Nine Icelandic Movies to Premiere

The fall is usually the time for new Icelandic movies to hit the big screen. Over the next six months, nine new full-length movies are scheduled to premiere in the cinemas of Reykjavík, Fréttabladid reported.

Among the nine are three movies filmed by new directors—Grímur Hákonarson directs Sumarlandid (Summerland) which premieres next week, Reynir Lyngdal is still shooting Okkar eigin Osló (Our Own Oslo) which will be ready early next year and Baldvin Z is completing the teen movie Órói (Unrest) which is based on the novels of Ingibjörg Reynisdóttir and is set to premiere in mid-October.

Gauragangur (Racket), directed by Gunnar Björn Gudmundsson, will premiere at Christmas and Kurteist Fólk (Courteous People) by Ólafur Jóhannesson will also premiere at Christmas time.

Rokland (Stormland), directed by Marteinn Thórsson and based on the novel by Hallgrímur Helgason, does not yet have a confirmed date.

Djúpid (The Deep), directed by Balthasar Kormákur and based on a monologue by playwright Jón Atli Jónasson, is still in the making but will premiere early next year.
