Watch a new teaser trailer above for theÂ first Scandinavian superhero movie,Â Rendel.
Production on Rendel was recenly relaunched due to an increased budget fromÂ Black Lion Pictures andÂ Frozen Flame Pictures.Â
"Thanks to the increased budget weâ€™re now able to do things we couldnâ€™tÂ include in our original plans. To be honest, almost everything hasÂ changed since first pre-production,"Â Jesse Haaja, the director and creatorÂ ofÂ Rendel, said in a statement. "The only thing that remainsÂ untouched is the original story: Rendel will still be a dark tale of aÂ man blinded by vengeance."
Rendel is a comic character created by the director Jesse Haaja 17 yearsÂ ago in Finland. Now, over a decade after the first sketches, the maskedÂ avenger Rendel is about to hit the cinemas. Rendel will be the firstÂ Finnish superhero movie ever.Â
Rendel has a 2016 release date starringÂ Kris Gummerus, Rami Rusinen, Matti Onnismaa, Alina Tomnikov, Aake Kalliala, Sami Huhtala, Marko Pesonen and Minna Nevanoja.
