Remember that trailer we posted the other day for Outlander? You know, the upcoming action fantasy/sci-fi mash-up with the insanely crazy plot involving both Vikings and Aliens? Well another trailer has dropped on the interwebs, and clears up some of the misconceptions I had. For instance, the movie doesn’t have dragons. We get a better look at the alien monster at the story’s core. Oh, and they corrected the spelling error in the Lord of the Rings title credit. Call me crazy but I’m still really interested in seeing this flick. Too bad The Weinstein Co will probably botch the marketing. Watch the trailer after the jump.

I’m not a viking movie type of guy, but who is? The international movie trailer for Outlander has hit the interwebs and I can’t tell you how excited I suddenly am to see this flick. I mean, who doesn’t want to see a movie about “vikings teaming with a human alien to take on an alien creature”? Watch the trailer below, and tell me what you think! Am I insane, or could this be a lot of fun?

A Fierce and animal-like creature, the Moorwen is intent on causing harm to those it perceives have wronged it. As the Moorwen kills everything in its path, Kainan must work together with the Vikings to destroy the beast before it destroys them all.

The Weinstein Co have yet to announce a U.S. release date for Outlander.

Though it recently showed at Cannes and received a fan-site response equal to, “if you want to watch a movie about vikings and a human alien versus an alien creature, go for it,” Outlander still remains tucked in at the Weinstein Co. and is without a release domestically. Meanwhile, an international release for the James Caviezel (Passion of the Christ) sci-fi actioner is tentatively planned for late summer. Worth noting is how easy it is to get this film mixed up with Marcus Nispel’s dismally received Pathfinder (suped-up vikings versus Indians). Shock received the Frank Frazetta-ish poster, click for the high-res, and you can find more info on the flick here. Thought it was worth a look–cool concept in theory–too bad the film itself seems permanently floundered.
