Recently, a new trailer for the movie “The Northman” has been exposed. The film is directed by Robert Eggers, who has filmed “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse”.
In the notice, the prince saw his father being killed with his own eyes. He vowed to avenge his father and embarked on a road of war.
The whole trailer is full of weird and weird style. In terms of texture, “The Northman” is very similar to a mashup of “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse”.
Especially the hand-held photography and close-up shots that Robert Eggers is good at, it adds an extremely unpredictable premonition to the film.
The story of “The Northman” focuses on a “revenge war” of the Vikings in Iceland in the 10th century.
The film tells the story of the Nordic prince, played by Alexander Skarsgård, embarking on a journey of revenge for his murdered father.
Interestingly, “The Northman” was Alexander Skarsgård’s initiative to ask Robert Eggers to explain the creative story, and then the film was successfully established.
The script of “The Northman” was co-written by Robert Eggers and Icelandic poet and novelist Sjón.
In “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse”, Robert Eggers will do some preliminary work alone. But for such a large-scale movie, he himself said that this is impossible.
“The scale is too big, there are too many shooting locations and things. I can’t do everything myself, nor can I understand every prop. This is the challenge of this new movie.”
In terms of actors, Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Ethan Hawke and Anya Taylor-Joy have all participated.
It can be seen that most of the leading actors in “The Northman” and the director Igus have previously collaborated.
