A trailer has arrived for Netflix’s latest monster movie, Troll. Directed by Roar Uthaug, the Norwegian film centers on the mountains of Dovre, where a legendary creature awakens for the first time in 1,000 years. Based on an idea that Uthaug says lasted 20 years, the film was originally pitched to reunite the director with his grave robber star Alicia Vikander, before the actor was forced to pull out of the project.
Released as part of Netflix’s Geeked Week, the trailer for Troll takes a closer look at one of Norway’s most legendary mythological creatures. Flying over the country’s idyllic landscape, a team arrives in the Dovre Mountains to investigate a monstrously large footprint discovered next to the ruins of a house. Rummaging inside a cave strewn with bones of inhuman size, the group’s answer to the mystery finds them when a troll rises from the face of the mountain. Check out the trailer below:

Although conceived by Uthaug, the scenario of Troll was written by Espen Aukan, who also wrote the Norwegian horror film viking wolf. The lead role of Vikander is taken over by Ine Marie Wilmann as Nora, supported by Kim Falck, Mads Sjøgård Pettersen, Gard B. Eidsvold, Pål Anders Nordvi, Eric Vorenholt and Hugo Mikal Skår. Filmed mainly in Oslo, production on Troll concluded in December 2021 with Espen Horn and Kristian Strand Sinkerud serving as Motion Blur producers. Coming soon to Netflix, the official release date for the monster movie has yet to be announced.
