A teaser poster for Lords of Chaos, the upcoming drama thriller movie directed by Jonas Akerlund based on a script he co-wrote with Dennis Magnusson and starring Emory Cohen, Rory Culkin, Sky Ferreira, Valter Skarsgård, Jack Kilmer, Jonathan Barnwell, Sam Coleman, Wilson Gonzalez, Anthony De La Torre, Lucian Charles Collier, Anette Martinsen, Antonio Mancino, and James Edwyn:
“Åkerlund’s Lords of Chaos is the story of MAYHEM, a young Norwegian band that popularized a form of heavy metal music known as “True Norwegian Black Metal” with a flair for publicity, church-burning, and even murder.
It’s the haunting story of a dream turned nightmare for a group of teenagers who spiral out of control in an orgy of excess and ambition.
Oslo, 1987. Determined to escape his traditional upbringing, 17 year-old Euronymous (Rory Culkin) becomes fixated on creating ‘true Norwegian black metal’ with his band Mayhem. As he works to create increasingly shocking publicity stunts to put the band’s name on the map, the lines between show and reality start to blur as his bandmates come to believe the hype. Arson, violence and finally, a vicious murder shock the nation.”
And here’s a look at Rory Culkins when he goes full black metal:
