The first trailer for Robert Eggers’ Viking thriller, The Northman, has been released today (20 December).
Last year, it was announced that Björk had been cast as the ‘Slav Witch’ in The Northman. Her role has since been updated to the ‘Seeress’. Today, the first trailer for the thriller has been released, and Björk briefly appears at around the 00:52 second mark. In the trailer, she whispers: “Remember for whom you shed your last teardrop”. Watch the trailer below.
Björk’s Seeress role marks her first major film appearance since 2000’s Dancer In the Dark. The star-studded line-up also features Nicole Kidman and Björk’s daughter Ísadóra Bjarkardóttir Barney.
Scripted by Eggers and Icelandic writer Sjón, The Northman tells the story of Amleth (played by Alexander Skarsgård) – a Viking prince on a mission to avenge his father’s death. Initially due to be released to cinemas on 9 April 2022, The Northman has been rescheduled to 22 April 2022 for UK venues.
