One of this winter’s biggies that I’m most looking forward to is "Eragon," mainly because I’ve always been a sucker for the Epic Adventure genre … but also because I just started reading the book. Reading and enjoying.
Bare bones synopsis: "A boy named Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest. At first, he thinks it’s a lucky discovery, something that will bring meat to his poor family for the winter. Instead, it brings a dragon hatchling, and Eragon is soon thrust into a world of magic and power through which he and the dragon must navigate."
Opening on December 15th, "Eragon" marks the directorial debut of Stefen Fangmeier. Joining newcomer Edward Speleers will be John Malkovich, Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Irons, Robert Carlyle, and Sienna Guillory.
