A new U.S. trailer has been unleashed for The Wave, an impressive-looking disaster film from Norway.
Based on reported facts surrounding the potential collapse of mountain pass Åkneset, located in the Geiranger fjord in Norway, The Wave tells the story of a geologist who learns that a massive tsunami is about to hit his town. According to his estimates, the town has ten minutes to evacuate. As you can see, it doesn’t look like everyone will make it.
Early reviews have been positive for this one, and the trailer below provides confidence in a tense outing. With the ridiculously huge budgets Hollywood disaster pics run on, it often takes foreign films like this to show a decent one can be made for less. The Wave was made for an estimated $US5.6 million.
The film begins a limited theatrical run in the U.S. on March 4.
Check out the trailer and poster below.
Synopsis for The Wave:
The experienced geologist Kristian Eikfjord has accepted a job offer out of town. He is getting ready to move from the city of Geiranger with his family when he and his colleagues measure small geological changes in the underground. Kristian gets worried, and his worst nightmare is about to come true when the alarm goes off and the disaster is inevitable. With less than 10 minutes to react, it becomes a race against time to save as many as possible, including his own family.
