First Trailer for Brian De Palma’s PASSION Trailer Starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace

     August 23, 2012


The first trailer for Brian De Palma‘s erotic thriller Passion has gone online.  The film is a remake of Alain Corneau‘s Love Crime, and centers on the relationship between a woman (Rachel McAdams) and her innocent, lovely and easily exploited protégé (Noomi Rapace).  The film looks like what you’d expect from De Palma in this genre.  There’s creepy psychosexual imagery and serious tension between the female leads.  The film will be running the festival circuit through Venice, Toronto, and New York, and it’s one of my must-see movies at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.  This trailer only makes me more excited to see this flick, and also play catch-up on De Palma’s filmography, in particular Femme Fatale and Dressed to Kill.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.

Here’s the synopsis for Passion:

An erotic thriller in the tradition of Dressed To Kill and Basic Instinct, Brian de Palma’s Passion tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protégé, Isabelle, is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. They’re on the same team, after all… But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out.
