“at beaconI managed to do it,” Eggers continues NorthmanI’m proud of the movie, but not everything is as I would have liked it to be. So I’d like to do something with the scale and scale so that I can actually get what’s in my mind on screen.”

It’s Eggers’ biggest production to date, which means it first had the trouble of dealing with test offers and pressure from major production companies.
“My first two films were tested for marketing, but I didn’t have to change anything.

The pressure of the studio made the movie what I originally showed them, which was the most entertaining Robert Eggers movie. Honestly, without their pressure, I couldn’t do it. It’s hard for me.
