Based on ancient Norse Mythology, Mortal is a fantasy adventure epic that is being described as a fusion of previous superhero films such as Chronicle, X-Men and Thor. It will follow the story of a young boy, who must discover the origins of his extraordinary powers before he is captured by authorities hell-bent on con-demning him for an accidental murder. A breath-taking and thrilling origins adventure story.

Mortal is written and directed by Øvredal, who also serves as an executive producer along with Aage Aaberge, Aron Eli Coleite, Malene Ehlers, Joshua Horsfield, and Henrik Zein.
André Øvredal is best known for his feature directorial debut film Trollhunter and the 2016 supernatural horror film The Autopsy of Jane Doe. His most recent work was on Guillermo del Toro’s live-action adaptation of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. His upcoming projects are Amblin’s The Last Voyage of the Demeter, Stephen King’s The Long Walk film adaptation and a sequel to Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
Mortal is now in select theaters, digital platforms and VOD and is set to hit shelves on Blu-ray on November 10.
