Roar Uthaug’s The Wave to crash into theaters this March

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

COLD PREY director Roar Uthaug's newest feature THE WAVE is swelling just offshore. It will crash into American theaters and VOD on March 4th, 2015, just to give you a taste of the talented Norwegian director's work before he sets off on the TOMB RAIDER reboot that we're so excited about.


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.

Uthaug is one of many current Norwegian filmmakers who have proven that they have the skill to make American-style genre movies even better than their counterparts in the States. COLD PREY was an indescribably excellent entry into the slasher genre, and I can't wait to see what he does with the equally silly and cult-renowned disaster genre. 

THE WAVE stars Kristoffer Joner, Ane Dahl Torp (DEAD SNOW), Jonas Oftebro, and Thomas Bo Larsen (THE HUNT). Check out the unsubtitled Norwegian trailer below!
