Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Björk, and Willem Dafoe are among a star-studded cast in the upcoming flick, in which a young Viking prince goes on a quest to avenge his murdered father.

The story is told through the eyes of Skarsgård’s character Amleth, whose uncle Fjölnir (Bang) kills his dad King Aurvandil (Hawke).

“It’s basically the story of ‘Hamlet’ or ‘The Lion King’, which was originally an old Norse story where the Hamlet character was called Amleth. We’ve told it in our own way,” Eggers shared.

“It is a Viking saga with magic and swords and mysticism and all the stuff that you’d want from that.”
