Described as “an action-filled epic that follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge his father’s murder,” The Northman came exclusively to theaters on April 22, 2022.

Meagan wrote in her review for BD, “The purposeful but brutal violence meted out at every step of Amleth’s mission won’t be for the weak-stomached. All of it creates a detailed and rich tapestry of Viking life.” Meagan adds, “The beating heart of The Northman is a familiar tale of revenge, but in Eggers’ hands, it’s at least deeply engrossing.”

From acclaimed director Robert Eggers comes The Northman starring Alexander Skarsgard, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Björk. The film is directed by Robert Eggers, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Icelandic poet and novelist Sjón. Producers are Lars Knudsen, Mark Huffam and New Regency.
