Focus Features on Wednesday shared new character posters for The Northman, Robert Eggers‘ upcoming Viking revenge epic.

The new imagery sees Alexander Skarsgård as Amleth, Nicole Kidman as Queen Gudrún, Anya Taylor-Joy as Olga, Björk as The Seeress, Willem Dafoe as Heimir the Fool and Ethan Hawke as King Aurvandil. Each poster features the film’s tagline, which reads “Conquer Your Fate,” alongside captivating, straight-faced shots of each character.

“The legend begins April 22,” Focus Features wrote on Twitter alongside the new promotional shots.

The film, which takes place in 10th-century Iceland, is “an epic revenge thriller that explores how far a Viking prince will go to seek justice for his murdered father,” according to Focus’ official description. Production first began in Northern Ireland in March 2020 before being postponed to August of that year due to the pandemic.

Eggers, who co-wrote the script alongside Icelandic poet and novelist Sjón, worked with cinematographer Jarin Blaschke and editor Louise Ford on the feature. Producers include Lars Knudsen, Mark Huffam and New Regency.

The Northman will hit theaters on April 22, 2022. Take a look at each of the new character posters above, and watch the official trailer here.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Star Trek: Picard has announced the season three cast in a new teaser.
