Trailer for Viggo Mortensen's THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY
This is the first trailer for Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst's new thriller The Two Faces of January. The movie was written and directed by screenwriter Hossein Amini, and it's based on the 1964 novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith. Amini is best know for writing films such as Drive and 47 Ronin. This looks like a solid movie, and you can't go wrong with Mortensen. The guy always chooses great projects to work on. Here's the synopsis:
In 1962 the American couple Chester MacFarland (Mortensen) and his wife Colette (Dunst) tour Greece and visit the Acropolis of Athens. There, they meet Rydal (Oscar Isaac), who works as a tour guide but scams tourists in the process. The MacFarlands invite Rydal to dinner, and Rydal, entranced by the couple's wealth and beauty, accepts their invitation. While Rydal visits the MacFarlands' hotel, Chester presses him to help move an unconscious body. Rydal helps, but eventually gets caught up in ensuing events. He also becomes infatuated with Colette and runs the risk of provoking Chester's ire.
The movie is set to be released in the UK on May 16th, but as of right now there is no US release date.
