Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is ready to take a gruelling and possibly life threatening trip in his upcoming survival drama Against the Ice. The trailer for the same was released recently, and fair warning, it has some graphic sequences which really hit home the message of how the human spirit can endure even in the most draining circumstances.

Ejnar Mikkelsen (Waldau), is an explorer tasked with retrieving the findings of a group of Danish explorers who have gone missing from an unforgiving and harsh icy landscape in Greenland. Only one man, Iver Iversen(Joe Cole), is brave enough to accompany him on the expedition. The duo start their journey with optimism, only to find their spirits and physique tested to the extremes as their expedition progresses.

The trailer shows in excruciating detail all that the two have to undergo, coupled with some haunting and foreboding music. In addition to the physical toll the freezing temperatures put them through, the duo find it taxing to even simply maintain their sanity in the harsh isolation. And as the days go by they start losing hope of making it out of the place alive when, if and when rescue does arrive. A sequence wherein Cole’s toast to ‘hope’ is met with an angry stare by Waldau, perfectly captures the sentiment the trailer gives off.

The film is directed by Peter Flinth and written by Waldau and Joe Derrick. It also features Charles Dance and Heida Reed in supporting roles.

The upcoming film is based on the real life story of survival of polar explorer Mikkelsen, who made an expedition to Greenland in the 1900s. The film is based on his memoir Two Against the Ice.

Against the Ice will premiere on Netflix on March 2.
