‘Mortal’ Trailer: Nat Wolff Becomes A Norse God

Nat Wolff has superpowers in the new Mortal trailer. Taking a supernatural and mythological approach instead of the superhero one we are used to seeing, the film tells the story of Eric, a young American man trekking across Norway, unintentionally wreaking havoc with his abilities. Taken in by authorities and helped out by a social worker, Eric can’t seem to control what he’s doing, making him a target for all who encounter him.

If the intense trailer is any indication, Mortal seems to take a different approach to the Thor legend and I am all for it. Mortal was already released in Norway in February and is a Norwegian production, using both the English and Norwegian languages for dialogue. It was written and directed by the acclaimed André Øvredal, known for 2010’s Trollhunter and last year’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

Mortal hits the UK in August but is yet to have a US date.
