AICN Exclusive! See Behind The Scenes Of TROLLHUNTER!
TROLLHUNTER played Fantastic Fest last year and got a pretty terrific response. I haven't seen it yet, but judging from this exclusive Behind The Scenes 3-minute video, it looks all kinds of awesome. Right now TROLLHUNTER is available at Magnolia On Demand and will open in theaters June 10th. Here's a look:
Here's the synopsis:

I actually want to see this movie.

It's as if someone put a curse on Henson's creature shop and let the result loose in the woods. Will pay to watch this immediately.

Oh I thought this was a movie about someone cleaning up the TalkBacks on this site! I would pay to see that.

Howzabout lifting that lil ol ban? I likes to use my old handle. Be a pal, huh?

When monsters in movies are hunted and killed by people for no other reason than people fucked their shit up and they got pissed. Why can't we just leave them alone. That's why I never finished playing Shadow of the Colossus, I just felt too guilty...

it was pretty good. the first troll effects were a little syfy but each one got progressively better looking. there were some really clever moments (think three billy goats gruff on the bridge) and a great gag about the placement of electrical towers... and the battle with the last troll is epic. i'd love to see this director tackle a godzilla-like movie. the one let down involves the main (young) actor- without spoiling there was an entire build up with him that led to absolutely nothing of value. maybe that was part of the joke? you'll understand when you see it. you think there is going to be a major life event with him but the result by the end of the film is so dull compared to what could have been.

Ugh, no fucking way. Then, I was like NO FUCKIN' WAY! Missile launcher to troll nads = at least worth a curiosity viewing.

Pretty different, a lot of fun, and well done for the budget. I'd love to see more like it.
May 4, 2011, 11:33 p.m. CST
Really. Best use of the faux-doc format... ever.
I need to see this. Looks really cool.

Cool monster design and nice FX. Interesting character. Among the better fake documentary flicks.

Agreed on your comment about the main young guy. I watched this movie and was thinking that he was going to 'go through some sort of change in life,' but alas nothing. I totally didn't even think about it until you said something. I like the subtle acting of the Hunter - the guy seemed like a distant relative of Quint from "Jaws." P.S. Don't forget your troll filth that looks mysteriously like a bar of soap you get at some hotels. Probably smells the same, too.

One of the gems from last years FF. Really a lot of fun.

The one in the moving vehicle, with the foot coming down? Now it's kind of bluish night. I thought the previous style was more lifelike.

oh man, I LOVE Otto Jesperson, Glenn Erland Tosterud, Johanna Mørck, Tomas Alf Larsen, Urmila Berg-Domaas, and Hans Morten Hansen.

im not fond of "found footage films" but this is just great i loved every minute of it
May 5, 2011, 12:56 a.m. CST
Next month's "sneak peak", June 8th. I'm watching "Hobo with a shotgun" tonight! Hell yah!

Because the trailer includes every single money shot in the film. I saw the film at the True/False film fest earlier this year, and was immensely disappointed that I'd already seen every single one of the coolest moments in one little trailer. If the idea of this sounds good to you, see it. But stay away from the trailer. Going in without any idea would be delightful.
May 5, 2011, 1:36 a.m. CST
Blair Witch and Destination Truth. As I do take guilty pleasure in watching DT, this looks like one to see.
May 5, 2011, 1:57 a.m. CST
I wondered the same thing. A lot of the footage here looks more monochromatic-blue than how I remember the film being. Which would be a great shame, as the realistic lighting & color was one of the most remarkable things about the film - it really increased the impact of the effects for me.

And I saw Thor two weeks ago in Oslo. You americans are always so far behind Norway, and you keep adopting every little piece of norwegian culture. What's next, free health care for all americans? <P>I'm telling you, the entire world is becoming norwegianized!

Guess I will be checking this one out then!

I just saw this with the Boston Independent Film Festival (to a very excited crowd!) and it was great. The sound design really is built for the big screen, though, so see it there if you can. It's also a treat to see some fine craftsmanship on display.

He hates trolls.....

Couldn't they have used a REAL person for the voiceover instead of "Sonokinetic Trailer Guy"? That just makes it seem more like a cheap-ass fan-flic than a real movie...
May 5, 2011, 9:01 a.m. CST
that would be terrible.
May 5, 2011, 9:20 a.m. CST
glad i saw this excellent film already, but this is why i dont watch trailers anymore.
May 5, 2011, 9:39 a.m. CST
not available through Xfinity. Ha-rumph. Seems like a good thing to fix, if you're Magnolia or even Xfinity (ComCrAP by another name)
May 5, 2011, 9:58 a.m. CST
Man, this is bad cinema, this movie makes me want to read a comic man, oh, terrible!
May 5, 2011, 11:42 a.m. CST
and that's the best way to discover the trolls just the same as the characters- you are taken by surprise. this trailer does ruin that, as well as the impressive scale of many of the shots when they play out. but i guess if they didn't show anything, you wouldn't want to see it :/
May 5, 2011, 12:34 p.m. CST
og eksklusivitet er et flyktig begrep...
May 5, 2011, 12:44 p.m. CST
SPOILERS!!! ive heard a few people complain that there was build up with the kid that got bit, and then 'it didnt mean anything' sure it did. at the end the blood test showed the kid got rabies from the troll bite.. which explained why some of the trolls were acting all crazy, leaving their 'safe zone', and endangering humans. which also explained why the troll hunter had to kill them, he was just like a wildlife protection agent. had to put down the rabies infected animals. (i also thought it was a great little addition that they had a scene of him feeling regret for some of the trolls he'd slaughtered.)

I can't stand the indie film world, I hate all the big festivals and indie film websites, I hate all the bullshit about shooting with the latest greatest tech otherwise you're not professional, and I hate how indies seem to refuse to rediscover genre as the tried and true way to cinematic success... I also hate the lack of compelling stories and the level of forgiveness if it has this or that hot 'indie' actress of the moment, someone's favorite indie band doing the soundtrack, and, in the techie Red/F3/Arri Alexa/DSLR's moire too much obsessed world, I hate the forgiveness of boring-as-fuck beautiful image without any story whatsoever... I'm filled with a lot of hate, yes... I should start a blog called indie-killer... but I FUCKING LOVE when someone does something like this... big, bold, and with that "we're gonna take you on a crazy-ass journey" swagger that you can just see in the bravura filmmaking (read, non-indie 'twee' cinema stylings, as I like to call it). Trolls getting rockets in the nuts (going by what someone else said, I didn't actually see that, I saw one or two shots of the troll skipping through and then turned it off) gets my ticket every time. These guys deserve to go onto bigger things. Kudos! Also, does anyone know the budget of this thing?

I am the Troll Hunter and you my drained brained friend have been... CHOPPED!!!

It really is worth your time. i absolutely loved it and it only gets better with repeat viewings
May 5, 2011, 3:30 p.m. CST
Okay, this is a movie on the cheap, so I should be cut it some slack, but the concept made me think of something much grander. I'd rather see monsters in their natural fantasy world setting like in Dragonslayer than more cheap 90s Sightings videos-to-movies. Season of the Witch is probably not going to help my cause...

Hunting trolls and fools like nobody's business, with his Tiger Blood and Adonis DNA!
