Based on Jo Nesbø’s original 2008 bestselling novel, Headhunters definitely has the potential to be an engrossing action-crime-thriller next month. The last trailer we saw was excellent, and now we’ve got a new one to share with you that’s just as effective.
Coming from IMDb, this new look at the film has everything you want and expect from a film like this, with the heist, the upper class style, car crashes, bullets flying, a menacing dog, a beautiful wife, and a general all-round high-octane feel.
“HEADHUNTERS stars the talented Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) as Roger, a charming scoundrel and Norway’s most accomplished headhunter. Roger is living a life of luxury well beyond his means, and stealing art to subsidize his expensive lifestyle. When his beautiful gallery owner wife introduces him to a former mercenary in the possession of an extremely valuable painting, he decides to risk it all to get his hands on it, and in doing so discovers something which makes him a hunted man.”
Headhunters will be out in the UK on 6th April, before heading to the US a few weeks later on 27th April. I’ve already seen adverts for it up in my local cinema, so hopefully that’s a good sign that it won’t just be getting a limited run, because it looks quite promising.
