Cinénygma festival opening

The six-day festival shows the luxembourgish co-production of “George and the Dragon” as a world premiere

On Sunday evening the 8th edition of Cinénygma Film Festival opened with the presence of the Grand Duke Henri and the Grande Duchess Maria Teresa in the cinema Utopolis. On that occasion the luxembourgish co production “George and the Dragon” was shown. The fantastic adventure film was mainly shot in Luxembourg, among other things in the studios of The Carousel Picture Company in Dommeldange and at Vianden castle.

The Grand Duke had visited the film team there two years ago and had met the main actors Patrick Swayze, Val Kilmer, James Purefoy, Michael Clarke Duncan, Piper Perabo and Jean-Pierre Castaldi.

“George and the Dragon” plays in the year 1101 in England and inspires on the legend of Saint George: the dragon slayer is searching a princess who has been kidnapped by a dragon.

Yesterday evening the grand ducal couple was welcomed by the director and producer Tom Reeve, by the luxembourgish co producer Romain Schroeder, by Cinénygma-manager Romain Roll and by Nico Simon, administrator from Utopia S.A.

Among the guests were Prince Louis, EU Commissioner Viviane Reding and the Minister of Communication François Biltgen.

The “Cinénygma Luxembourg International Film Festival” will show about 20 films mainly attributed to the “cinema fantastique” until next Friday. In the Cinémathèque in the city there will be a retrospective with films of the legendary “Hammer” studios.

On 2nd April the festival will close in Utopolis at 19.30 with the awards ceremony (“Méliès d’Argent”, “Grand Prix Cinénygma”, “Prix du meilleur court métrage”) and from 22.30 on with the 10th edition of the “Night of the Fantastic Film”.

Friday 7th February 2003: Hello Everyone!

I've just been speaking to the Casting Director of George and the Dragon who has been keeping the Official Fan Club informed about progress on the film.

The Director of the film was back on location in Scotland last week in the middle of all that terrible weather we have had here!!! He and a small unit were filming some additional shots for a scene at the beginning of the film. They were back at the lake to shoot some extra background material that was required for the special effects team.

The team in charge of their special effects are really doing very well on this unique part of the project and the Producers are very very happy with what they have seen so far of the dragon design development!

Because of the extra time that such a complex project is taking, it is more likely that the film will not be released around Easter as originally planned. The release and distribution details are still under discussion and it might well be May 2003 or later before it is released.

Sincere thanks go to the Carousel Picture Company who have been so generous with their help in keeping us informed - thanks to all the team! When the special effects are completed, we should have more information to pass along to you, so watch this space!!!

In friendship, Margaret.

Saturday 14th September 2002: We have heard from the Carousel Picture Company in Luxembourg that they are in the process of making a deal with a US studio for a theatrical release of "George and the Dragon" at the earliest around Easter 2003. The film will be released first in the United States with a European release to follow closely after that. Watch this space for more news as we get it!

Tuesday 28th May 2002: The editing of George and the Dragon is still going according to plan. It should be completed during the summer and then the Post-production team will move on to the Music score and sound effects. As we mentioned before, the design of the dragon and the CGI effects take a long time to do. They are the last things to be put together in the film and may not be completed until October. A new promotional reel for George and the Dragon was prepared for showing at the Cannes Film Festival to raise awareness of the film and one of the daily magazines for the Festival in Cannes showed the movie still from the film featuring Patrick, Piper Perabo and Jean-Pierre Castaldi with the Dragon's egg (you can see it on the movie's official site at The interest and excitement for the film is increasing!!

30th April 2002: More news from the set of George and the Dragon in Luxembourg (and here in Bonnie Scotland!). Today and tomorrow (Tuesday 30th April and Wednesday 1st May) there is a small unit filming at Loch Ness in Scotland. This will conclude the filming part of this great project! Patrick's part in the shooting schedule finished up the beginning of April but the Company still had a few scenes to shoot and that will be completed this week. Although this is not a definite estimate, the editing process should take place during the months of May and June in Luxembourg and England and the special effects process will continue until about October. They are still working on the fantastic dragon which will be amazing!
