Ragnarok Trailer

"Man knows little." As much as I was hoping this was an epic action-adventure on the scale of 13th Warrior or Beowulf or Outlander, it actually seems to be more of a family adventure similar to National Treasure. Nordisk Film and Mangolia Pictures have released the first subtitled trailer for Ragnarok, originally Gåten Ragnarok, starring Norwegian actor Pål Sverre Hagen, seen in last year's Oscar nominated film Kon-Tiki. This is actually more of a teaser with gorgeous sweeping shots of a family on some adventure raiding Viking graves and hugging each other, but beyond that, I'm not sure what they're going to encounter. Take a look!

Here's the full (English subtitled) trailer for Mikkel Brænne Sandemose's Ragnarok, found on YouTube:

When the archaeologist Sigurd can't settle on the myth about Ragnarok, the end of the world in Northern mythology, he decides to go on an expedition together with two colleges and his two kids. This adventure leads them to Finnmark in Norway, and into "No Man's Land", where no one has been in modern times.

Fantefilm is behind the upcoming "large scale action-adventure film" (straight from their YouTube) which stars actor Pål Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki) as an archeologist obsessed with the Oseberg Viking ship. Gåten Ragnarok is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Mikkel Brænne Sandemose, of only the film "Cold Prey 3" previously. No US release date has been set by Magnolia yet, but it will hit Norwegian theaters this August.
