The Northman is a new upcoming 2022 American epic historical fiction acting film directed by Robert Eggers. The Northman is often described as a 10th-century revenge story set in Iceland. Amleth’s father is killed by his uncle, then he sets off on a quest for revenge. The Northman is one of the most highly anticipated 2022 movies. It features an all-star cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke, Alexander Skarsgård, and Anya Taylor.

The movie was published so Robert Eggers can show how to push the plot forward in a tactical manner. Northman is a follow-up to his highly acclaimed 2019 film The Lighthouse. You can find this movie on all platforms such as HBO Max, Peacock, Amazon Prime, and Apple TV. Before making the movie in 2020 he stated that Northman is the largest scale film he’s ever filmed. Robert Eggers is the true definition of the auteur director in an industry that has systematically exterminated them in favor of glorified project managers.
