Ragnarok Trailer: A Spielbergian Action-Adventure from Norway


After introducing U.S. audiences to a handful of Norwegian genre flicks like Headhunters and Troll Hunter, this year Magnolia Films will be importing another, slightly more family-friendly flick from Norway. Ragnarok stars Pål Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki) as an archaeologist who is convinced that stories of the Norse apocalypse may be more than just myth. He leads an expedition to No Man’s Land between Norway and Russia in search of treasure, but ends up discovering something much more dangerous. The movie has been compared to Jurassic Park and is described as a family adventure film with an edge. Ragnarok hits select theatres on Aug. 15th; check out the U.S. trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    I really liked Troll Hunter, but I’m not impressed with this trailer.
