Upon the discovery of a mysterious chain of uncharted islands hidden in the Indian ocean, a ragtag group of scientists, explorers and humanitarians have been sent to explore and survey the area of the islands. But soon after arriving, they realize that the islands have been claimed by a multi-billion dollar mining corporation accompanied by a private military contractor team for security, has been working there since learning that the entire subterranean of the islands is made up of highly valuable minerals. Despite the scientists' trying to warn them seeing that they don't know what is living on these islands, the corporation arrogantly assure them that there's nothing to worry about seeing that the islands are desolate and seemingly devoid of any life. But the one thing that both parties are completely unprepared for is that the islands are home to a savage and brutal race of highly evolved, extremely intelligent and unbelievably powerful fire-breathing dragons that have laid dormant beneath the earth for millions of years and the activity from both human parties have awakened them. Now, trapped on the islands with absolutely no means of escaping and being relentlessly hunted, both parties are forced to work together as they try to find whatever way possible to get off the islands alive and survive against their vicious inferno-breathing predators.
MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi creature violence and action/peril, disturbing images, and some language.
(Inspirations - Kong: Skull Island, Reign Of Fire, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Aliens.)
(Side notes: To put things in perspective for you, this title is the result of a small complaint I have about how dragons have been portrayed in the media in recent years, while I do think those dragons have been done well and definitely have served their purpose in the movies and TV shows they were featured in, but what I feel is lacking from those dragons is the fear factor, I just simply don't think dragons in film/tv nowadays are scary anymore and I'm kind of disappointed by that. So I wanted to create a movie idea that if it were ever to be made in real life, it would've hopefully made dragons scary again, and this is the best I could think up.)
