When disillusioned Swedish knight Antonius Block returns home from the Crusades to find his country in the grips of the Black Death, he challenges Death to a chess match for his life. Tormented by the belief that God does not exist, Block sets off on a journey, meeting up with traveling players Jof and his wife, Mia, and becoming determined to evade Death long enough to commit one redemptive act while he still lives.

Teaser released... this is the first I've heard of this as well. Bit of a mixed feeling about this one. Stars Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore. Out January 2014, even though IMDb has it pegged ...

The movie didnt really give a groundbreaking view on this, Death said he knew nothing so Bergman didnt really give that much philosophy in my opinion.

The interplay between the two (both directly and in the omniscient eye of the camera) and between Block and the cloaked figure of Death form the primary subtext of The Seventh Seal.

To make matters worse, the first person to welcome him home is Death.
