'Dead Man Down' Trailer: 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' Director and Star Re-Team, Add Colin Farrell


Murder! Vengeance! Colin Farrell's usual worried glares! All here in this trailer for Dead Man Down, the English-language debut of original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev. The film re-teams him with star Noomi Rapace, who plays a woman scarred with a sort of Mike Tyson face tattoo and out for vengeance against the apparent perpetrator, Terrence Howard. She gets her shot at said vengeance when she records a contract killer (Farrell) doing a murder, then blackmails him to pull her own job. Unfortunately for them, quietly eliminating Terrence Howard is not as easy as the Iron Man franchise made it seem, and an all-out war breaks out, leading to explosions, a Pink Floyd cover act, and a guy getting eaten by rats. So it goes sometimes.

Sorry, Terrence Howard, but you can't clean her blood off your hands so simply as you can wash the poo off your butt with a baby wipe.
