The true-story-inspired survival thriller Against the Ice is gearing up to premiere on Netflix. From director Peter Flinth, Against the Ice is an adaptation of the true story recounted in book Two Against the Ice by explorer Ejnar Mikkelson.


Set in 1909, the film follows an expedition in Denmark led by Captain Ejnar Mikkelson who aims to discredit the Us’ claim to North-Eastern Greenland. After leaving their crew behind with their ship, two men head out across the ice. Upon completing their mission, they set out to return to their ship, but takes longer and is much harder than expected, leaving them battling extreme hunger, fatigue, and facing a polar bear attack.


Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, known for his role as Jaime Lannister on “Game of Thrones,” stars as Captain Ejnar. His companion Iver Iverson is played by Joe Cole (“Peaky Blinders”). Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones”), and Heida Reed  (Poldark) co-star.


The survival thriller that made its World Premiere at the 72nd Berlin Film Festival last month, premieres on Netflix on March 2, 2022.
