New Images and First Poster from Brian De Palma’s PASSION, Starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace

     May 15, 2012


We shared the first image from director Brian De Palma’s erotic thriller Passion last week, and it was obvious from the “Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace kiss” photo that De Palma had something decidedly different up his sleeve.  Now a few new images and the first poster from the film have gone online, and the “erotic thriller” moniker definitely seems appropriate.  The story centers on the relationship between a woman and her “innocent, lovely and easily exploited” protégé.  It also apparently involves McAdams wearing a creepy as hell mask and wielding a knife.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Passion will be shopped at the Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off this week.

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… Christine takes pleasure in exercising control over the younger woman, leading her one step at a time ever deeper into a game of seduction and manipulation, dominance and humiliation. But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out. On the night of the murder, Isabelle is at the ballet, while Christine receives an invitation to seduction. From whom? Christine loves surprises. Naked she goes to meet the mystery lover waiting in her bedroom…
