The Wave Trailer. Roar Uthaug‘s The Wave (2015) movie trailer stars Kristoffer Joner, Ane Dahl Torp, Eili Harboe, Jonas Hoff Oftebro, and Herman Bernhoft. The Wave‘s plot synopsis: “Based on the fact that mountain pass Åkneset, located in the Geiranger fjord in Norway, one day will fall out and create a violent tsunami of over 80 meters that will crush everything in its path before it hits land in Geiranger. A geologist gets caught in the middle of it and a race against against time begins.”
Though our only synopsis is of the user-submitted IMDb variety, I think it’s safe to say it’s fairly accurate. According to Twitchfilm,
A watery death is coming to the fjords of Norway courtesy of Cold Prey director Roar Uthaug. Uthaug has taken the actual events of 1934 when a landslide into a fjord triggered a tsunami that essentially wiped the community of Talfjord off the map and used it as the basis for his upcoming disaster epic The Wave (Bolgen).
I haven’t been paying close attention to Uthaug or his recent work, praised by film sites across the board. To be honest, I’ve been ignorant regarding the events of 1934 that are the premise of this film. I will be rectifying all of this in a few minutes. For now, what we have is this trailer.
Frankly, I’m indifferent. Yes, the effects look great, and I love emergency sirens going off in the distance. I’m a fan of disaster films, whether they’re gigantic and absolutely ridiculous or intimate and personal (I prefer the latter, to be honest). That assumes I’ll be watching this film, come VOD release, but I just can’t muster any excitement for this yet. A subtitled trailer might’ve helped affect that, frankly.
