Watch: First Official Trailer for Norwegian Disaster Movie 'The Wave'
It was only a matter of time. This looks epic! Magnolia Pictures has unveiled an official US trailer for The Wave, a big disaster movie set in Norway. The film is about a giant wave of water that emerges when a fjord collapses, destroying everything in its path. The plot: "a geologist gets caught in the middle of it and a race against against time begins." Ten minutes extended to two hours! This is the closest we've seen to a Roland Emmerich disaster movie (except San Andreas) and it actually looks damn good. Starring Kristoffer Joner, Thomas Bo Larsen, Ane Dahl Torp and Fridtjov Såheim. Don't ignore this one, give it a look.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Roar Uthaug's The Wave, direct from Magnolia's YouTube:
Even though awaited, no-one is really ready when the mountain pass of Åkneset above the scenic narrow Norwegian fjord Geiranger falls out and creates a 85 meter high violent tsunami. A geologist is one of those caught in the middle of it. The Wave is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (of Escape, Magic Silver, Cold Prey previously), from a screenplay Harald Rosenløw-Eeg & John Kåre Raake. The film premiered at the Haugesund Film Festival, and also played at the Toronto Film Festival. Magnolia Pictures will release The Wave in select US theaters starting on March 4th, 2016 this spring. Are you prepared?
