Looking for movie featuring Dragons vs. Navy (or Army, but the trailer featured battleship trying to shoot the dragons down).

Trailer also showed a dogfight between helicopters and dragons, capping (on the trailer) with a dragon setting a Blackhawk's blades on fire.

I saw that trailer too and then could not find it again , but stumbled across it today ,it is called Crimson Skies

Only other info i could find on this is that it was originaly called Dragon seige but your guess is as good as mine as to wether its movie or game

  • Can you add some more information on this? All links on IMDB point to the very unrelated (and very awesome) XBox game from the early 2000's.

  • This looks like to be a game and not a movie. Maybe the OP was confused, and you're right. But as far as movies go, this looks doubtful. Jul 30, 2014 at 4:54

Sounds similar to Dragon Wars : D-War, although I haven't found a specific trailer (of which there are quite a few) with a Blackhawk's blades on fire. Plenty of dragons destroying helicopters in other ways though. Here is a short trailer, and here is a longer trailer. Some of the dialogue in the longer trailer is Korean, but the movie itself is mostly in English.


  • i guess so it would be D-war Jul 3, 2014 at 4:02
  • @KevinTheKnight Maybe, we'll see. If you have a different guess, post it. My answer failed to meet all the criteria, and it's been too long since I watched the movie to remember if it had a helicopter with the blades on fire. It fits enough that it's worth a try. If you've got a guess, by all means, please post. Jul 3, 2014 at 6:13
  • No, it'd not D-War. All helicopters that appear are Apaches, for one.

This sounds very like the British film Reign of Fire, which included several scenes of fire-breathing dragons versus helicopters.

The trailer is here and although there are various helicopter shots there's nothing specifically with the blades on fire.

    Except Reign of Fire is 12 years old, which doesn't fit the timeframe the questioner added after you posted this one. Awesome movie though, and 100,000 times better than D-war.

  • That is true.If it helps, the movie was released this year. Or last one, at the latest.

  • Reign of Fire is only good with the RiffTrax commentary, in my opinion. Jul 30, 2014 at 4:58
  • I like hearing it at least once without the RiffTrax before going wild with it.

MainStay Productions released a trailer on YouTube last year, about a movie project they are working on with BluFire Studios, ostensibly called Crimson Skies. The premise is that a volcanic island erupts, releasing thousands of dragons from millenia-long slumber, that attack a small fleet of Navy vessels.

I checked on both MainStay and BluFire's websites, neither of which make any mention of the project, which makes me think that the trailer may simply be a "pitch demo" to try and find a studio willing to underwrite it. There is no other mention of the movie, other than the video, that I can find.

Of course, this may also be just another elaborate YouTube hoax.
