Danish sales powerhouse TrustNordisk has unveiled first footage for the final season of Lar von Trier’s supernatural series trilogy The Kingdom Exodus.
The latest installment completes Trier’s 1990s cult series The Kingdom set in a hospital built on top of the old bleaching ponds in Copenhagen, where evil has taken root.
The new clip reveals the opening scene in which Danish actress Bodil Jørgensen, in the role of the main character Karen, sleepwalks her way into the eerily empty hospital late at night.
TrustNordisk has also announced a raft of new territory deals for the show, including Benelux (September Films), Czech Republic and Slovakia (Aerofilms). Previously announced deals include to Germany and Austria (Koch Films), Spain (Filmin), Japan (Synca Creations) and South Korea (AtNine).
“We are excited to be experiencing immense interest from buyers worldwide with several negotiations still going on and soon to be revealed. The first footage surely underlines the uniqueness of the series that continue to intrigue the global market,” said TrustNordisk Managing Director Susan Wendt.
The show is produced by Louise Vesth for Zentropa Entertainments with NENT Group and DR as co-producers.
