There are some amazingly creative films coming out of Scandinavia recently. This month alone we had a sneak peak at Finnish film Rare Exports, a very twisted take on the story of Father Christmas and now this trailer for Trolljegeren, aka The Troll Hunter. Apparently it tells the story of a group of documentary film makers trying to track down elusive trolls in Norway which are rumoured to be living in large reserves owned by the government in the north of the country. In true mockumentary, shaky, hand-held style they get more than they bargained for. The Troll Hunter is released in Norway in October but no word when it’s released here in the UK.
Here’s a teaser trailer for a movie called I Am Number Four, directed by DJ Caruso whose previous works have included Disturbia and Eagle Eye and he’s slated to direct the film version of the popular sci-fi survival horror console game Dead Space. Starring ex-teenage Burberry model Alex Pettyfer the film tells the story of refugee John Smith, (scriptwriters pushed the boat out there), who is one of nine gifted children who along with their individual gaurdians have escaped their home planet of Lorien for earth. But here they are hunted and killed by their enemies in numeric order and three have already been exterminated.
