Other details

Troll is created by a special team of Alicia Vikander and director Roar Uthaug. Both have worked together previously in Tomb Raider. Uthaug claims the movie is a manifestation of development spanning over two decades now. Makers of the Netflix film Cadaver, Espen Horn, and Kristian Strand Sinkerud are the executive producers of the film.


A group of researchers are examining signs of a creature that is supposed to exist only in ancient folklore before coming face to face with the creature itself.


When Norway is suddenly faced with an unprecedented crisis of ancient, giant trolls, they retaliate in the only way they know how, which is through military might. However, the researchers brought in to learn more warn the government that the trolls will not go down quietly.
