Robert Eggers and co-writer Sjón (Dancer in the Dark) tackle a Norse Viking saga in The Northman. With Alexander Skarsgård leading the way and a supporting cast featuring Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Anna Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke and Björk, this 22nd of April 2022 release is shaping up to be one of the must sees of next year.
The official synopsis notes: “THE NORTHMAN is an action-filled epic that follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge his father’s murder.”
With Eggers undoubtedly asserting himself as one of the most exciting working filmmakers through previous hits such as The Witch and The Lighthouse, expectations are high for this visceral Viking epic. Not to mention the fact that the film contains one of the most interesting ensemble casts in recent years – need we say anymore than Björk returning for her first high profile film role since 2000.
