EXCLUSIVE Dawn of the Dragonslayer featurette

January 26th, 2012 by Marc Comments

FTN and The Big Picture brings you this Special 5 minute featurette about Anchor Bay’s award winning “Dawn of the Dragonslayer”.

Will (Richard McWilliams) and his father live a simple and pastoral life in the mountains, unconcerned with the goings-on of the neighbouring lowlands. When Will’s father is killed by a dragon, Will must journey down the mountain and use a mysterious family connection from years earlier to start squiring for Baron Sterling (Ian Cullen), a once-wealthy land owner and knight. Unwelcome for his backward, mountain ways, Will is put to work on the struggling farm. He soon befriends Sterling’s headstrong daughter Kate (Nicola Posener), and the two of them begin working together to uncover the secrets of their families’ connection and to prepare Will for his final battle with the dragon, which he will aim to avenge his father’s death and prove himself a man.

This is the first Dragon movie ever directed by a woman, and director Anne K. Black collected the film’s first award at Bleedfest in Los Angeles, where the film won Best Fantasy Film.

We sat down with rising star Nicola Posener and veteran actor Ian Cullen to find about more about this Special FX extravaganza!

The movie is on Bluray & DVD on February 13th

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
