Dead Man Down Trailer Shoots In

Dead Man Down Trailer Shoots In

Since they worked together on the original version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, star Noomi Rapace has seen her career spark in Hollywood, while director Niels Arden Oplev has mostly worked on TV projects and developing other movies. Now they’ve reunited – and pulled in Colin Farrell and Terrence Howard – for revenge thriller Dead Man Down, which has just put its first trailer online.

Farrell plays Victor, the right hand man to an underground New York crime lord (Howard). When he’s spotted killing on the job by Rapace’s damaged Beatrice, she reaches out to him.

See, she’s been the victim of one of Howard’s actions and she’s burning with vengeance. So she blackmails Victor (who has his own reasons to be angry with Howard) and has him start to take down his boss’s operations. Which naturally leads to more trouble than either of them expect…

The trailer, which also gives us a glimpse of co-star Dominic Cooper in a action, runs a little long and gives a lot away, but it certainly appears to point to a film that may have more on its mind than the usual action output of producer Neal Moritz. US audiences will see this one on March 8, but there’s no sign of a UK date just yet.

Long trailer, but it doesn't actually give all that much away. The central premise and then lots of action, that's pretty much all that's there. Looks good though, I always enjoy the flicks Farrel chooses (yes, even Total Recall) thanks to his performance/ability to choose films that've got something interesting about them More
