Stars Launch Save the Arctic Campaign

One Direction, Sir Paul McCartney, Ben Barnes and Lily Cole are just a few of the celebrities who are supporting Greenpeace’s Save The Arctic Campaign.

They are asking for a global sanctuary in the Arctic, and are demanding that oil drilling and unsustainable fishing are banned in Arctic waters.

Rita Ora, Thom Yorke, Jude Law, Ed Norton and more will be among the first 100 names to be written on the Arctic Scroll supporting the cause. You can add your name here.

When a million others add their own names, Greenpeace will embark on an expedition to plant it on the seabed at the North Pole, four kilometres beneath the ice. The spot will be marked by a Flag for the Future designed by the youth of the world.

Anybody in the world can add their name to the Arctic Scroll and have their name planted beneath the pole by visiting www.SaveTheArctic.org.

Production Begins On ‘The Seventh Son’

Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that production is officially underway on Legendary Pictures’ fantasy action adventure, ‘The Seventh Son’, under the direction of award-winning filmmaker Sergei Bodrov. View the synopsis below:

In a time long past, an evil is about to be unleashed that will reignite the war between the forces of the supernatural and humankind once more. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance. Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory.

In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. Now he has only until the next full moon to do what usually takes years: train his new apprentice, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Man’s only hope lies in the seventh son of a seventh son.

‘The Seventh Son’ will be shot entirely on location in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
