Seventh Son trailer: what the…?

So apparently there is an “acclaimed series” (of what? books? comics? a TV show?) but instead of telling that good-stuff story, this movie is merely stealing some ideas from it– er, was “inspired by” it.

This does not bode well.

Nor does this trailer. A bunch of monsters and dragons and witches and mystical mumbo-jumbo, some random fighting and kissing, and that’s meant to get us excited? When we can see anything at all that is, the trailer is so damn dark. I cannot distinguish this movie from the other medieval monster stories we’ve gotten recently (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Season of the Witch)… and none of them have been any good.
