Here we have the trailer to what has just become one of my most looked forward to movies of 2013, Dead Man Down. Starring the always brilliant Colin Farrell (Fright Night, In Bruges) and the lovely Noomi Rapace (the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus) and the Iron Man defector Terence Howard (Crash, Iron Man), the film is directed by Niels Arden Oplev (the original and superior Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
This is one of those trailers where the music really, really helps the trailer. A cover of Pink Floyd’s Shine on You Crazy Diamond plays near the end of the trailer and fits amazingly. It actually seems to be a good cover of the song, too. (Here’s the link to the cover version of the song by Kendra Morris.)
Here is the official synopsis of the film:
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.
And here is the trailer:
