This looks fun, like a Ray Harryhausen Sinbad movie crossed with Game of Thrones. Starring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes, Seventh Son is a supernatural fantasy about an ancient evil rising up to annihilate mankind. Filthy looking costume design by Jacqueline West (Argo).
A couple of things stand out: firstly that Moore’s character Mother Malkin (wonderful name) appears to be rocking a feathered cape inspired by Snow White and the Huntsman and secondly, ruffs are making a comeback. The trailer is dark so it’s difficult to make out finer details, but it appears West is keeping costume grizzly and medieval without going cutting crazy. It’s either your cup of tea or it isn’t. Mark us down as hopeful.
Seventh Son is released on 17th January 2014.
