The first trailer for Brian De Palma's erotic thriller Passion starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace has landed online in advance of its screening at the Toronto Film Festival. The film is a remake of the late Alain Corneau's French film Love Crime which starred the trio of Ludivine Sagnier, Kristin Scott Thomas and Patrick Mille.
De Palma's remake centers on the relationship between a woman (McAdams) and her innocent and easily manipulated protégé (Rapace).
The trailer features about what you would expect from a De Palma film, tone-wise and the tension between McAdams and Rapace is pretty serious. De Palma hasn't directed a movie since 2007's Redacted, though his last prominent film was 2006's The Black Dahlia.
In addition to screening at Toronto, the film will also screen at Venice and New York film festivals.
Currently there's no domestic release date, though the film will premiere in various European nations in February 2013. If buzz is good, expect the film to be released in late 2013 for an awards-season run.
