Vengeance: Inspired by The Northman is now on Fortnite

Later this month, The Northman, will give moviegoers a throwback to an earlier age of action films with its epic Viking revenge story. But if gamers want a taste of that action ahead of time, all they need is access to Fortnite.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, Focus Features and gaming firm Loaded have released a customized roleplaying game inside of Fortnite itself. If Fortnite players enter the island code 6089-1011-3272, it will take them to Vengeance: Inspired By the Northman. Note that Vengeance isn’t directly based on the movie, nor does it feature the likeness of The Northman‘s star, Alexander Skarsgård. Instead, it simply tries to recapture the feel of the film’s Viking action over the course of 20 hours of gameplay experience.

“We love how forward-thinking Focus has been as a partner,” said Ashley Hsieh, vice president of creative for Loaded, in a statement. “For a lot of brands, the future is scary enough that they continue to do what has worked in the past. When we get an opportunity to partner with a group who is willing to really think about things from a new perspective, it allows us to approach the market from a new direction. These are the types of engagements that change the paradigm, and we’re so proud to have been able to design this experience on behalf of the great team over at Focus.”

dead ringers trailer rachel weisz prime video

Rachel Weisz (Black Widow) is in double the trouble as the Oscar winner plays twins in Prime Video's upcoming series Dead Ringers, which released its official trailer on Wednesday morning. The psychological thriller is a gender-flipped adaption of David Cronenberg's 1988 film of the same name starring Jeremy Irons (House of Gucci).

Weisz plays Elliot and Beverly Mantle, twin gynecologists looking to push the limits of medical ethics and revolutionize women's health care. As one of the twins says in the trailer, they do work that is "groundbreaking, but hopeful." The twins are disturbingly codependent, as the women share everything from drugs to lovers and ideals.
