Film News – Seventh Son and 47 Ronin

Seventh Son and 47 Ronin

After a long period of waiting for news on both film, there has finally been a trailer released for both 47 Ronin and Seventh Son. These are two of the films I was most looking forward too this year (along with a few other things including Pacific Rim). So with news of their production and their release finally announced I thought I would share them with you.

Seventh Son (Legendary Pictures - 2014)

Seventh Son (Produced by Legendary Pictures) is the film adaptation of the first book in Joseph Delaney‘s The Spook’s series (also known as The Wardstone Chronicles and The Last Apprentice in America); The Spook’s Apprentice. A story that is set in my home county of Lancashire. I first heard of the film before I heard of the book, it was only from reading the book that I was somewhat able to piece them together. The book in itself while quite small compared to others in the series, is brilliant, absolutely brilliant. I first started reading it last September and while it took me time to get into it (new book) I eventually got into it more and more and by March had finished reading it and started reading the second book; The Spook’s Curse. This past June I even got the chance to meet the Author in a Waterstones in Lancaster.

The Spook's Apprentice

The online synopsis seems to be parallel with the book while the trailer is sort of confusing to someone who has read the book, however I am still very excited about it. The film will Star Jeff Bridges as the Spook and Ben Barnes as the Spook’s Apprentice along with Julianne Moore as the malevolent Witch Mother Malkin and Alicia Vikander as the mysterious Alice. The new release date for the film is January 17th 2014. While that may not be until next year, that still gives you the opportunity to go and read the book, I recommend it.

47 Ronin (Produced by Universal Pictures) is a film based on the legendary Japanese tale of the Forty-Seven Ronin, a group of Samurai who attempt to avenge the death of their master. The film stars Keanu Reeves as a half-British half-Japanese samurai whose character was created for the film. The rest of the cast is predominantly made up of Japanese Actors and Actresses including Tadanobu Asano (Ichi the Killer and Thor) and Rinko Kikuchi (Babel and Pacific Rim).

47 Ronin (Universal Pictures - 2013)

The trailer to the film looks absolutely amazing with essences of both reality and fantasy. With a release date of December 25th 2013 it may look off-putting that it will be Christmas day, but we can rest assured that after Christmas Day, the last Big film of the year will be ready for us to go and see.
