Long postponed because of the Covid pandemic, “The Northman” has finally finished production. Robert Eggers’ next film, starring Alexander Skarsgård as a Viking determined to take revenge, is revealed with an impressive trailer.
A fight of Vikings in The Northman
With The Northman, director Robert Eggers tackles the universe of the Vikings. The film is set in the 10th century and follows Amleth, a Nordic prince who witnessed the murder of his father and his entire family in his youth. He will run away from these assassins and grow up with the desire for revenge. Once an adult, the hour has come …
The film is unveiled with a particularly violent trailer of great visual beauty. The natural settings are captivating and the director’s staging both disturbing and precise. The action sequences are impressive and bloody. And the magnificent photography (not surprising when you know the director). A film that promises to be brutal and which we let you discover the images with the trailer, in an article.
In the cast of Robert Eggers’ film
If we are interested in The Northman, it is above all for its director. Robert Eggers had marked the spirits The Witch. It is also with this film that we discovered Anya Taylor-Joy, which is precisely present in this new film. Between the two, the filmmaker made a radical proposition with The Lighthouse, worn by Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. And after his third feature film, the director will tackle Nosferatu.
For The Northman, he clearly showed great ambition and was able to count, once again, on a beautiful cast. So, in addition to Anya Taylor-Joy, The Northman consists ofAlexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke and again Willem Dafoe.
For his role, Alexander Skarsgård once again made his physique speak. The actor impresses on these images. Even though the trailer shows a lot (too much?), We can’t wait to get to see the film as a whole. For that, it will be necessary to be patient. The Northman is announced for the month of April in the United States. In France, if all goes well, Universal is set to release it on May 18, 2022..
