Watch: Official US Trailer for Norwegian Action Thriller '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:
