Noomi Rapace & Rachel McAdams Get Erotic in US 'Passion' Trailer
After premiering last fall at the Toronto and Venice Film Festivals, the new erotic thriller Passion from director Brian De Palma (The Untouchables, Mission: Impossible) is arriving in theaters later this summer. The seductive tale is fueled by sex and murder as Rachel McAdams (Midnight in Paris, The Notebook) and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) play two rising female executives in a multinational corporation whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn cut-throat. The reviews have been pretty lukewarm on this one, but it could be saucy enough to check out.
Here's the new US trailer for Brian De Palma's Passion, first found via The Film Stage:
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. The film premiered at the Toronto & Venice Film Fests last year and hits VOD on August 1st and limited theaters August 30th.
