Looks potentially cool.
Anyone else find it weird that Jeff Bridges is suddenly an action star this summer now that he's in his late 90s?
I had never even heard of this movie prior to seeing the preview in front of Pacific Rim last night. Looks a lot more interesting than I expected it to, and the effects look pretty good. Quite a few recognizable names as well. I'm looking forward to it at this point.
I checked for another thread and couldn't find one, so hopefully this is new.
Don't hate. He really pulls the room together.
So is this supposed to be based on the Orson Scott Card's Alvin Maker series?
Kind of looks to have a Sinbad/Merlin feel to it. This one looks more interesting than Pacific Rim.
neat. and weird.
that wasn't previewed before my showing. how is that determined?
We had Elysium and mortal instruments. Probably was a third, that I'm not remembering. but definitely not this.
Looks like it has Brotherhood of the wolf feel to it as well.
Jon Snow is in this as well.

Basically up to 6 movies. 2 are decided by the production/publisher. Movie theater gets to profile and pick 2. This allows them to show a set at lets say 1pm, and a different set at 9pm showings, and/or local competition as you say.
Gravity was one of the other shown for me.
if this song is not the main theme of the movie i will be very disappointed
And fucker, that's the first thing I thought too.
I laughed because I thought "she's screwed".
Did anyone actually see this? Was reminded of it when we watched the DVD of pacific rim.
I think it has been pushed back to next year, because I saw a trailer for it again a few months ago (in theaters).
Guess I should have checked IMDB... Release date is Feb 6 2015... Wonder what the story is there.
Edit: looks like legendary pictures parted ways with warner brothers so the distribution got put on hold until universal pictures picked it up

Trailer looks cool, Bridges accent or whatever the fuck he is doing is laughably bad.
I am such a sucker for trailers like that. It shows some cool scenes with different creatures, it implies said creatures will be in some cool fights, and then you watch the movie and it's just the shit that's in the preview and nothing actually that cool. I'll wait to see what word of mouth says. I don't expect anything great.
Saw this tonight with the wifey. The 3D was surprisingly good (this coming from a man that wears the 3D glasses over his already large frame glasses) and was good in every scene minus a few super fast paced ones. Much more than the typical random stupid shit popping out of the screen schtick. Plot was a little on the lite side, but overall pretty good fantasy themed popcorn flick, adventure movie. Fairly certain Bridges says fuck at one point in the movie.
The main character (other than Bridges, fuck I would have paid more to just see Bridges running around doing his thing) was meh overall.
Saw this the other day. It was OK. If you like fantasy films with dragons and shit then you'll probably want to see this in the cinema, if you don't then wait til it's out on DVD or just torrent it. More than once I got a definite Skyrim vibe from it and kept expecting the main character to go FUS-RO-DAH on someone. The only truly irritating thing is Jeff Bridges voice. I have no idea what they were trying to go for there.
Oh, and the first time you see Jeff Bridges in the tavern and some dude comes up to him and says something like "Hey, you're a knight, shouldn't you be saving people?" or something like this, I wish he'd have replied "Well, you know, that's just like your opinion, man!"
I saw this with the bro and it was campy as hell. Even if you are a fan of fantasy just wait for the DvD.
some rips are out now
was sorta looking forward to seeing this for a while and just felt like it missed the mark the whole way. it seemed like a 90's tv series
Mediocre'ish. It wasn't a complete waste of time, and the special effects looked great, so at least it wasn't like a Uwe Boll film or anything. It just didn't have a lot to get excited about, even though the concept was fairly cool. I think perhaps part of the problem was the limited time in which to set up the premise, find and train the seventh son of the seventh son, and then make us believe he's capable of joining The Dude in fighting world-class monsters. And set up the moral dilemma. Both of which sort of failed.
5 or 6 out of 10 maybe.
It would of been better if the movie started with the apprentice coming to the end of his 10 years, instead of starting him at day 1, which was the easy option and it just made that part of the movie filler.
A 5 out of 10 from me, and wtf with the stupid voice by Bridges.
So was this movie a waste of a cool title and premise?
they should have cut a bunch of people out of it and focused on a smaller core to make you really care about or hate them.
