Bad-Ass ‘Age Of The Dragons’ Trailer. Think ‘Moby Dick’ But With Dragons!!

Wow, check out this trailer “Age of the Dragons” a live-action adaptation of Herman Melville’s classic novel “Moby Dick,” but instead of a giant whale, it’s with a dragon! Why you ask? Because dragons are awesome and they can spit fire!

Bringing all this awesomeness to life is director Ryan Little (Saints of Soldiers) and the film will also star Danny Glover as Captain Ahab! Although I’m not sure if he’ll remain a “captain.” in this film.

Here’s the official synopsis:
“Age of the Dragons is an adaptation of Herman Melville’s classic novel Moby Dick. Set in a medieval realm where Captain Ahab and crew hunt dragons for the vitriol that powers their world, Ishmael, a charismatic harpooner joins their quest. Ahab’s adopted daughter Rachel, beautiful and tough, runs the hunting vessel. Ahab’s obsession is to seek revenge on a great “White Dragon” that slaughtered his family when he was young and left his body scarred and mauled, drives the crew deeper into the heart of darkness. In the White Dragon’s lair Ahab’s secrets are revealed and Rachel must choose between following him on his dark quest or escaping to a new life with Ishmael.”

This movie took me by surprise, but so far it looks decent. It may not be the next “Avatar” but it’s definitely gotten my interest.
