Must Watch: US Trailer for Dark Comedy 'In Order of Disappearance'
"If Norwegian kids disappear, there's always some obnoxious parents out looking for them." Yes! Finally!! Magnolia has debuted the official US trailer for a Norwegian film called In Order of Disappearance, from director Hans Petter Moland. The film originally premiered two years ago, back in 2014, and is just now getting a US release. But that doesn't matter because it's a great film, a fantastic dark comedy about a quiet snow plow driver in Norway who decides to get revenge on the drug cartel that killed his son. Stellan Skarsgård stars and he's so badass in this. The cast includes Bruno Ganz, Pål Sverre Hagen, Jakob Oftebro, and Kristofer Hivju. I saw this film at the Berlin Film Festival back in 2014 and it was one of my favorites of the festival, I highly recommend seeing it once it opens in the US. Until then, take a look below.
Here's the new US trailer for Hans Petter Moland's In Order of Disappearance, on Magnolia's YouTube:
Introverted and hard-working snow plow driver Nils (Stellan Skarsgard) has just been named Citizen of The Year, when he receives news that his son has died of a heroin overdose. Disbelieving the official report, Nils soon uncovers evidence of the young man’s murder—a victim in a turf war between the local crime boss, known as "The Count", and his Serbian rivals. Armed with heavy machinery and a good dose of beginner’s luck, Nils embarks upon a quest for revenge that soon escalates into a full-blown underworld gang war, with the body count spiralling ever higher and higher. In Order of Disappearance is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Hans Petter Moland (of Comrade Pedersen, A Somewhat Gentle Man) from a script by Kim Fupz Aakeson. This premiered at the Berlin Film Festival back in 2014 and opened in Europe years ago. Magnolia will finally release In Order of Disappearance in US theaters + VOD starting August 26th.

Love Stellan S. Love Bruno Ganz, but didn't see him in the trailer. This does look good, but it was difficult from watching the trailer that this is a very dark satire/comedy...which I am very interested in this because of that aspect. I wonder why is hasn't been able to find a U.S. release date for so long? Hmmmm.....

Stellan Skargard is so good when he gets a good role. 'A somewhat gentle man' is also very nice film from him ... I didn't still watch this one because there's too many films to watch. So, I'll take this as an invitation to do so as soon as possible ...
