With a classic style and plenty of intensity, an official theatrical trailer for the French crime thriller The Connection has just arrived, and it's simply excellent. Touted as the European side to the American classic The French Connection, the foreign film was picked up by Drafthouse Films to get a limited release this summer, and once you see this trailer for the film starring Oscar winner Jean Dujardin, you'll see why the cinephile distribution house wanted to get as many people to see it as possible. This looks like the kind of crime thriller they don't make anymore, with a vibe that calls back to the 70s filmmaking. Watch below!
Here's the new full-length trailer for Cédric Jimenez's The Connection, originally from Yahoo:
You can still watch the previous red band teaser trailer for The Connection right here.
The Connection (also known as La French) is directed by Cédric Jimenez (Aux Yeux de Tous) who also co-wrote the script with Audrey Diwan. Marseilles magistrate Pierre Michel (Jean Dujardin) is relentless in his crusade to dismantle the most notorious drug smuggling operation in history: the French Connection. In his crosshairs is charismatic and wealthy kingpin, Gatean "Tany" Zampa (Gilles Lellouche). Though the fearless and tenacious Michel will stop at nothing to ensure the crime ring's demise, "La French" always seems one step ahead, forcing Michel to choose between continuing to wage his war or ensuring his family's safety. Drafthouse Films will release the film in limited theaters early this summer on May 15th. Want to watch?
I was wondering what happened with this!! I was so pumped when FS showed us the first trailer nearly a year ago now. Really pumped to see this.

There he is! Dujardin! This looks so great.

The movie is horribly cliché and nowhere near as good as The French Connection.

It's a different movie. Simple as that. It's like, the French side of the story, forty years (or more), later. For me, it's too late ...

Of course, it looks good. But, why making this film now? Isn't there more interesting crime stories nowadays? It's becoming tiresome to follow some ever-new nostalgia and the old good justice...
