The Last King

"In an ancient land of ice & snow, traitors with dark desires lurk in the shadows…" Magnolia has debuted a trailer for a Norwegian action movie called The Last King, directed by filmmaker Nils Gaup. The story is about two men that have to protect an illegitimate son born in ancient Norway during a civil war. This actually looks awesome - there's even tons of skiing action, plus swords and bows & arrows, everything else. It's obviously playing at the "Game of Thrones" fans, but also looks like it might be a lot of fun to watch. The cast includes Kristofer Hivju, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Jakob Oftebro, and Thorbjørn Harr. Give it a look.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Nils Gaup's The Last King, in high def from Apple:

The Last King is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Nils Gaup, of films like Journey to the Christmas Star, The Kautokeino Rebellion, The North Star, and Shipwrecked previously.

  • this trailer isn't good at all, they are using every cliche in the textbook ,so i am not going to watch this. Watch risen with cliff Curtis as jesus, a beautiful movie!

      Yup, just about right, only cliches here. Anyway Ari, I gave a lot of thought regarding your facebook idea. Considering I am very inactive and not interested facebook member I had hard time finding reason to do it. But, on the other side, I think you are probably nice guy so I sent you request. You will see my name is not this one here (some surprise, right?) and it might be unusual to you (however, there is some 'S' at first) but you might get used to it. So, see you there ...

    That editing was really bad

    Lately, I see too many ideas for film where I wish those bad guys to win. More and more, it seems that has more sense ...
  • they need to hire a better DP. picture looks generic.
  • This movie came and went in Norway, and nobody seemed to notice or care.
