With the fantastic looking The Troll Hunter set to make its debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, some behind-the-scenes imagery of the making of the film’s monster has just surfaced online. Imagery that offers the best look at the creature and what went into creating him that we’ve seen yet.
Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced that it has acquired world rights (excluding Europe) to writer/director André Ovredal’s docu-style horror flick so expect to see it hopefully soon.
Shot in a vérité style, Troll Hunter is the story of a group of Norwegian film students that set out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has been covered up for years by a government conspiracy. A thrilling and wildly entertaining film, Hunter is said to deliver truly fantastic images of giant trolls wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore.
“Troll Hunter is one hell of a ride, with trolls the size of King Kong,” said Magnet SVP Tom Quinn. “André Ovredal has created a one-of-a-kind creature feature that’s sure to entertain and wow audiences all over the world. We’re extremely proud to add it to the Magnet slate.”
