“Narnia: The Dawn Treader” trailer makes its way online


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Sequel installments of major movie franchises aren’t supposed to fly so far under the radar. Yet I wasn’t even aware that a third film in the “Chronicles of Narnia” franchise had been greenlit — let alone filmed and heading towards theaters — until I saw posters for it at our local multiplex when I went earlier this week to see “Toy Story 3.”

Sure enough, the financial disappointments of the second “Narnia” (“Prince Caspian” pulled in an underwhelming $141 million against a reported $225 million budget) hasn’t scared Fox Walden off the series entirely. And now fans of the mystical franchise will travel once more to the land created by C.S. Lewis for “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.” It opens in theaters on Dec. 10.

With a release date looming, Fox Walden is starting to unveil details. Michael Apted directs the film, which will be released in 3D and 2D. Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Ben Barnes, Will Poulter, and Liam Neeson’s voice all return. In this new story, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, accompanied by their cousin, Eustace Scrubb, find themselves joining forces with Prince Caspian to ride a massive ship named the Dawn Treader.

This morning, a trailer hit the Web. Check out the look of Apted’s “Narnia” over at ComingSoon.net.

What do you think? Can the “Narnia” series rebound with “Dawn Treader,” or will Fox be throwing money at a franchise film fans have abandoned?

    This is a badly written article.

    1. What is Fox Walden? They aren’t one company
    2. “….or will Fox throwing money at a franchise film fans have abandoned?”. What kind of crappy grammar is that? Do you even proof read your own work?

    Your figures are a bit misleading, as Prince Caspian make back its costs plus a small profit with the international box office intake. Your figure is just for the domestic box office. It’s also done well on DVD. Disney most definitely did not lose money on Caspian.

    I’m personally looking foward to the movie, and I hope they continue with the series after this one.

    The film made tons of money after foreign box office and DVD, and Disney dumped it prematurely. Will Poulter does not “return” — he plays new character Eustace Scrubb. Do you people do any research at all before your write your articles in which you feign expertise?
