Troll Trailer Teases Monster Movie Action on Netflix
A new trailer for Troll teases an action-packed monster movie from the director of Tomb Raider.
Something has been awakened on Netflix in the newly released trailer for the upcoming monster movie, Troll.
Released courtesy of the official Netflix YouTube channel, Troll finds a monster from deep down below emerging after centuries to wreak havoc — which includes smashing buildings to pieces, taking down helicopters, and generally terrorizing everybody as a community in Norway comes to realize that their tales of folklore may not have been as mythical as they thought.
Deep Inside The Mountain Of Dovre, Norway, Something Gigantic Awakens After Being Trapped For A Thousand Years.
Destroying everything in its path, the creature is fast approaching the capital of Norway, with city-dweller struggling to stop something they thought existed only in Norwegian folklore. A rag-tag group of heroes must come together to try and stop it from wreaking deadly havoc.
Troll looks like the perfect combination of monster movie thrills, B-movie ridiculousness, and perhaps even some genuine terror as the ancient troll is awakened and makes his way toward civilization.
Cast And Crew
Troll is directed by filmmaker Roar Uthaug, who is best known for helming the 2018 Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander. His other projects include the action drama The Wave, the adventure flick Escape, and the horror outing Cold Prey.
The cast, meanwhile, will be led by the critically acclaimed Norwegian actress Ine Marie Wilmann, who is best known for her performances in the likes of the drama Homesick, and the biopic Sonja: The White Swan. Standing alongside her in the battle against the almighty Troll is Mads Sjøgård Pettersen, who previously starred in the Netflix holiday-comedy Home for Christmas and the war drama The 12th Man.
The rest of the cast is comprised of Kim Falck, Gard B. Eidsvold, Pål Richard Lunderby, Eric Vorenholt, Pål Anders Nordvi, Veronica Sinclair, and Hugo Mikal Skår. Initially, the plan was for Uthaug to reunite with his Tomb Raider star Alicia Vikander, but sadly things did not work out, and the actress departed the project.
Spoilers And Trolls
The troll is one of the lesser-explored movie monsters, with the likes of 2010’s Trollhunter, the haunting Border from 2018, and, of course, the Trolls franchise keeping the mythical beast alive. Putting the spotlight on the troll is something that director Roar Uthaug has wanted to do for quite some time.
Two decades in fact. “Troll is an idea that has been developing in the back of my mind for over 20 years,” he said of the project. “To finally be able to realize it with the enthusiastic and ambitious people at Netflix and Motion Blur is truly a dream come true. I can’t wait to unleash this Norwegian monster on the world.”
Netflix is also more than happy to be in the troll business. “We are incredibly proud to bring a Norwegian project of this scale to the world together with Roar Uthaug and Motion Blur. Roar is an extremely skilled filmmaker and I’m excited for him to go back to his Norwegian roots with this ambitious, fun film,” adds David Kosse, Vice President of International Original Film at Netflix.
Troll is expected to land on Netflix on December 1, 2022.
