Watch This: Crazy Trailer for Euforia Film's Norwegian Ninja
I don't know what exactly this is, but you need to see it. Russ Fischer of SlashFilm found this trailer today for a film called Norwegian Ninja that comes from the same production company who made the crazy Nazi zombie film Dead Snow (which I liked a lot more than everyone else). Norwegian Ninja is apparently the "true story" of how Commander Arne Treholt and his Ninja Force saved Norway during the Cold War. There's so much random cool shit in this I don't even know what to say. It looks like they use that reserve effect a lot as well to make the ninjas looks skilled. I don't think I need to say anything else - check it out!
Watch the first trailer for Thomas Cappelen Malling's Norwegian Ninja:
The story takes place in the time right before Commander Arne Treholt’s arrest on espionage charges in 1984, and reveals a spectacularly different version of our recent past than has been previously known.
Norwegian Ninja is both written and directed by first-time Swedish filmmaker Thomas Cappelen Malling. This is actually based on a real Norwegian politician, Arne Treholt, but is more fictionalized version of him and his history. Mads Ousdal plays Treholt and Trond-Viggo Torgersen (last seen in O'Horten) plays King Olav V. This was on sale at Cannes, but as far as we know it doesn't actually have a US distributor yet. Stay tuned for updates, I guess. Visit the official website: ninjatroppen.no. Anyone into this movie at all?
