Former Uwe Boll actors Dominic Purcell and Natassia Malthe team up to take on an evil Thor in Yusry Abd Halim’s expensive looking action-adventure fantasy epic “Vikingdom”. Thor is up to no good in this one, which will probably make the Odin Father very angry. Where’s Loki when you need him? Maybe Marvel can spare Tom Hiddleston to make a cameo. Couldn’t hurt to ask, right? Or maybe one of Thor’s fellow Avengers…
Anyhoo. Check out a pair of trailers and a batch of images from the film. It actually looks pretty good. Or at least, very interesting. Jon Foo of “Tekken” fame is in this one, too. (Or Jon Foo of “Tekken” infamy in case you didn’t like “Tekken”. To each his own.)
In the midst of time comes the clanging of steel against steel, a collision of myth and history…. “Vikingdom”. Based on Viking legends and the epic poems they left as record, “Vikingdom” is a fantasy, action adventure about a forgotten king, Eirick, who was tasked with the impossible odds to defeat Thor, the God of Thunder. Thor is on a mission to gather the key ancient relics – “Mjolnir” – his hammer from Valhalla, “Necklace of Mary Magdalene” from Mitgard and the “Horn” from Helheim. This needs to be accomplished before the Blood Eclipse, which happens once every 800 years, failing which, the pagan Viking Gods will never be able to rule and conquer mankind ever again. Only one man can stop him… Eirick, the undead.
Starring Dominic Purcell, Natassia Malthe, Craig Fairbrass, Jon Foo, Conan Stevens, Jesse Moss, Patrick Murray, and Tegan Moss.
The film’s Facebook page has a September 12th release date, and there’s an October 4th release date Stateside on one of the posters, but I don’t know where you can expect to see it, or on what platform. I am assuming VOD.
