Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.19.15] action thriller history



We've seen a ton of viking movies lately (which I'm totally down with), but Andrey Kravchuk's upcoming Russian epic Viking may have just thrown down the gauntlet in terms of bringing a truly epic vision to the screen.

Viking is yet another film that speaks to the quality of film and amazing technical achievement happening in Russian cinema right now. Sure, these films are being made with an eye towards being commercial, but, I mean, wow.


Synopsis:
History is a symptom of our disease. From the time of heavy swords and dark laws of blood, when the pressure of great chaos gave rise to heroes. From the Dark Ages came the story that changed the world forever.


Obviously no word on any kind of domestic distribution. If you've got region free capabilities, watching out for Russian, German or French blu-rays is usually a good idea. Inhabited Island never did see release, but Weinstein picked up Wolfhoud, so there is hope.

More as it comes, folks!




Recommended Release: Wolfhound

EPIC! Oh how I wish that would come to American movie theaters! Or even DVD with subtitles would be great.

Inhabited Island was released in Germany as Blu-ray with the title Dark Planet. It has even the 2 episode long cut on it.

Its nor really a viking movie. Its a movie about the first creation of Russia. Of which the vikings were a part.
