But beware! The trolls in this film are giant ones “wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore.”

The Troll Hunter is one hell of a ride, with trolls the size of King Kong,” said Magnet SVP Tom Quinn. “Andre Ovredal has created a one-of-a-kind creature feature that’s sure to entertain and wow audiences all over the world. We’re extremely proud to add it to the Magnet slate.”

Magnet will release the film theatrically in 2011.
