Mads Mikkelsen Takes Revenge In Trailer For ‘Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas’

Written by on January 3, 2014 

After grabbing the Best Actor award at Cannes Film Festival back in 2012 for The HuntMads Mikkelsen returned last year for the 16th-century tale Michael Kohlhaas. Directed by Arnaud des Pallieres, the revenge drama seemed to get a fairly tepid response and now it’s gearing up for a U.K. release with a new title. Now referred to as the clunky Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas, a new trailer has arrived today.

Adapted from Heinrich von Kleist’s classic novel, the story finds Mikkelsen in a feudal France working as a horse merchant who takes violent revenge when two of his horses get stolen. The obvious voiceover in the trailer is fairly off-putting, but considering the film also stars Bruno Ganz and Denis Lavant, it makes for a trio of actors we’ll watch do just about anything. Check it out below, along with the poster, for the film also starring Melusine Mayance and Delphine Chuillot.

Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas will be released this year in the U.S. by Music Box Films and hits U.K. theaters today.
