Watch: Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Valhalla Rising' Official Trailer
IFC Films has debuted the official trailer (via Apple) for Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn's Viking film Valhalla Rising starring Mads Mikkelsen. I actually saw this last year at the Toronto Film Festival and I hated it. I mean really hated it, like worst film of the year. One problem is that there is no dialogue in the entire movie; the little bit you hear in this trailer is about all there is in the whole thing, I'm not kidding. Mikkelsen isn't bad, but other than it's completely dull, boring and pointless. That said, this might interest a few of you anyway, so I thought I'd feature it anyway. Not sure what's up with that aspect ratio, but enjoy!

For years, One Eye, a mute warrior of supernatural strength, has been prisoner of Norse chieftain Barde. Aided by a boy, One Eye slays his captors then escapes, beginning a journey into the heart of darkness.
Valhalla Rising was directed by cult favorite Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, of the Pusher trilogy, Fear X, and the Sundance sleeper hit Bronson previously. The screenplay was co-written by Refn and fellow Danish writer Roy Jacobsen. The film already premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Fests last year and was picked up by IFC Films. Valhalla Rising will hit limited theaters starting on July 16th in the summer.
