If you’re a fan of Vikings, I think we’ve found your new favourite movie. Tony Stone’s Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery of America is a historical adventure movie that takes place in 1007 AD, focusing on two Norsemen who are stranded upon arriving in the New World. After their expedition is attacked, they are left for dead, and must struggle to survive against unfamiliar terrain and hostile groups of Indians and Irish Monks.
This teaser trailer doesn’t really get across what the movie is about, but it could be one of the most epic and artistic trailers I’ve ever seen. Amazing. Seriously, just watch this and you will be mesmerized. Apparently the soundtrack also features plenty of black metal bands. I’m guessing that Marcus Nispel’s Pathfinder pales in comparison. Severed Ways has been making the festival rounds, and will be brought to select theatres by Magnet Releasing on March 20th. For more info visit the film’s official website.
