If the four-quadrant studio offerings of the summer aren’t up your alley, shlock master Brian De Palma is here to heat things up. After a fall festival debut, this season will bring his erotic thriller Passion to theaters and VOD. Featuring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace caught in a game of lust and corporate competition, we’ve got a new U.S. trailer for the film.
Like the majority of viewers, we were negative after its Toronto International Film Festival premiere, but as with any De Palma film, it could certainly click with admirers of the auteur. As a fan of his over-the-top style, this new look seems right up my alley, so check out the new trailer below ahead of an August release.
Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed To Kill with an erotic corporate thriller fueled by sex, ambition, image, envy and the dark, murderous side of PASSION. The film stars Rachel McAdams (Midnight In Paris, Sherlock Holmes, Mean Girls) and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as two rising female executives in a multinational corporation whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cut-throat.
Passion hits VOD on August 1st and theaters on August 30th.
