Valhalla Trailer

"Keep all warriors in readiness." Madman Films in Australia has debuted a new official trailer for a Danish fantasy epic titled Valhalla, which already opened in Denmark (and a few other countries) last fall. But is still awaiting release in the rest of the world. Viking children Røskva and Tjalfe embark on an adventurous journey from Midgard to Valhalla with the gods Thor and Loki. Life in Valhalla, however, turns out to be threatened by the dreaded Fenrir wolf and the god's barbaric archenemies, the Jotnar. Side by side with the gods the two children must fight to save Valhalla from the end of the world. Starring Roland Møller as Thor, Salóme Gunnarsdóttir as Freja, Lára Jóhanna Jónsdóttir as Sif, Ali Sivandi as Skrymer, plus Jacob Lohmann, Patricia Schumann, Andreas Jessen, and Stine Fischer Christensen. This looks cool! Definitely a Scandinavian cinema take on the classic Ragnarok fairy tale, but it still looks entertaining.

Here's the official Australian trailer (+ poster) for Fenar Ahmad's Valhalla, direct from YouTube:

The Viking children Røskva and Tjalfe embark on an adventurous journey from Midgard to Valhalla with the gods Thor and Loki. Life in Valhalla, however, turns out to be threatened by the dreaded Fenrir wolf and the god's barbaric archenemies, the Jotnar. Side by side with the gods the children must fight together to save Valhalla from the end of the world - Ragnarok. Valhalla is directed by Czech-Danish filmmaker Fenar Ahmad, director of the films Ækte vare and Darkland previously, and a few other documentaries. The screenplay is written by Fenar Ahmad and Adam August; based on comics by Peter Madsen. Produced by Jacob Jarek. This already opened in Denmark last fall, as well as a few other countries. Madman Films will release Valhalla in Australian cinemas (+ VOD) sometime later this year. Stay tuned for more updates.

I will almost certainly prefer Mads Mikkelsen Valhalla afterwards, but this also looks fun ...

Valhalla Rising, shiboleth...2009...a great, great film and one of my favorites, actually, of all time. I've seen it half a dozen times. Mads was incredible and not one word did he utter...lol...great, great film! Cheers! (I haven't really been commenting here, but I just had to on this thread and to your post...lol...)

Yeah, that is a great film, Bo. And its destiny among film viewers is quite bizzare and somehow undeserved. Of course, if film has any value these days it's mostly put aside. But I agree with you, I enjoyed his (Mads') silence in this intense and great, great film. He and its relation to that boy in the film was something quite remarkable... I hope you're ok wherever you are these days and that you're not close to any precarious situation that surronds all of us these days ...

Thanks for your hopes for me shiboleth and I return them to you. I'm cool. I've lived the way everyone is forced to live these days for the past 10 yrs. I retired and became a bit of a recluse as I was tired of all the nonsense of the culture and the many people in it. So I stopped going to movies with the jerks and their iPhones and the terrible movies that were being shown. I really stopped being involved in the outside world as a whole. I went to the grocery store and the bank and all who worked in those place knew me and greeted Bo with happy faces. They love me at Ralph's...lol...that's a big grocery store here in L.A. Other than that I'm spend most of my time alone in my apartment reading and watching whatever movies available on my cable TV and large Samsung HD TV. Just watched Serpico the other night (never a big fan of that film and liked Pacino's Dog Day Afternoon much better) and Samilla's Sense of Snow (love that film) and Trouble In Mind with Kris Kristofferson directed by an obscure director here in L.A. back in the early '80 named Alan Rudolph. He also directed Welcome to L.A. and was a protege of Robert Altman. I've never really cared for his work, but it was always interesting. So far so good staying my distance from this virus thing. How are you doing where you live? It's everywhere and is it a big problem in your country too? I've not read any coverage on it being there or what the situation is. Whatever, I hope you and your family are faring well thru it all. Cheers!

Something similar works here in these days of quarantine. With few distinctions, of course. One of them being me living with my girls, my wife and daughter. We get along just fine, trying to cope with things day after day. We spent most of our days in front of computers doing stuff related for our jobs (or school) trying to be as relaxed as possible. Watching films and some series at evenings that doesn't hurt each other's tastes too much (which works, so far, just fine). I mostly go out to get some groceries and, if necessary, anything else. I sometimes hear from my friends or from someone related to work which is ok. So, it's nothing special, really, In fact, we just wait for all that too pass. Situation here is also not that bad as it is in Italy or in US these days (a little more than 1.000 sick and 15 deaths for the last three weeks), although, every loss of life is tragic. So far, it's no one I know. But, what makes it easier is what I like in your description about being reclusive and living all by yourself with movies and books. That was always a dream of my life (having all the time of the world for movies and books) and I'm happy to Iive with the woman that shares that view. So, from the other aspect of it, this is not so hard on us, but it would be good thing to end for the sake of other people and for the sake of everyday life. Of course, I also hope that this experience might change something in people, something that will make them being better and commit themselves to much more serious and noble matters (despite the fact that this could sound naive). Anyway, I am (we are) doing fine and hoping for the best. Let's hope it will continue that way for us and for you too. Stay good and content with yourself, Bo. Cheers back...

You have a nice life going for you, man, what with a wife and daughter and you all love one another and get along. It's now wonder you seem to be a committed optimist, shiboleth. That's a good way to travel, for sure. I'm much more cynical than you are and fear history lands more on my side than on yours...lol...I guess it's that old saying as to whether ones sees the glass as half full or half empty, eh? Peace.

I just have to add that everybody around almost started laughing when you wrote that you considered me as an optimist (I had to show them that part). I'm mostly seen as too realistic and too serious about some matters, that's true, and less as a pesimist, but I'm hardly understood as a optimist. But stll, thank you about that, it helped my case with my social surroundings ... Peace back.

...lol...I am literally laughing out loud, shiboleth. Well, glad to be of help with regards to those around you...and in a way I can see their point now that you mention it and upon reflection and most of your posts. Cheers.
