It looks like the Norwegians have made another great movie! I loved Kon-Tiki, but this new film dives into some fun, supernatural legends. It's an action adventure thriller called Ragnarok. Here's what the movie is about,
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 was directed by Mikkel Sandemose, and stars Pål Sverre Hagen, Nicolai Cleve Broch, Bjørn Sundquist and Sofia Helin. Magnolia Pictures will release the film in the U.S. in October of this year. I imagine it will be a limited release though. Enjoy the trailer!
