Reign of Fire Overview

In present-day London, twelve-year-old Quinn watches as his mother, a construction engineer, inadvertently wakes an enormous fire-breathing beast from its centuries-long slumber. Twenty years later, much of the world has been scarred by the beast and its offspring. The dragons are extremely intelligent, highly evolved... and they don't like sharing the planet.

As a fire chief, Quinn (Bale) is responsible for warding off the beasts and keeping a small community alive as they eke out a meager existence. Into their midst comes a hotshot American, Van Zan (McConaughey), who says he has a way to kill the beasts and save mankind - a way Quinn's never seen done.
