The Northman, A Viking epic coming to Theaters
The Northman is a Viking epic directed and co-written by Robert Eggers. Eggers co wrote this script with the Icelandic Poet and novelist Sjón to make this film more culturally accurate.
Alexander Skarsgård got the lead role of Amleth, He is a Viking Prince who is set to avenge the death of his father. Amleth is also in a quest to save his mother. He witness the death of his father from the hands of Fjölnir (Claes Bang). The Viking Prince grew up swearing he will avenge his father, Kill Fjölnir and save his mother.
Skarsgård is a great casting because not only he looks like a Viking. He is Swedish and that makes him an actual descendant of the Vikings because he is from a Scandinavian country. Skarsgård’s experience of playing Tarzan in the past would be a help because he is mostly shirtless in this movie.
The Northman has an all-star cast! Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Björk, and Willem Dafoe are part of this upcoming epic. This film got its inspiration from ancient Norse history. The costumes look more historically accurate than what we do from the TV drama Vikings.
It is a bit weird that Alexander Skarsgård and Nicole Kidman, played the role of Husband and wife in the film Big Little Lies. Now they are playing the role of a mother and son. They will be needing to trim down the sexual onscreen chemistry they have in the past but I know they can pull it off. His love interest in this film will be the younger actress Anya Taylor-Joy She is known for her roles in and The Queen’s Gambit, Emma and Last Night in Soho
You will have to wait longer before you can watch the Northman because it’s coming to theaters on April 22, 2022.
