, a 3D epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based upon Blizzard Entertainment’s globally-renowned universe, will be directed by Duncan Jones (MoonSource Code) and is written by Charles Leavitt and rewritten by Duncan Jones.  The producers are Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Alex Gartner.  Stuart Fenegan, Jillian Share and Brent O’Connor will serve as executive producers.  Blizzard’s Chris Metzen will co-produce.


A legend that has endured since the dawn of man is reborn in THE MUMMY, Universal Pictures’ all-new epic action-adventure.  THE MUMMY is conceived with dramatic intensity by an imaginative creative team including director Andy Muschietti (Mama) and producers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Star Trek and Transformers series) and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy).  Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) wrote the screenplay, and Bobby Cohen and Barbara Muschietti will executive produce.

    2015 for Seventh Son – They really dont like that movie at Universal xD

    • doc

      Season of the Witch anyone? Or how about RIPD? They know they have a turd and are trying to salvage it any way they can.

  • Mars

    Why the fuck are these releases so far away….Mann finished filming Cyber months ago, yet over a YEAR until it’s released. Legendary looks like they’re slipping.

  • The Flobbit

    JESUS! Why the hell is Seventh Son going to be released a YEAR AND A HALF LATER? This really pisses me off; I picked up the books so I could be finished by the time the movie came out.

    Why? Whhhyyyy? It’s not like the movie will do that good, and they should have ridden on the coat-tails of The Hobbit. Damn. Still looking forward to it.

    The Mummy reboot sounds like an utter trainwreck.

    • Sam

      • The Flobbit

        WARCRAFT seems to be doing well…

  • Seasmus

    Stupid Legendary Pictures, they should have kept ‘Warcraft’ where it was, because the JJ abrams shit fest hack job star wars wannabe is going to be abysmal and flop, it won’t be star wars, just like his star trek remakes ARE NOT STAR TREK. His wannabe star wars crap fest film is already abysmal, jj is doing it.
