Watch: Rupert Grint in First Trailer for Petter Næss's 'Into the White'
"May I introduce you to the beautiful Norwegian countryside!" Take a look at a trailer for a film I had never heard of until today, but looks pretty damn good, even compared to The Grey. It's called Into the White, directed by Norwegian Petter Næss, and is a WWII-set survival thriller. It stars an international cast lead by Rupert Grint, of Harry Potter fame, as well as Florian Lukas, David Kross, Stig Henrik Hoff and Lachlan Nieboer. It's about two groups of pilots from opposite sides who shoot each other down but must stay at the same cabin to survive. The trailer is mostly in English with some German, but it looks quite good.
Watch the first official trailer for Petter Næss's Into the White, originally via Vlicious:
English and German pilots shoot each other down, and later find themselves at the same cabin. In order to survive the Norwegian winter they have to stay together. It's the start of a long and unlikely friendship.
Into the White is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Petter Næss, of a few films like Absolute Hangover, Just Bea, Mozart and the Whale, Leaps and Bounds and Shameless previously. The screenplay was written by Ole Meldgaard, Dave Mango & director Petter Næss. This was filmed earlier this year mostly in Sweden and Norway. Zentropa Norway is releasing in Scandinavia in March next year, but we're not sure when it'll arrive over here yet, it doesn't have a US distributor as far as we know.
