In the last European Film Market in Berlin, Corrado Azzollini’s Draka Distribution bought the distribution all rights for Italy and Spain of the movie Arthur & Merlin from the International distributor Carnaby. Arthur and Merlin is a colossal, UK produced, first feature of the director Marco Van Belle. The movie, an entangling fantasy in the wake of The Lord of the Rings” and “Games of Thrones” is inspired by the same Celtic myth that Tolkien read as a young man, the epic fight of good against evil, telling now as never seen before the story of two icons of the celtic miths.
In Dark Ages Britain, a time of myth and magic, a Saxon force from the East attacks the Celtic people. But the vicious Saxons are not the only ones who threat the Celtic face. The powerful druid, Aberthol, secretly plot to destroy them too. He controls the ailing King Vortigern and leads the Celts to their deaths. But hope is not lost. Arthur, a banished warior, and Merlin, a heremit wizard, embark on an heroic quest to stop Aberthol and save their people, before it becomes a memory scattered in the mith.
