Watch: New UK Trailer for Norwegian Crime Thriller 'Headhunters'
"Deliriously Entertaining!" A new UK trailer has arrived, originally via AICN on Yahoo now on YouTube, for a Norwegian crime thriller called Headhunters, based on Jo Nesbo's novel, about a corporate headhunter who moonlights as an art thief and gets into some serious shit while on one job. The film stars a mostly Scandinavian cast: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Synnøve Macody Lund, Julie R. Ølgaard and Aksel Hennie, who almost looks like a young Christopher Walken. This is a great trailer and builds on the story and intensity, ending on an excellent final note. I really want to see this, I always love a good heist. Check it out below!
