Based on the Scandinavian legend from which Shakespeare’s Hamlet was originally adapted, The Northman, co-written by director Robert Eggers and Icelandic novelist Sjón Sigurdsson, follows Prince Amleth as he sets out on a vengeful quest to bring his father’s killer to justice.

As if bloody battle scenes and exquisite medieval costumes weren’t enough to whet the epic-lover’s appetite, The Northman also benefits from outstanding cinematography thanks to the creative vision of Jarin Blaschke and the unspoiled beauty of the stunning locations in Ireland and Scandinavia where filming took place.

Preceded by Eggers’ celebrated and highly memorable debut and sophomore features The Witch (2015) and The Lighthouse (2019), this cerebral action-packed tale of murder and revenge is a hotly anticipated addition to the award-winning director’s small yet already hugely impressive oeuvre.
