Netflix has unveiled a new poster and release date for Trollan upcoming 2018 norwegian horror film tomb Raider director, Uthaug Roar. Weather Troll will miss the spooky season and skip Halloween, it won’t take us long to see the titular monster in its giant glory, as the movie hits the streaming service this December.
The new poster features two people climbing a massive rock face. Little do they know that they are actually in the face of a gigantic rock monster that comes straight from Norwegian mythology. As the film’s trailer revealed, the titular Troll is inspired by folktales that describe a creature “made of earth and stones,” with “icy bones” and a “snow-covered home.” The Troll will also be vulnerable to the Sun, as being exposed to daylight hardens its body and freezes it in place.
Following the familiar structure of a classic creature feature, Troll it will introduce a monster into our reality and show what would happen if we were attacked by an incredible enemy. Unfortunately, some unlucky investigators will have to face a very real creature once the mountains begin to move and threaten to destroy entire cities with the force of their monolithic arms. The film follows the army and scientists trying to stop the Troll’s rampage before it reaches the Norwegian capital, a task that leads them to search ancient myths for clues involving the magical creatures.
While the first trailer already gave us a glimpse of the colossus, the poster features a detailed look at the Troll’s face. A creature feature lives or dies based on how well its main monster can catch the audience. And from the looks of it, Troll promises to be a hell of a good time.
