As her followers gather power, the dreaded witch reveals her infernal intentions to the noble knight who once imprisoned her, and who now has until the next full moon to train Tom Ward (Ben Barnes), the seventh son of a seventh son, to defend humanity against a threat whose evil knows no bounds. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
