Netflix have released the official trailer for the upcoming drama Against The Ice.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
In 1909, Denmark’s Arctic Expedition led by Captain Ejnar Mikkelsen was attempting to disprove the United States’ claim to Northeast Greenland. This claim was based on the assumption that Greenland was broken up into two different pieces of land. Leaving his crew behind with the ship, Mikkelsen embarks on a journey across the ice with his inexperienced crew member, Iver Iversen. The two men succeed in finding the proof that Greenland is one island, but returning to the ship takes longer and is much harder than expected. Battling extreme hunger, fatigue and a polar bear attack, they finally arrive to find their ship crushed in the ice and the camp abandoned. Hoping to be rescued, they now must fight to stay alive. As the days grow longer, their mental hold on reality starts to fade, breeding mistrust and paranoia, a dangerous cocktail in their fight for survival. Against the Ice is a true story of friendship, love and the awe-inspiring power of companionship.
The film is written by Joe Derrick and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, directed by Peter Flinth, and stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Joe Cole, Charles Dance and Heida Reed.
Against The Ice will become available on Netflix on the 2nd March 2022.
