A new featurette has been released for Niels Arden Oplev‘s action-thriller Dead Man Down. Colin Farrell stars as Victor, the right-hand-man for a New York crime lord (Terrence Howard) who seeks revenge against his boss following the death of his wife and daughter. When a victim (Noomi Rapace) blackmails Victor into getting some revenge of her own against the crime lord, the two get caught up in the fallout. Dead Man Down is the American debut of Opley, who previously directed the Swedish adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This featurette does a great job of introducing Oplev to people who haven’t seen his version of Dragon Tattoo, and I really like what I’m seeing from his new film, especially in terms of the visuals.
