The Northman, the Robert Eggers-directed viking revenge film starring Björk, Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgård, Willem Dafoe, and Ethan Hawke will premiere April 8, 2022. Focus Features will release the film in the United States; Universal has the international rights.
The film, set in 10th Century in Iceland, follows a Viking prince seeking justice for his murdered father. Production resumed in Ireland in August 2020 after a long pandemic-related delay. Eggers co-wrote the screenplay with the Icelandic poet Sjón, who has collaborated with Björk on “Jóga,” “Cosmogony,” “Oceania,” and others.
