Watch: The Pressure Is On In Clip From Norwegian Thriller 'Pioneer'

There’s not much going into wide release in theaters this weekend, so you might want to consider staying in and ordering up the Norwegian thriller “Pioneer.” It has a score by French electronic duo Air, it comes from director Erik Skjoldbjærg who helmed the original “Insomnia” before Christopher Nolan remade it, and it stars Aksel Hennie (“Headhunters“), Stephen Lang (“Avatar”), Wes Bentley (“American Beauty,” “The Hunger Games“) and Stephanie Sigman (“Miss Bala“). Not too bad right? Well, here’s an exclusive clip.

Inspired by a true story, the film is set in the midst of the Norwegian oil boom of the 1970s and centers on Petter, an expert diver and pipefitter who works in the furthest depths of the ocean. But when a tragic accident strikes, Petter decides to get to the truth beyond the official story, and doing so puts him in the path of some very powerful people.

“Pioneer” opens today in cinemas and on VOD. Watch below.
