It’s ten minutes to impact in this new clip from Roar Uthaug’s The Wave

Last Updated on July 21, 2021

THE WAVE is honestly one of my most anticipated movies of the year. Director Roar Uthaug comes from the modern school of Norwegian filmmakers who seem to have mastered making American-style genre pictures even better than Hollywood at this point.

His tsunami disaster movie might have a familiar plot line, but this newly released clip is a thriller. In it, we see the beginning of ten minutes of Hell for Norway's coastal residents, featuring some surprisingly solid special effects and what looks like a Norwegian Norman Reedus. How could this movie not be a good time? Check out the clip below!

Nestled in Norway’s Sunnmøre region, Geiranger is one of the most spectacular tourist draws on the planet. With the mountain Åkerneset overlooking the village — and constantly threatening to collapse into the fjord — it is also a place where cataclysm could strike at any moment. After putting in several years at Geiranger’s warning centre, geologist Kristian is moving on to a prestigious gig with an oil company.

But the very day he’s about to drive his family to their new life in the city, Kristian senses something isn’t right. The substrata are shifting. No one wants to believe that this could be the big one, especially with tourist season at its peak, but when that mountain begins to crumble, every soul in Geiranger has ten minutes to get to high ground before a tsunami hits, consuming everything in its path.

Starring Kristoffer Joner, Ane Dahl Torp (DEAD SNOW), Jonas Oftebro, and Thomas Bo Larsen (THE HUNT), THE WAVE will crash into American theaters and VOD on March 4th, 2015.
