New US Trailer for Swedish Thriller 'Easy Money', aka 'Snabba Cash'
Welcome to an elite society. The Weinstein Company has released the official US trailer for Easy Money, the Swedish crime thriller formerly known as Snabba Cash, which already has a sequel shot and ready. Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman stars in the gritty, violent crime thriller about organized crime and drugs. It's an intriguing trailer, trying to hide the dialogue, using only music and copiously prominent text ("from 'The Killing'!") to try and sell this to a wide audience. Don't forget, Martin Scorsese is "presenting" this in US theaters this summer, but only in NY & LA to start. Take a look at the trailer, plus a sequel bonus, below.

We were also tipped onto the official trailer for the sequel to this film, Snabba Cash II, which has already been shot in Sweden and will be released there this year. Thanks to our friends at MovieZine for the details.
Watch the Swedish trailer for Babak Najafi's Snabba Cash II, originally from MovieZine.se:
Directed by up-and-coming Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa (Outside Love, Safe House), Easy Money is a Swedish crime thriller based on the international best-selling novel Snabba Cash, written by Jens Lapidus. Lower-class business student Johan "JW" Westlund (Kinnaman) falls in love with a sexy heiress while living a double life mingling with Stockholm's wealthy elite. To keep up the facade of his lifestyle, he's lured into a world of crime. This first premiered in Scandinavia back in early 2010, but is just now being released in the US thanks to Martin Scorsese's push. The Weinstein Company will be releasing Easy Money in limited NY & LA theaters starting around July 13th this summer. Anyone interested? Or have you seen these already?

Soo many fails! First, Easy Money? Hasn't there been 20 effin films with that title. None can top the one with Charlie Sheen and Tomas Haden Church: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120678/ oh wait that was Free Money... SEE MY POINT! Second, who care who "brought" what. Sorry, with recent movies brought to us by Tarantino and Guillermo del Toro being so meh, it just brings everyone's reputation down. Finally, I really have to agree with filmtogo on the music, it really kept me from focusing on the movie. Did anyone else keep pushing buttons thinking they were playing Boom Boom Rocket during the trailer?

AnyBody who love " ROBOCOP " must see this , This Is Alex Morphy , see it enough because you can't see his face anymore after veiling Robocop his Mask (kidding) Beside it is mindful , well-made , brutal , piece of art crime movie with his flaws. Holleywood done better version of it before (goodfellas , casino , ... ) but it is swedish crime story with another culture and another vision. Holleywood is clever , if film was bad , they didnt take helmet of safe house to its director and first role of robocop remake to his actor either. Safe House was average and predictable but totally entertaining , harmless and enjoyable. Easy Money definitely Worth Watching , intriguing and engaging Dont miss it " Dead Or Alive , You Coming With Me " " I Know You ! You Must Be Dead ! We Kill You ! 9 Aug 2013 , Oh God let me be alive

Brought to you by Scorsese... In the tradition of Stieg Larsson... From the same country as Ingmar Bergman... By a director who once watched a film by Orson Welles!
