The newest trailer for Valhalla Rising has been released on Apple. The film is directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Pusher Trilogy) and stars Mads Mikkelsen (Clash of the Titans, Casino Royale). Check it out below.
Plot: Nicolas Winding Refn, the acclaimed director of BRONSON and THE PUSHER TRILOGY, strikes again with his bone-crushingly brutal Viking epic starring Mads Mikkelsen (CASINO ROYALE, FLAME & CITRON). This stylized knockout premiered to acclaim at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals and is destined to become a cult classic. An epic tale of war, vengeance and redemption, VALHALLA RISING is a provocative collision of art and action and an unmissable summer movie event. For years, One-Eye, a mute warrior of supernatural strength, has been held prisoner – forced to fight for his life and the amusement of his pagan slavers. Aided by a boy, he finds his moment, furiously kills his captors and together they escape, beginning an odyssey through an unknown land. After falling in with a band of Vikings, One-Eye and his young companion find they must confront terrible fate in the quest for their freedom.
I’ve seen the film twice now and still prefer Bronson, but it is beautiful with an excellent performance from Mads Mikkelson. I’d highly recommend just checking it out once.
Valhalla Rising hits theaters July 16th.
