The Quake Home Video

“The Quake” Is Ready to Rumble Your Home Theater System

Norway had a major hit with The Wave back in 2015, breaking box office records and earning a spot as Norway's official submission to the Oscars that year. Its awesomely named director Roar Uthaug went on to direct the Tomb Raider reboot. Now, the producers are back with a sequel, ready to lay waste to the country once again.

Kristoffer Joner (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) reprises his role as Kristian, a geologist out to save his family. Playing with Norway's own tragic history, the film sees the capital of Oslo devastated by an earthquake even bigger than the one that rattled the city in 1904.

The Quake will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on March 19, packed with special features, including several behind-the-scenes featurettes, as well as a look at the film's impressive stunts and visual effects. You can also get the film on Digital HD on iTunes and other platforms the same day.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
