Go Behind-The-Scenes Of Robert Eggers’ THE NORTHMAN
With a week to go before Universal Pictures open the latest feature from visionary filmmaker Robert Eggers (THE LIGHTHOUSE, THE WITCH), THE NORTHMAN, in Australian Cinemas on April 21, we’re pleased to bring you this behind-the-scenes featurette titled ‘Becoming a Viking’.
Young Prince Amleth is on the cusp of becoming a man when his father is brutally murdered by his uncle, who kidnaps the boy’s mother. Fleeing his island kingdom by boat, the child vows revenge. Two decades later, Amleth is a Viking berserker raiding Slavic villages, where a seeress reminds him of his vow: avenge his father, save his mother, kill his uncle. Traveling on a slave ship to Iceland, Amleth infiltrates his uncle’s farm with the help of Olga, an enslaved Slavic woman — and sets out to honor his vow.
THE NORTHMAN features an ensemble cast including Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe and Björk.
