“This is the movie business. There is no truth. It’s all lies.”

About Wrath of Gods

Before playing King Leonidas in ‘300’ Gerard Butler was relatively unknown. While waiting for ‘Phantom of the Opera’ to be released he took on the role of BEOWULF in international co-production Beowulf & Grendel. The production encountered ferocious Icelandic storms, volcanoes, leaky viking ships, financial desperation and endless setbacks. Before the first day of principal photography some of the crew were already wondering if they had angered the Norse Viking gods. At the end of the production some of them were glad they got out alive. All future filmmakers should see what it can take to make a movie in extreme circumstances. Wrath of Gods, the award winning documentary by Jon Gustafsson, is the hilarious inside story of true grit and determination that takes you deep into the realm of movie making, capturing the unwavering spirit of “do or die” as director, cast, and crew embark on Iceland to make the epic film Beowulf & Grendel.
