Norwegian Ninja – Teaser Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on January 14, 2010

Back in November 2009 I posted some cool pictures from this Norwegian film. I thought it looked great and this teaser trailer still fills me with excitement for it.

Live for Films Norwegian correspondent, Øivind aka Anotherzen, sent me the link and translated the relevant details:

The Norwegian movie Kommandør Treholt & Ninja troppen’s (Commander Treholdt & the Ninja troop) premiere date is August 13th.

The movie tells the spectacular – and until now – “true” story of how Treholt and his troop of ninjas saved Norway under the Cold War, and is set just before the arrest and spy charges made to Treholt in 1984. The concept of the movie is looesly based on the bizarre miltary satire book: “Ninjateknikk II: Usynlig i strid 1978 av Arne Treholdt” (Loosly translated “Ninjatechnique II: Invisible in combat 1978 by Arne Treholdt” ) from 2005, written by the films director and scriptwriter Thomas Cappelen Malling.

The teaser trailer below shows Arne Treholdt and the Ninjatroop riding on torpedoshaped vehicles under water. They are tough, well equiped, and Treholdt is easily recognized by his name tag on his uniform, and his enormous glasses under his scuba mask.

Norwegian Ninja

Posted by LiveFor on November 20, 2009

Quite frankly this looks aces. Make sure you check out the official movie blog as there are lots more photos, concept art and info about the shoot. So far there is no footage, but it looks like it will be a lot of fun. Ninjas from Norway. Brilliant!

Thomas Malling’s Kommandør Treholt & Ninjatroppen is the true story of how Commander Arne Treholt and his Ninja Force saved Norway during the Cold War. The story takes place in the time right before Treholt’s arrest on espionage charges in 1984, and reveals a spectacularly different version of our recent past than has been previously known.
