Watch: First Trailer for De Palma's 'Passion' with McAdams & Rapace
"We make a really good team." TIFF has debuted the first short teaser trailer for Brian De Palma's new film Passion, a passionate (obviously) romantic thriller starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace. Ohh this is going to be a delightful way to start off your morning. It's a teaser, almost like those for Prometheus and Alien, that flashes the title inbetween intriguing footage that makes you drool. You'll see what I mean. I know this is just an early teaser, but oh is it enticing, and I expect it's going to make a lot of people go a little crazy in anticipation for its fall festival premieres. Have I said enough? Give this teaser trailer a look below.
Passion is directed by Brian De Palma (Carrie, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito's Way, Mission Impossible, Snake Eyes, The Black Dahlia, Redacted), and the film is actually a remake of the 2010 French film Love Crime directed by Alain Corneau, starring Kristen Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier as two feuding corporate executives. In this version, a young businesswoman named Isabelle (Rapace) plots murderous revenge after her boss and mentor Christine (McAdams) steals some of her fresh ideas. Things only get more complicated when Isabelle ends up in bed with one of Christine's lovers. De Palma wrote and directed the film, which will premiering at the Toronto and Venice Film Festivals this fall. Impressions?
