The Northman held its world premiere in London earlier this week, and the first reactions to Robert Eggers' latest are now online.

For the most part, the acclaimed filmmaker's follow-up to The Lighthouse is being hailed as a major triumph, with many using the word "masterpiece" to describe the brutal Viking revenge tale. Intriguingly, it's also come to light that the movie will contain fantasy elements, with the action firmly rooted in Norse Mythology.

Set in Iceland at the turn of the 10th century, Skarsgård plays the Viking prince Amleth, who witnesses his father's (Hawke) murder at the hands of his own brother (Claes Bang) as a child and vows vengeance. He returns as an adult alongside a fellow warrior played by Anya-Taylor Joy, and begins his bloody campaign to rescue his mother Queen Gudrun (Kidman) and claim his birthright.

Check out a series of new character banners below along with the reactions.
