Headhunters Trailer

"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!

An accomplished headhunter thief risks everything to obtain a painting owned by a former mercenary.

Headhunters was directed by Norwegian filmmaker Morten Tyldum, of the films Fallen Angels, Buddy and a couple of shorts previously. The screenplay was written by Lars Gudmestad and Ulf Ryberg, based on Jo Nesbø's bestselling novel first published in 2008. This premiered at Locarno and played many European film festivals last year, and was at Fantastic Fest in Austin. Magnolia is distributing over here, but we're not sure on the actual US release date yet. You can follow updates on their official Facebook page. Look good?

I'm Norwegian, so I saw this about half a year ago. It's an OK film. Terrible ending though.

I remember watching the original trailer and wanting to see this. Unless Netflix picks it up I'm gonna have to use some alternative methods to watch it.

I really enjoyed the movie (seen it here in Sweden), not perfect, but very suspenseful with great direction and acting.

The trailer is excellent - but from the Scandinavian comments above it would seem that it's better than the movie. Still interested in watching it though.
