It’s no secret, I love Robert Eggers’ The Northman. It’s a brazen, bold, bloody Viking revenge flick that I intend to see multiple times when it opens on April 22nd. But I’m not the only one. Reviews all across the board have been glowing, and Focus Features wants to make sure you know about it. A new trailer has dropped featuring quotes loading with enthusiastic, glowing praise.
Starring Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Björk, and Willem Dafoe, the film offers Skarsgard a career-best performance, but also Eggers his most approachable work yet.
Here’s the synopsis: From visionary director Robert Eggers comes THE NORTHMAN, an action-filled epic that follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge his father’s murder. With an all-star cast that includes Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Björk, and Willem Dafoe.
