Pathfinder (R2) in September
Fox Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Pathfinder on 24th September 2007. Shrouded in the mists of legend of a time when Vikings tried to conquer North America, Pathfinder tells the story of a young Norse boy left behind after his clan shipwrecks on the Eastern shores. Despite his lineage, the boy is raised by the very Indians his kinsmen set out to destroy. Now, as the Vikings return to stage another barbaric raid, the 25-year-old Norse warrior (Karl Urban – Lord Of The Rings, The Chronicles Of Riddick), facing a personal war between those who sired him and those who raised him, the reluctant hero takes up arms against the war-mongering barbarian hordes, leaving a trail of vengeful devastation in his wake.
Directed by Marcus Nispel (2003’s remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) from a script by Laeta Kalogridis (Night Watch) the film also stars Moon Bloodgood (Eight Below), Russell Means (Last Of The Mohicans) and perennial film villain Clancy Brown (Highlander, “Carnivale”) as the leader of the invading Norse warriors.
