Over the weekend I go this new exclusive clip sent to me for Valhalla Rising Starring Mads Mikkleson from Vertigo Films, I posted it on my Cinehouse movie blog but here’s the post and clip as well:
Recieved this exclusive clip from Vertigo Films over the weekend for Valhalla Rising directed (and co -wrote) by Nicolas Winding Refn. who also directed the Pusher Trilogy and Bronson. Movie stars Mads Mikkleson (Casino Royale, Pusher Trilogy and soon Clash of The Titans remake) as the movies leading warrior One-eye. Both men have worked together in previous movies and every director has their favourite lead as does every actor has their favourite directors.
Even though we have seen Soloman Kane we havent really seen a action packed epic actually based on people of our previous history and in this case vikings. A story which isn’t covered up with over the top CGI but what you get is honest story telling with does have the brutality mixed in with (real) stunning backdrops.
Vahalla Rising did the rounds at many of the 2009 film festivals including London returning with positive reviews. The movie will be released in UK & Ireland by Vertigo and no release date yet confirmed but the movie will be released in Denmark this coming Friday, 5th March.
