"No matter where you go, there you are."


Lars Von Trier’s The Kingdom Trilogy is heading to Blu-ray

Filmmaker Lars von Trier’s internationally acclaimed, cult classic series, THE KINGDOM, tells the story of a hospital built on top of the old bleaching ponds in Copenhagen, where evil has taken root and medical science faces a daily struggle with itself; where the Swedes curse the Danes, and the mysterious and inexplicable blend together in a mixture of horror and humor. Available on Blu-ray for the first time, this February MUBI is releasing the complete series box set, featuring the original, critically acclaimed first two seasons – THE KINGDOM I & II – in stunningly restored, never-before-seen versions, as well as the long-awaited follow-up series, THE KINGDOM EXODUS.


Strange things are happening in the underbelly of a Danish hospital in Lars von Trier’s long unavailable, cult TV phenomenon The Kingdom I – a wickedly funny supernatural mystery. Let the battle between good and evil commence!


Picking up in the immediate aftermath of the first season’s startling cliffhanger, The Kingdom II sees the troubled hospital plagued by the rise of a greater evil. Masterfully harmonizing mordant humor and poignant pathos, Lars von Trier’s TV phenomenon scales new heights of white-knuckle suspense.


Lars von Trier returns to the world of Denmark’s most famous haunted hospital with this dazzling limited event series. Set in the run-up to Christmas, The Kingdom Exodus serves an incomparable blend of the nightmarish and the absurd as it beats a compulsively entertaining path towards the promise of Armageddon. An official selection for the 2022 Venice Film Festival, 2022 Toronto International Film Festival, and 2022 New York Film Festival.
