In 709 DC, in the Iron Age, a spacecraft crashes in the Viking kingdom of Herot, Norway, and the pilot Kainan survives. He turns the beacon on; learns the language and culture of the planet using a machine; and finds that the predator, Moorwen, that he was transporting, had escaped. While chasing the alien monster, he finds a village completely destroyed and is arrested by the warrior Wulfric, believing that he killed the locals - Kainan is brought to Herot as a prisoner.

More Movie Taglines:
- It destroyed his world. He won't let it destroy ours.
- Wulfric: This is where your ship went down? Kainan: That's right. Wulfric: In a lake? Kainan: Don't ask.
Freya: If you truly believe that you write the tale of your life, then the end is up to you.
Kainan: This thing has carved out a territory and you're in it!
- Renny Harlin was originally slated to direct when Howard McCain was pitching the script to film studios some years back.
This is the first film in history to feature Old Norse, the ancestor of Modern Icelandic and several other Scandinavian languages. Howard McCain used an Icelandic professor to help translate the dialogue and to teach the actors how to speak the ancient language.
Karl Urban was originally considered for the part of Kainan, but he pulled out due to delays in production and went on to film Pathfinder (2007), another period movie involving Vikings.
Originally the film was to be shot in New Zealand with a significantly higher budget. They already scouted New Zealand and Weta was going to do the effects. But the financing fell through and the production got delayed.
Thomas Jane and Sean Bean were among those considered to play Kainan, before James Caviezel agreed to the part.
