A new trailer has been released for the action adventure Norwegian film Ragnarok, and it looks like it's going to make for a really fun summer flick. The story revolves around a group of explorers who go in search for a legendary treasure, and in the process come across a mythical monstrous sea creature. The movie was directed by Mikkel Sandemose and it stars Pål Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki) and Sofia Helin. Here's the synopsis:
Archeologist Sigurd Svendsen (Pål Sverre Hagen) has for years been obsessed with the Oseberg Viking ship. The only inscription found on the ship is the enigmatic ´man knows little` written in runes. Sigurd is sure that the Oseberg ship contains the answer to the mystery of Ragnarok, the end of days in Norse mythology. When his friend Allan finds similar runes on a stone from the north of Norway, Sigurd becomes convinced that the runes are in fact a treasure map. Together they mount an expedition group and their adventure leads to “No man’s Land” between Norway and Russia, which has been deserted for decades. Here Sigurd learns the true meaning of the runes – a secret more terrifying than he could possibly imagine.
The movie is set to be released on August 15th.
