The new poster for Roar Uthaug’s The Wave isn’t a disaster

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Norwegian director Roar Uthaug (COLD PREY) submits his application to replace Roland Emmerich as the world's leading disaster filmmaker with this poster for his upcoming film THE WAVE. It's a simple but evocative design, reminiscent of the classic splashy disaster films of yore. Pitting the forces of nature against a hospital, a hyperbolically pure symbol of humankind's goodness, it promises to be a downright fun movie. Check out the design 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.
