Mads Mikkelsen’s work in Casino Royale, the acclaimed feature The Hunt, and TV’s Hannibal has led him to A-list status, and that success only increased with 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now he’s back with Arctic, playing a man who must brave the elements for survival.
Running at 98 minutes, the picture isn’t the first feature about attempting to make it out through the cold after a plane crash (anyone remember The Mountain Between Us?), but Arctic has the makings of an excellent tale. For one, it’s directed by Joe Penna, a filmmaker who crafted his talents via short films and as “MysteryGuitarMan” via his YouTube Channel. Secondly, it’s headlined by Mikkelsen, an actor whose magnetic presence always increases a movie’s overall quality. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Arctic opens nationwide February 1.
