First look at Greengrass's take on the events of July 22nd, 2011.


October brings us two films based around the events of July 22nd, 2011, when Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik murdered 77 people in the name of far-right extremism. October 26th sees the release of Erik Poppe's Utøya-July 22, but before that we get Paul Greengrass's take - 22 July.

Based on Åsne Seierstad's book 'One of Us: The Story of an Attack in Norway - and Its Aftermath', 22 July details the events of the tragedy and the experience of a survivor in the months after.

22 July is in select UK cinemas and on Netflix October 10th.

Check out the first trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

In 22 July, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips, United 93) tells the true story of the aftermath of Norway’s deadliest terrorist attack. On 22 July 2011, 77 people were killed when a far-right extremist detonated a car bomb in Oslo before carrying out a mass shooting at a leadership camp for teens. 22 July uses the lens of one survivor’s physical and emotional journey to portray the country's path to healing and reconciliation.
