‘The Northman’ with Alexander Skarsgård: Viking Vengeance at Epic Scale



“The Northman” is a bloody Scandinavian Viking’s tale of revenge.  The film follows  Prince Amleth (played by Alexander Skarsgård) who vows to avenge his father’s death at the hands of his uncle.

While, perhaps, not everyone waits with baited breath for the next bloody Viking saga, this particular outing might have a shot at a wider audience due to the elevated filmmaking and stunning visuals.

The trailer (below) will give you a taste of this, and based on how you feel once having viewed it you may have a better idea of why you might want to visit a theater (later this month, only in theaters) to get the full treatment.

Along with Skarsgård comes a hard-hitting cast including: Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hake (plays King Aurvandil), Anya Taylor-Joy, Claes Bang and William Dafoe (witch). 

Reviews for the film, directed by  Robert Egger, are coming out now, since the theatrical release of the film will hit screens at the end of the month. Rotten Tomatoes calls it “bold, unflinching and visually breathtaking”. Eggers is known for the historical fables / period setting pieces that push the genre, such as in his previous films, for example, “The Lighthouse” and “The Witch”. 

“The Northman” is set for theatrical release starting April 22.
