Now that writer-director Hossein Amini’s The Two Faces of January has a U.S. release date, albeit a limited theatrical one, a new domestic trailer for the noir thriller has debuted.  Amini adapted the Patricia Highsmith novel that follows a charismatic American couple (Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst) who encounter Rydal, a young Greek-speaking American (Oscar Isaac) while touring the Acropolis.  This relationship triangle grows ever more complicated as the couple’s dark history is revealed, along with Rydal’s true intentions.

The first trailer for the film did a great job at establishing dramatic tension, and this domestic cut is equal to the task, though it achieves the same result through a different angle.  You’ll be able to check it out for yourself on VOD starting August 28th, or in its limited theatrical release on September 26th.  Hit the jump to watch the U.S. trailer for The Two Faces of January.

The first clip and new images from The Two Faces of January have gone online.  The movie centers on an American con artist (Viggo Mortensen) and his wife (Kirsten Dunst) who strike up a relationship with a stranger (Oscar Isaac) in 1960s Athens.  In the clip, we see Isaac’s character giving a brief tour and talking about the tale of Theseus while Mortensen and Dunst’s characters discuss the Parthenon’s architecture.  However, these mundane conversations provide a nice, subtle nod at the deception and oversights that likely lay ahead.

The thriller The Two Faces of January, the directorial debut of Drive screenwriter Hossein Amini, is set to premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, and the first trailer and poster have now gone online.  The movie centers on an American con artist (Viggo Mortensen) and his wife (Kirsten Dunst) who strike up a relationship with a stranger (Oscar Isaac) in 1960s Athens.  The trailer makes the film look exciting and puts an emphasis on the interesting dynamic between the three characters, especially the one between Mortensen and Isaac.  Also, it wasn’t until I watched this trailer that I realized there wasn’t a new movie featuring Mortensen last year.  That’s simply unacceptable.

Viggo Mortensen to Star in THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY, the Directorial Debut of Hossein Amini

Viggo Mortensen passed on Snow White and the Huntsman right around the time Hossein Amini entered negotiations to rewrite the script.  I suspect their paths crossed, as in the months since, Amini and Mortensen teamed to develop an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s The Two Faces of January.  The 1964 novel is a suspense thriller that centers on an American con artist, his wife, and a stranger in travelling in Athens.  A source tells 24 Frames Mortensen would assume one of the three starring roles, and this is intended to be the directorial debut of Amini.

Amini wields a powerful calling card right now with Drive — by all accounts from Cannes and LAFF, Drive is amazing.  We peons only have to wait three months for the September 16 theatrical release.  Cronenberg will next be seen playing Sigmund Freud in David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, assuming it gets the late 2011 release we expect.  The first trailer, released yesterday, is wonderfully deranged.
