If you love your Vikings or fantasy movies, strap in.
Robert Eggers latest flick The Northman’ will open in cinemas on April 21, starring Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Björk and Anya Taylor-Joy in a violent take on the story that inspired Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
It follows the story of Prince Amleth who is on the verge of becoming a man when his father is brutally murdered by his uncle, and kidnaps (and marries) his mother. Big oof.
The film takes place two decades later, where Amleth is now a Viking who is obsessed with saving his mother, killing his uncle and avenging his father.
It’s been described as a revenge-horror… which one reviewer saying he ‘couldn’t look away’.
