First full trailer for Dead Man Down released: watch now

The first full trailer for psychological thriller Dead Man Down has been released online, and promises a glut of action spills.

Directed by Niels Arden Oplev, it sees the Danish filmmaker reunite with his Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace.

She hires Colin Farell’s professional killer to take out Terrence Howard, a man who once violently maimed her.

Check out the trailer below…

Filled with slow-mo action shots and what looks like a deliciously oily turn from Howard, Oplev’s first English-language film doesn’t seem to be breaking any thriller moulds.

It does look to be a fairly straightforward – and solid – revenge thriller, though, with Rapace and Farell on top form.

Only time will tell if it’s able to match The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for gritty kicks.

Dead Man Down opens in the US on 8 March 2013. It has yet to receive a UK release date.
