We have the first teaser trailer for director Roland Joffe’s (The Killing Fields) upcoming epic, There Be Dragons. The film tells the story of “two childhood friends who become separated during the political conflict to find themselves on opposite sides as war erupts.” Rodrigo Santoro, Olga Kurylenko, Derek Jacobi, Wes Bentley, Charlie Cox, Dougray Scott, and Golshifteh Farahani star.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to read a plot synopsis for the film.
I don’t really have an opinion about the trailer or the film since the teaser trailer is one of those kinds of trailers where you just get quick cuts of a lot of stuff happening while you are trying to figure out what exactly the movie is about. I’m hoping that it’s just a badly cut teaser and that we’ll get a better look at the film when a full theatrical trailer is released.
There Be Dragons will be released sometime next spring. Here’s the official synopsis:
Set during the turmoil of the Spanish Civil War (early 1900s), Dragons tells the story of two childhood friends who become separated during the political conflict to find themselves on opposite sides as war erupts. One chooses the path of peace and becomes a priest while the other chooses the life of a soldier driven by jealousy and revenge. Each will struggle to find the power of forgiveness over the forces that tore their lives and friendship apart.
