Awesome Teaser for Norwegian Mockumentary 'Trollhunter'
Another bonus indie trailer to help you start your Monday morning with a smile. This originally comes from Twitch (via io9) and is a rather amusing teaser trailer for an upcoming Norwegian mockumentary. It's called Trollhunter, or Trolljegeren, and is basically about a group of students trying to uncover the government conspiracy of giant trolls living in Norway. As incredibly awesome as that photo is above, that's just a promo shot (high res here), it's not actually in this teaser. As far as I could tell, no actual trolls show up in this, but I love their enthusiasm and the "goofiness" of the whole video is spot on. I can't wait to see more from this!
Watch the teaser trailer for André Ovredal's Trollhunter:
There aren't many details available for this film yet, but apparently it's from the producers of the Norwegian WWII epic Max Manus and is being directed by someone named André Ovredal. As Twitch explains: "The picture is a tongue-in-cheek moc-doc that proposes that the Norwegian government has been hiding the fact that they have a secret population of trolls - real, actual trolls - living on game preserves in the far north of the country, kept safe and secure and out of the public eye to prevent mass panic should people realize that these fairy tale creatures are real." Apparently Trolljegeren hits theaters in Norway this October, but we're not sure when it will be coming to the US. We'll definitely keep you updated on whatever we hear about this!
