It’s been delayed so many times (from Feb. to Oct. 2013 and then to January next year UPDATE: Delayed again! As of 11/27/13, the new date is 2/6/15 — Variety) that some have wondered if The Seventh Son will ever make it to the theaters, but the release of the first trailer gives new hope.
The movie, based on The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney (HarperCollins/Greenwillow, 2005), stars Julianne Moore as Mother Malkin, “the most evil witch in the world,” Jeff Bridges as the mentor to a young apprentice played by Ben Barnes and is set in the 1700′s.
The next book in the series, the twelfth, The Last Apprentice: I Am Alice, will be released on Sept. 3 of this year.

True to form, Bridges gets the final, and best, line of the trailer.
