New Trailer for Russian Period Epic ‘Viking’
A second trailer has been released for Andrey Kravchuk‘s period epic Viking, ahead of the film’s official Russian debut in December 2016.
The new trailer teases lot of grand-scale action, while showing you quite a bit of information about the characters and story. The film still looks authentic, cold, dark and brutal, and I really hope there would be no cheesy moments. Check out the English-subtitled trailer below:
Kievan Rus, late 10th century. After the death of his father, Svyatoslav I, the ruler of Kievan Rus, the young Viking prince Vladimir (Danila Kozlovsky) is forced into exile across the frozen sea in Sweden to escape his treacherous half-brother Yaropolk (Aleksandr Ustyugov), who has murdered his other brother Oleg and conquered the Viking territory of Kievan Rus.
The old warrior Sveneld (Maksim Sukhanov) convinces Vladimir to assemble a Varangian armada lead by a Swedish viking chieftain (Joakim Nätterqvist), hoping to reconquer Kiev from Yaropolk and ultimately face the mighty Byzantine forces.
