Including Herman Melville’s classic Moby Dick. At least, that’s what the forces behind Age of the Dragons are betting on. Director Ryan Little has transformed the 19th-century search for the great white whale into a medieval search for the great white dragon. A plot description:
Set in a medieval realm where Captain Ahab [Danny Glover!] 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 is 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.
Check out the trailer below, but fair warning: you’ll be wanting to yell “Dragon!” apropos of nothing for the rest of the afternoon.
