New Pioneer Trailer Online
Aksel Hennie, Wes Bentley & Stephen Lang dive deep

Those Scandinavians continue to trot out more thrillers than anyone else, and the next to hit our screens will be Erik Skjoldbjærg's Pioneer, set around the oil industry in the early 1980s and featuring Headhunters' Aksel Hennie as a deep-sea diver caught up in a possible scandal.

 

Hennie plays Petter, a veteran diver hired to help construct an oil pipeline beneath the North Sea, along with his brother Knut (Andre Eriksen). But when tragedy strikes Petter is determined to find out what went wrong and who is responsible - which puts him on a collision course with an American co-worker and rival (Wes Bentley) and the company boss (Stephen Lang).

It's all directed by Erik Skjoldbjærg, director of the original Insomnia, and also stars Ane Dahl Torp and Stephanie Sigman. The film was released in Norway last August and screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, but Pioneer hits cinemas on April 11.
