'Ragnarok'

Magnolia takes rights to Norwegian adventure film "Ragnarok" after seeing a three minute promo at the Berlin Film Market. The Trust Nordisk film, from director Mikkel Sandemose, is about an archaeologist ("Kon-Tiki"'s Pål Sverre Hagen) obsessed with the Oseberg Viking ship;

...Convinced that the Oseberg ship contains the answer to the mystery of Ragnarok, the end of days in Norse mythology he mounts an expedition to “No Man’s Land” between Norway and Russia, which holds a secret more terrifying than he could possibly imagine.

Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles states, "We are very excited about Ragnarok, which has all the makings of a terrific action adventure."

Magnolia released Norway's "Headhunters" and "Troll Hunters," and recently acquired Norwegian thriller "Pioneer." Norway's "Kon-Tiki" is competing for the Best Foreign Language Oscar; it was released by the Weinstein Co.

"Ragnarok" is set for an October release.
