Danish filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev, the man behind the original Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, makes his stateside directorial debut with Dead Man Down, a thriller that reunites him with Noomi Rapace. The actress stars as Beatrice, a woman who is witness to a contract hit by professional killer Victor, played by Colin Farrell. She decides to blackmail the hitman, dragging him into a revenge plot against the pair of criminals that maimed her in a violent heist. We have the first trailer, which plays like a music video. Watch as Beatrice coyly pulls Vic into her troubled world against the backdrop of a very emotional soundtrack.
Dead Man Down was released March 8th, 2013 and stars Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Terrence Howard, Dominic Cooper, Isabelle Huppert, Luis Da Silva Jr., Stu Bennett, Franky G. The film is directed by Niels Arden Oplev.
