Note: There are no dragons in this movie. I don't know why it's called There Be Dragons (someone care to explain?) but a new teaser trailer arrived online months ago but is just now circulating so I thought we'd feature it now. There Be Dragons is an epic action-adventure-drama set against the Spanish Civil War based on the true story of St. Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer, the founder of Opus Dei. His own epic story is paired against the lives of fictional characters and the action background of the armed conflict. This has a big cast including: Charlie Cox, Wes Bentley, Olga Kurylenko, Rodrigo Santoro, Lily Cole and Dougray Scott. Enjoy!
Watch the first teaser trailer for Roland Joffé's There Be Dragons:
Traces the lives of two men, Josemaria Escriva (Cox) and Manolo Torres (Bentley), childhood friends who are separated by the political upheaval of pre-war Spain and end up on opposite sides once war erupts.
There Be Dragons is both written and directed by Oscar nominated British filmmaker Roland Joffé, of The Killing Fields, The Mission, City of Joy, The Scarlet Letter, Captivity and You and I. This was filmed mostly in Spain and Argentina last year and is currently in post-production. I'm not sure when we'll be seeing this considering it doesn't have a US distributor yet, but we'll keep you updated if you're interested. Thoughts?
