THE GATE OF RAGNAROK Opens With First Trailer

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
[Updated with English subtitled trailer and official poster.]

Fancy yourself a bit of Amblin style, kid friendly, fantasy adventure? Of course you do. Well then, you've come to the right place because after being kept closely under wraps for quite a while the first trailer for director Mikkel Brænne Sandemose's Norwegian adventure tale The Gate Of Ragnarok (Gåten Ragnarokk) has arrived.

Archeologist Sigurd Svendsen (Pål Sverre Hagen) has for years been obsessed with the Oseberg Viking ship. The only inscription found on the ship is the enigmatic ´man knows little` written in runes. Sigurd is sure that the Oseberg ship contains the answer to the mystery of Ragnarok, the end of days in Norse mythology. When his friend Allan finds similar runes on a stone from the north of Norway, Sigurd becomes convinced that the runes are in fact a treasure map. Together they mount an expedition group and their adventure leads to "No man's Land" between Norway and Russia, which has been deserted for decades. Here Sigurd learns the true meaning of the runes - a secret more terrifying than he could possibly imagine.
Coming from the producers of Cold Prey, Jackpot and Escape, you can expect very high production values from this one while having Nikolai Cleve Broche (Max Manus, Uro, Uno) as one of the leads means that the acting will be quality as well. Check the trailer below.

    Looks impressive.....but no english subs...?

    What gives Norway...?

    I´m hoping it´s just as entertaining as Miraklet i Valby/The Miracle in Valby (1989), De fortabte sjæles ø/Island of Lost Souls (2007) both danish of course, but something like that would be much welcomed.
    Thanks for the trailer, Mr Brown.
