22 July will be released on Netflix on October 10.

The trailer for the upcoming Netflix movie 22 July has just dropped. The film 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.

 

Actor Anders Danielsen Lie plays the titular role of the Norwegian far-right extremist Anders Behring Breivik. According to the extremist, it was a sign of protest against the government.



The movie, based on the book One of Us: The Story of an Attack on Norway - And Its Aftermath, authored by Asne Seierstad, tells the story of the survival of Norwegian citizens, post the dreadful attack.

22 July will be made available on Netflix on October 10, in addition to a limited theatrical release in the US to qualify it for the Oscars.
