A film adaptation of the first book in the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', ''Literature/{{Eragon}}'', was made in 2006, starring Creator/JeremyIrons, Ed Speelers, and Creator/JohnMalkovich. Like ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'', it was very loosely based on the book. A [[{{VideoGame/Eragon}} video game]] based off the movie was released a month in advance. Currently there are no plans for sequels, although several petitions to remake the film have since been created.

** The characters that are dwarves or elves in the book all look completely human. Even the Urgals look like human barbarians.

The fact that Eragon threw it means he probably ''tried'' to invoke it, but Durza didn't let it happen. Hence "Defied" and not "Averted".

* ActorAllusion: This isn't the only time Creator/JeremyIrons played [[Disney/TheLionKing a character]] who killed one of the main character's fathers. However, given what [[AbusiveParents that father was like]], not to mention what he did to his dragon, Brom pretty much had a very good reason for doing so. He's also seems to be looking to bring about the death of the king, again.

* EnforcedMethodActing: Eragon's surprise when Brom comes up behind him when Eragon is looking through Brom's books for information about dragons. * HeroicSacrifice / TakingTheBullet / ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Brom ends up being impaled by a spear sent by Durza that was meant for Eragon and dies from the wounds]].

* StillbornFranchise: The movie was a critical failure and a financial disappointment. It also made it '''impossible''' to create a film of the second book due to discontinuity created by the first film, not to mention the number of ignored characters that would need to be introduced.
