‘The Northman’ Release Date: Robert Eggers Film to Release in 2022

Director Robert Eggers’ “The Northman” will release in theaters on April 8, 2022, Focus Features announced on Friday. Universal Pictures International will premiere the film internationally on the same day.

Starring Alexander Skarsgard, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe and Björk, the revenge thriller explores the depths at which a Viking prince will go to seek justice for the murder of his father.

Eggers’ third feature as director wrapped filming in December 2020. Production originally began late last summer in Ireland, but had to pause for a period of time due to COVID-19.

“When I went to Belfast [for ‘The Northman’], I was pretty scared,” Kidman told Variety‘s Marc Malkin in January. “People were saying, ‘Oh my God, if you go, you’re going to get COVID.’ So I was really frightened, but at the same time, I had this sense of duty and I had this sense of ‘this is what I do.’ I’m a creative being who shows up and I put on as much protection as I could and so I did the production and we were all safe and I went, ‘OK, let’s go.’”

“The Northman” serves as a follow up to 2019’s “The Lighthouse,” which starred Dafoe and Robert Pattinson and earned an Academy Award nomination for best cinematography. In addition to Dafoe, “The Northman” reunited Eggers and Taylor-Joy, who starred in his directorial feature debut, “The Witch.” Eggers also co-wrote the screenplay with Icelandic poet and novelist Sjón. It is produced by Lars Knudsen (“Midsummer”) and Mark Huffam of New Regency.
