From visionary director Robert Eggers comes The Northman, an action-filled epic that follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge his father’s murder.

Boasting an all-star cast that includes a combination of familiar faces and talents from Eggers’ previous work. Eggers co-wrote the screenplay with Icelandic poet and novelist Sjón, one of the highest regarded Icelandic poets and lyricists working today. The majority of the film was shot in Belfast, Ireland (film crews were spotted at the Antrim Hills near the seaport and market town of Larne).

Vikings tap into our lost sense of adventure and daring, which is why The Northman is so eagerly awaited. Historically known for being one of the most militarily capable people in ancient history, Vikings are famous for overcoming overwhelming odds.
