"You have no idea what I'm thinking…" Magnolia has debuted the full US trailer for screenwriter Hossein Amini's directorial debut The Two Faces of January, starring Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst. Ohh, plus should've-been-nominated-for-Oscar Oscar Isaac, too. We've already featured one international trailer for this film once before, but now we have a release date and the final US trailer, which plays heavily on the very noir / mystery plot in this. Obviously some of the quotes they've chosen reference Hitchcock and how much of a great suspense thriller this is, which it certainly looks to be. I'm not sure how well Oscar Isaac fits in, but usually anything with Viggo is worth watching. And he looks great in this, as always. Enjoy.
Here's the official US trailer for Hossein Amini's The Two Faces of January, in high def from Apple:
Screenwriter Hossein Amini makes a stylish directing debut with this sleek thriller set in Greece and Istanbul, 1962, and adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel. Intrigue begins at the Parthenon when wealthy American tourists Chester MacFarland (Mortensen) and his young wife Collete (Dunst) meet American expat Rydal (Isaac), a scammer working as a tour guide. Instead of becoming his latest marks, the two befriend him, but a murder at the couple's hotel puts all three on the run together and creates a precarious bond between them as the trio's allegiance is put to the test. Two Faces of January is written & directed by Hossein Amini (scripts for The Wings of the Dove, Drive, 47 Ronin) adapted from Patricia Highsmith's book. It first premiered at Berlinale. Magnolia will release the film in limited theaters on September 26th.
