Dead Man Down sort of came out of nowhere and FilmDistrict is certainly performing a strong online push for the film, which stars Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Terrence Howard and Dominic Cooper.
The film reteams Rapace with director Niels Arden Oplev who led her through the original Swedish adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo that put her on the map and she stars alongside Farrell as one of two strangers whose mutual desire for revenge draws them together and triggers an escalating trail of mayhem.
I’ve discussed the plot further in previous posts, which also feature the trailer, but I figured with this one I would go with the more vague, studio supplied script.
Dead Man Down serves as Oplev’s English-language debut and will hit theaters on March 8.
Check out the five additional new images below. If you’re wondering, the cinematography was done by Paul Cameron whose previous work includes a co-credit on Michael Mann’s Collateral (which I actually thought Dion Beebe had done that all himself) and Tony Scott’s Man on Fire.
