I’m not sure if I even saw “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington (Jon Snow himself) in the recently released first trailer for Warner Bros.’ “Seventh Son” (check it out above if you missed it), but then again, there was a whole lot of stuff happening, dragon fighting, and monster mashin’, that it was hard to really focus on any one thing, or one person. Following up on that trailer and a character poster for Jeff Bridges, the studio has now released a character poster for Kit Harington, just in time for Comic Con.
Curious that Harington gets his own poster before the franchise’s would-be star, Ben Barnes. Anyone wanna read anything into that?
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 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. 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.
Starring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander, Antje Traue, Olivia Williams, and Kit Harington.
The sons grow up next year, January 17, 2014.
