Saban Films has released the trailer and poster for their latest captivating thriller Mortal. They say that man was made in God’s image… see one man’s discovery into how true that statement just might be. Based on Norwegian mythology, Mortal takes audiences on an action-packed, anti-hero thrill ride.
Synopsis: In this spellbinding thriller, a sleepy Norwegian town erupts after an American backpacker, Eric, is arrested. Witnesses claim a teen died after touching the stranger, and that he inexplicably started a fire that engulfed a farm. He warns a psychologist, Christine, that he has supernatural powers, and that anyone who gets too close to him dies. Is Eric a liar, a freak of nature, an angry god? Determined to find the truth, Christine draws nearer, and what she finds is beyond her wildest imaginings…
Mortal gives off a very X-Men meets Norse god vibe and I totally dig it. Action sequences, moments of tension and suspense, and a healthy dose of psychological warfare all come together for one pleasing product. Nat Wolff looks like he will shine in his role as Eric, the element wielding superhuman. I have high hopes for this film and will definitely be putting it on the watch list.
Directed by André Øvredal (The Autopsy Of Jane Doe, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark), Mortal Nat Wolff (The Fault in our Stars), Iben Akerlie (The Little Drummer Girl), Per Frisch (Blind Spot), Per Egil Aske (Exit Plan), and Priyanka Bose (The Good Karma Hospital). The film is rated R for brief violent sequences and is coming to select US theaters and On Demand and Digital on November 6th. Mortal will also be available for purchase on Blu-Ray on November 1o.
