In the previous Backbrain post, we revealed the Asylum’s modernised take on Herman Melville’s iconic novel, Moby Dick. Now we get the first trailer for Ryan Little’s draconic remix of the same story, starring Danny Glover as the medieval dragon-hunting Ahab-equivalent. (For more details, check out the article on our sub-site Undead Brainspasm.)
Age of the Dragons [aka Dragon Fire] (US-2010; dir. Ryan Little)
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 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.
