Outlander Movie Trailers Have Lots of Vikings

“Outlander! Outlander! We have your woman! She still lives Outlander! Outlander! Her blood will spill!” Ahem, sorry, but everytime I think about the new James Caviezel “spaceman in Vikings time battles Beowulf legend” movie “Outlander”, I instantly flash back to that hilarious South Park episode where, a couple of days after the adults are all rounded up and arrested for attempting to molest their kids (or so the kids say), South Park turns into “Children of the Corn” times, like, 200 or something. Wait, where was I? Oh right, the first official trailer for Caviezel’s “Outlander” is out, and I have to admit, not bad. Could have been better, but not bad at all.

During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan (Caviezel), a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking’s Iron Age weaponry.

Starring James Caviezel, Sophia Myles, Jack Huston, Ron Perlman, and John Hurt. Howard McCain directs.

The first trailer is a teaser so dark you can barely make out anything:

The second trailer looks pretty official, and is much cooler:
