Valhalla Rising to Screen at Venice Film Festival!
The (non) Vikings are invading Italy!...or something not remotely close to that lol sorry! but I ran out of fun ways to say that Venice Film Festival has officially announced their selections today, and Refn's Valhalla Rising, starring Mads Mikkelsen and Jamie Sives will be part of the event which takes place early September. Curiously it is not being called the world premiere of the film, but rather Variety reports Valhalla Rising is one of the "Midnight Movies." RELATED: Scanbox has a slew of new pics of MADS MIKKELSEN (and the one of Jamie Sives above) now online, here (at link click the + where it says 'pictures')
For the journalist and random peeps who emailed wanting to know more about VH, yes I have loads of posts/links to production here and be sure to watch the on set feature from Digital Guerillas below
Oddly, Triage w/Jamie and esp Colin Farrell had long been rumored to be showing at this festival but as of now I dont see it listed. Anyway, cool that the movie which was based out of Film City Glasgow while in production last year is getting such good exposure at these big festivals; lets just hope we will get to see the thing in movie theaters in UK and US!
