Carla Juri & Gemma Chan in New US Trailer for 'Intrigo: Dear Agnes'
"How much are you prepared to pay?" Lionsgate has released an official US trailer for the next film in the Intrigo trilogy, this one officially titled Intrigo: Dear Agnes. We featured the trilogy teaser last year, and the main trailer for Intrigo: Death of an Author earlier this year. This is the second feature film in the big screen adaptation of the mystery series. With the death of her husband, Agnes is desperate for money. Then she runs into her old friend Henny, who is enraged at her unfaithful spouse, Peter. Henny makes Agnes a shocking offer—enough cash to live a better life, if she will murder Peter and get rid of him. All this leads to an "explosive, unforgettable climax." Based on a series of short stories from Sweden, of course. This specific murder thriller stars Carla Juri, Gemma Chan, Jamie Sives, Jason Wong, Laurie Kynaston, and Cal MacAninch. The first story featured Ben Kingsley and Benno Fürmann. This one looks a bit more soap opera-y than the first film, but that might be just what the doctor ordered for some of us. Take a look below.
Here's the full US trailer (+ posters) for Daniel Alfredson's Intrigo: Dear Agnes, direct from YouTube:

The first film already debuted in January, the final film (Samaria) will also be out soon. Intrigued?
To be honest, the idea that moves the story isn't something. The girls are nice, but anything else is kinda lame ...

my only issue with this is the premise: a guy is cheating on his wife? ok.....till i see the wife - asian hotness with a sexy british accent...........like he's going to find something better? LOL that aside, it looks interesting. i get the feeling the wife is trying to set the other woman up somehow.
