Trailer Bulletin: Dragons, Magic & "Eragon"

by | September 15, 2006 | Comments

OK, so it looks a lot like "Lord of the Rings," and sure, even "Eragon" sounds a lot like "Aragorn," but after reading Christopher Paolini’s very fine adventure novel, I’m willing to forgive a little familiarity. Stefen Fangmeier‘s "Eragon" opens on December 15th, but you can see the brand new trailer right now.

Click here for the trailer, and good luck with that. It’s hosted at AOL Moviefone.

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."

"Eragon" stars newcomer Edward Speleers in the title role, and the supporting cast is filled with names like John Malkovich, Jeremy Irons, Robert Carlyle, Djimon Hounsou, and Sienna Guillory.
