In an untamed, primordial America, 400 years before Columbus will reach its shores, an epic battle unfolds between love and hate that will change one man's destiny and the future of a nation: Pathfinder, released on DVD by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment on 24th September 2007.
This action-adventure saga recreates one of the most riveting, yet never-before-seen, eras in human history - when Viking "dragon" ships from the mysterious Norse lands arrived out of nowhere to invade a pristine North America. Inspired by historical findings, yet forged with the magic and style of a modern graphic novel, Pathfinder comes to life in a cinematic experience filled with intense and ultra-violent primal action.
Starring Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings trilogy; The Bourne Supremacy; Doom) and directed by Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), the film begins with a Viking child who becomes the lone survivor of a shipwreck, after his marauding Norse clan raids a coastal Native American village for slaves. Despite his blonde hair and strange language - and concerns that evil will follow the boy wherever he goes - the ten year-old is adopted by the local Wampanoag Indians, who raise him to become a skilled hunter and warrior.
Fifteen years later, the pale young man known to his tribe as Ghost (Karl Urban) still battles to escape the demons of his past and be accepted as an equal in the tribe. Now, as the Vikings return to storm America again, they carry out a barbaric attack that will annihilate Ghost's beloved tribe and endanger the woman he loves. Once again, a survivor on the run and thirsting for blood vengeance, Ghost comes under the guidance of the Pathfinder, a powerful shaman who foresees the enraged young man's unexpected destiny: as the hard-won hero who will wage a one-man war against the Vikings and becomes his people's savior, fulfilling prophecy and creating legend.
