After much anticipation, we can finally see the first trailer for Lords of Chaos, the movie based on the book of the same name. The movie will open in theaters February 8 and be available on demand on February 22.
The film stars Rory Culkin as Euronymous, Anthony De La Torre as Hellhammer, Emory Cohen as Varg and Sky Ferreira as Ann-Marit. Jack Kilmer (Val Kilmer's son) plays Per Yngve "Dead" Ohlin, Valter Skarsgard plays Faust. Sam Coleman plays the role of Metalion, Jonathan Barnwell as Necrobutcher, Wilson Gonzalez Ochsenknecht as Blackthorn, Lucian Charles Collier as Occultus, Andrew Lavelle as Fenriz, and James Edwin as Manheim. The movie is based on the book of the same name, which covers the beginnings of the Norwegian black metal scene. The movie was made by renowned music video director and former Bathory drummer Jonas Akerlund.
Here are two other teaser trailers for the film:
Reaction in the black metal community has been less than positive. Darkthrone's Fenriz is vehemently against the film being made, and Mayhem's bassist Necrobutcher said in 2015 that he would do anything to stop the film being made. Last year, Necrobutcher noted "They contacted everybody behind our backs, our crew members, all kinds of people associated with us in a very sneaky way," and said he wouldn't sign off on any of their music being used in the film.
