New US Trailer for Swedish Thriller 'Easy Money', aka 'Snabba Cash'
Welcome to an elite society. The Weinstein Company has released the official US trailer for Easy Money, the Swedish crime thriller formerly known as Snabba Cash, which already has a sequel shot and ready. Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman stars in the gritty, violent crime thriller about organized crime and drugs. It's an intriguing trailer, trying to hide the dialogue, using only music and copiously prominent text ("from 'The Killing'!") to try and sell this to a wide audience. Don't forget, Martin Scorsese is "presenting" this in US theaters this summer, but only in NY & LA to start. Take a look at the trailer, plus a sequel bonus, below.

We were also tipped onto the official trailer for the sequel to this film, Snabba Cash II, which has already been shot in Sweden and will be released there this year. Thanks to our friends at MovieZine for the details.

Directed by up-and-coming Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa (Outside Love, Safe House), Easy Money is a Swedish crime thriller based on the international best-selling novel Snabba Cash, written by Jens Lapidus. Lower-class business student Johan "JW" Westlund (Kinnaman) falls in love with a sexy heiress while living a double life mingling with Stockholm's wealthy elite. To keep up the facade of his lifestyle, he's lured into a world of crime. This first premiered in Scandinavia back in early 2010, but is just now being released in the US thanks to Martin Scorsese's push. The Weinstein Company will be releasing Easy Money in limited NY & LA theaters starting around July 13th this summer. Anyone interested? Or have you seen these already?
