“The Northman” is the third feature film from director Robert Eggers (“The Witch” &”The Lighthouse“), and like his two previous films, it’s an unforgettably immersive experience due to the meticulous amounts of research that went into the project with a gripping revenge story steeped in themes we’re familiar with. Eggers set out to make the definitive Viking film, and he’s done just that with his latest. The director was kind enough to speak with me for a few minutes about what it was like working with a higher budget than his last two films, what the most fun day on set was, his collaboration with Alexander Skarsgård, what he has planned next and more. Please take a listen down below, enjoy and check out the film on the biggest screen you possibly can, now playing from Focus Features! Thank you.
