From visionary director Robert Eggers (The Lighthouse, The VVitch) comes The Northman, an action-filled epic that follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge his father’s murder. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Björk, and Willem Dafoe.

Critics are saying...
“A guttural, primal grunt of a movie that is all raging testosterone and incendiary machismo. And I loved nearly every minute of it.” Globe And Mail

“This is intimate, culturally rich storytelling on a brutally epic scale. Skarsgård is in his element, bolstered by a sensational cast throwing themselves headfirst into Eggers and Sjón’s awe-inspiring vision. A cinematic saga worthy of the ancestors.” Empire

“The Northman is a horribly violent, nihilistic and chaotic story about the endless cycle of violence, the choice between loving your friends and hating your enemies – which turns out to be no choice at all, and the thread of fate down which masculinity’s delicious toxin drips. It’s entirely outrageous, with some epic visions of the flaring cosmos. I couldn’t look away.” The Gaurdian
“…this is the kind of filmmaking that rips you out of your body so hard that you’re liable to forget what year it is. In a movie era that’s been defined by compromise, “The Northman” rides into theatres with the fury of a valkyrie — it’s the rare studio epic that would sooner die than submit to modern precepts of how it should be told. While so many people in the industry are scrambling to change their fates, Eggers reminds us just how awesome it can feel to conquer them.” IndieWire
Eggers explains to IndieWire his meticulous approach to recreating the Viking era, dealing with studio notes, and why he believes more filmmakers should be so bold. Click here for details
