Jeff Bridges stars in first trailer for fantasy epic Seventh Son: watch now

Warner Bros' big-budget fantasy epic Seventh Son has released a first trailer online, in which ancient knight Jeff Bridges and his young ward Ben Barnes set about trying to defeat Julianne Moore's malevolent witch.

The first trailer is extremely CGI-heavy, something to be expected given that perfecting the film's visuals have already caused a delay in its release date.

Still, now the work is complete we have an array of fire-breathing dragons, six-armed swordsman and drool-fanged beasties in all their glory.

Feast your eyes on the new trailer, below…

Looks like Bridges and Moore have their tongues firmly in their cheeks here, with hammy performances bordering to match the fantasy material. Still, with the potential for plenty of big-budget action set-pieces, the scale and spectacle may yet outweigh what looks a slightly hackneyed set-up.

Directed by Sergey Bodrov and co-starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harrington and Djimon Hounsou, Seventh Son opens in the US on 17 January 2014, with a UK date to be confirmed.
