Exclusive: New Poster For A Hijacking
Pirates! In an adventure with Danes

01 February 2013  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Love Scandinavian drama? Invested heavily in a Sarah Lund knitwear range? Still missing Meyer from the first season of The Killing? A Hijacking is the film for you. The Danish-Norwegian high-seas drama has a starkly eye-catching new poster that showcases the two non-human elements of its story: guns and boats. Not to scale.


A Hijacking is written and directed by Tobias Lindholm, who co-wrote The Hunt and whose tight storytelling made Borgen such a big hit on both sides of the North Sea. It's informed and inspired by the spate of Somali pirate attacks in recent years and is set aboard hijacked Danish cargo vessel, MV Rozen, in the Indian Ocean.

The Søren Malling
- The Killing's Meyer - plays the company boss back in Copenhagen who decides to negotiate with the unpredictable pirates himself, leaving the lives of the crew members hanging in the balance. Days turn into weeks and the claustrophobic confines of the vessel become a terrifying prison for the sailors aboard.

Paul Greengrass's Captain Phillips is arriving in October with Tom Hanks in its wheelhouse. This should keep you tided over until then. It's out on May 10.
