A $ 90 million Viking revenge, so it might be called The Northmanbut it would be an understatement. The new action film by director Robert Eggers, out on April 21st, promises to be the most spectacular of the year and not only for the battles, the scenic landscapes of Ireland (between stormy seas and perched castles, covered with snow) but also for the remarkable cast. Three names, to begin with: Alexander Skarsgård as the protagonist, Nicole Kidman and Anya Taylor-Joy, star of The Queen of Chess on Netflix. But there is also Ethan Hawke who plays the father of the protagonist in the opening scenes and then Willem Dafoe and even Björk.
“It’s a Viking saga with magic, swords and mysticism,” Eggers explained. “People think they know the Vikings. They think about the Kirk Douglas movie Viking, think of cartoon kids in horned helmets or certain TV shows where Vikings dress up as sci-fi rock stars. This is something very different “. “I will avenge you, father. I will save you, mother. I will kill you, Fjölnir! ” repeats the protagonist, Amleth (Skarsgård) as a mantra from the moment his uncle (Claes Bang) kills the king, his father, when he is small to take over the kingdom (a classic, can we say it?).

Then, several years fast forward and the Viking prince is still determined to deliver on his promise of revenge, return to his homeland, save his mother (Kidman) and kill his uncle. In the attempt he will be helped by Olga (Taylor-Joy), a woman who can enchant the minds of men and will have to overcome bloody battles and face magical creatures (Björk has been chosen to play a witch-prophetess).
We can also expect some detail between the horror and the disturbing, given the previous works of the director as The Witchof 2015, and The Lighthouse, 2019. But above all there will be action. According to the Executive Editor of Film of IndieWire, Kate Erbland, watching The Northman it passes regularly «from” O my God yes “to” O my god no “». which is exactly what we are looking for in a film, right?
