The actress reunites with director Niels Arden Oplev, who helmed the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie, which launched Rapace's career. She's since appeared in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and last year's Prometheus.
The first trailer for Dead Man Down seems rather vague. While we know Rapace is seeking revenge, Farrell is the unwilling participant in the quest and Terrence Howard appears as the main villain. There's lots of artsy shots mixed in there as well.
The official synopsis states "In New York City, a crime lord's right-hand man is seduced by one of his boss's victims, a woman seeking retribution."
We're sure to see more from this crime thriller in the coming months, but for now, check out the trailer (the clip starts off with a trailer teaser) and let us know what you think. Does this movie look good?
Dead Man Down arrives in theaters March 8.
