We have the U.S. Trailer for Joe Nesbo's Headhunters, thanks to our friends at /Film. The film was directed by Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (Fallen Angels, Buddy). It stars Aksel Hennie, Synnøve Macody Lund, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Lars Gudmestad and Ulf Ryberg penned the screenplay.
Here is the synopsis:
HEADHUNTERS stars the talented Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) as Roger, a charming scoundrel and Norway’s most accomplished headhunter. Roger is living a life of luxury well beyond his means, and stealing art to subsidize his expensive lifestyle. When his beautiful gallery owner wife introduces him to a former mercenary in the possession of an extremely valuable painting, he decides to risk it all to get his hands on it, and in doing so discovers something which makes him a hunted man.
Headhunters arrives in theaters on April 27. Watch the trailer in HD at IMDB and below.
I am very excited to see this film and hope it is playing in my area. I love the gritty tone and violence of this intense thriller. If the film keeps me on the edge of my seat as much as the trailer does, then I will be very happy.
What would you do if you were being hunted by a mercenary?
