FilmDistrict has released the first trailer for their crime thriller Dead Man Down, and it looks like a great and intense film! It stars Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Dominic Cooper and Terrence Howard. This is the first English language film directed by Swedish filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev who directed Rapace in the original Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film trilogy. It looks like he did a solid job with this one, and the trailer shows off some really cool shots, some crazy action scenes, and a man being eaten by rats.
Following the cinematic phenomenon “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” acclaimed filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev and brooding beauty Noomi Rapace reunite for another thrilling tale of vengeance. Colin Farrell joins the prestigious team as brave enforcer Victor, right hand man to an underground crime lord in New York City. He seeks to avenge the death of his wife and daughter caused by his boss. When his employer is threatened by a mysterious killer, Victor also becomes detective. Victor is seduced and blackmailed by Beatrice (Noomi Rapace), a victim turned avenger whose intense chemistry leads them spiraling into payback delivered in violent catharsis. From producer Neal Moritz (The Fast and the Furious franchise, I Am Legend) and Joel Wyman (Fringe, Keen Eddie) comes a triumphant action thriller, a powerful portrait of the relationship between two people caught in the crosshairs of revenge.
