I saw this preview not too long ago and I must say that the film looks mighty sick!
Here's the link to the trailer: http://www.pathfinderthemovie.com/
I noticed that the only person I recognized in the film was the man who plays Eomer in the Lord of the Rings movies. Overall this looks to be a very interesting and action packed film about Eric the Red and his landings in the extreme North American continent. The only thing I cant comprehend is why they make the Vikings look like evil demons of some sorts, I mean...that's nice if you want to get the point across that they're the protaganist of the movie but I dont believe that all Vikings wore all black with armor made out of borns and horns and evil things of that ilk.

Is this news to you that not all movies are historically accurate? ;)

Evidence shows the Vikings landing in Nova Scotia and northeastern USA. There have been stones found with Viking runes on them as far east as the Mississippi River.
Does it actually say its about Eric the Red? I mean this could be just a bunch of Vikings looking for adventure and slaves.
IIRC they founded Vinland and Markland in North America but were driven out because tehy did not have a large enough technology leapt to hold a advantage and being outnumbered.
