Focus Features has released the first trailer for Robert Eggers’ epic Viking revenge thriller The Northman.

Focus’ official description calls the film “an epic revenge thriller that explores how far a Viking prince will go to seek justice for his murdered father.”

Unlike Robert Egger’s previous films, 2015’s The Witch and 2019’s The Lighthouse, which were far more quieter and more intimate , the trailer shows off an action-filled epic that follows a young Viking prince on a quest to avenge his father’s murder at the hands of his uncle.

The Northman stars Alexander Skarsgård as a Viking prince forced into exile when his father, the king (Ethan Hawke), is murdered. He spends his life waiting for the right moment to get revenge and reclaim the throne. A very formidable and buff Skarsgard is joined by Taylor-Joy, who says she can break men’s minds. The dark, action-packed trailer shows shots of Skarsgard leaping from a wall to attack a man on horseback, catching a spear in mid-air and hurling it back at the enemy. There are huge battles, bigger emotions, plus plenty of stabbing and witchcraft.

The film also stars Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe winner Nicole Kidman (The HoursBig Little LiesBeing the Ricardos), Oscar nominees Ethan Hawke (BoyhoodThe Black PhoneThe Good Lord Bird) and Willem Dafoe (At Eternity’s GateSpider-Man: No Way HomeNightmare Alley), Claes Bang (The SquareThe Burnt Orange Heresy), and Grammy/Oscar-nominated Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk (Dancer in the Dark)and several “Game of Thrones” alumni, including Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who played the massive Mountain on HBO’s series, Kate Dickie and Ralph Ineson.

Eggers is reuniting with several of his previous collaborators on “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse,” including Taylor-Joy, Dafoe, Dickie and Ineson. In addition to directing, Eggers co-wrote the film with the Icelandic poet and novelist Sjön, who frequently works with Björk, and also recently co-penned The Lamb, which is Iceland’s entry into the International Feature Oscar race.

Principle photography began in Northern Ireland in March 2020 and was halted almost immediately on account of the COVID-19 pandemic. Production resumed that August.

Focus Features will release the film, which is produced by New Regency, Lars Knudsen and Mark Huffman.

The Northman is scheduled to open next year on April 22.
