Those missing “Game of Thrones” may be in luck, as Claudio Fäh’s upcoming “Northmen: A Viking Saga” looks to be chock full of medieval sword fights and intense violence. The action film stars Tom Hopper (“Merlin”), Ryan Kwanten (“True Blood”), Charlie Murphy and Ed Skrein.
The official synopsis reads: “‘Northmen: A Viking Saga’ tells the story of a group of Vikings in the ninth century who sets sail for Britain, aiming to plunder the rich monasteries in the northern part of the island. But a storm smashes the ship to pieces on the rocks off the coast of Scotland, the only part of Britain without any Viking settlements. Soon thereafter, the daughter of the Scottish King falls into their hands and the Vikings see this as an opportunity to demand a large ransom. The King immediately sets his ‘wolfpack’ — a group of mercenaries well known for their savagery — on the Vikings. The ‘Northmen’ and their hostage have to force their way through the rough highlands, where they meet the brave and mysterious Christian monk Conall (Kwanten). Having the wolfpack close on their heels, a desperate race against time begins.”
“Northmen: A Viking Saga” will be released by Anchor Bay Entertainment in theaters and on digital HD on July 31. The film will be available on VOD and DVD and Blu-ray on August 11. Check out the exclusive clip above.
