Action Packed, Adrenaline Fuelled Trailer For Roar Uthaug's ESCAPE (FLUKT)
Director Roar Uthaug caused quite an international stir a few years back with the release of his Norwegian slasher Cold Prey, a film that was not just a hit at home but arguably the trigger point for the current wave of Nordic genre film. Cold Prey was a game changer and fans have been waiting for Uthaug to turn up again. With his sophomore feature he made the surprising choice to co-direct a children's fantasy film with his wife but now he's back in genre territory with his third effort, Escape (Flukt).
Given that this is a period set action / chase picture the obvious point of comparison would be Neil Marshall's Centurion but if this just-released first teaser is to be believed not only does the film have its own personality but may best Marshall's excellent offering in terms of quality as well. Check it below.Ten years after the Black Death ravaged the country, a poor family is on a journey to find better living conditions. On a deserted mountain pass, they are attacked by a gang of ruthless outlaws. They only spare the life of the nineteen year old Signe. She is taken captive and the gang takes her back to their camp.
