When he was a top powerlifter and strongman competitor, Hjalti Arnason's nickname was Ursus, and bears worldwide probably felt honored by the comparison.

Explaining that he is busy working on trailers and tending to other last minute details, Arnason said that he cannot walk around Reykjavik without being surrounded by people asking about the film. "It's just like a Tom Cruise move," Arnason said.
