In preparation for its UK theatrical release on August 30th (after it plays FrightFest), Entertainment One and Vertigo Films have debuted 5 character posters for the Viking saga, Hammer of the Gods. US viewers will have already had a chance to view the film on VOD, but personally speaking I'd like to see it on the big screen. Anyone want to fly me over to the UK? Haha! Enjoy Agnes and Co as they set about 9th Century Britain.
Set in Viking Britain in 871 AD, Hammer of the Gods is an intense visceral tale set in a world whose only language is violence. A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley), is sent by his father the king on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinar’s epic journey across terrifyingly hostile territory with his most trusted friends and warriors, gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be – the ruthless and unforgiving successor to the throne.
