Netflix Geeked Week has started and the streamer is dropping clips from its lineups of shows for the second half of the year. One among them is the Norwegian movie, Troll. Netflix does not have too much offering from Norway, but Troll is going to change that for the streamer. The movie focuses on the mythical creatures that are often found in Scandinavian folktales. 

According to the director, Uthuag, the movie was in production for 20 long years. He also directed Alicia Vikander’s Tomb Raider and was expected to reunite with her in this project. However, unfortunately, it didn’t happen, and Ine Marie Wilmann took over from her. But despite the setbacks, the first teaser looks promising. After all, who doesn’t love tales about monsters?
