Check out the trailer for this tense thriller
Passion is set for its U.S release, and in light of that, a new trailer has been released, showing the thrilling battle between Noomi Rapace and Rachal McAdams in a sometimes horrifying trailer. Check it out:
'Passion' is a remake of the French film 'Love Crime' (originally 'Crime d'amour') written by Natalie Carter and Alain Corneau. It has been adapted by award-winning director and writer Brian De Palma ('Carrie', 'The Untouchables', 'Scarface'). The story of white-collar rivalry, money and power, 'Passion' is set to hit cinemas on August 30th 2013.
Don't worry, McAdams is just filming a scene - it's her job!
Themes of lesbianism are combined with forthright violence, manipulation and deceit – classic ingredients for the most thrilling of thrillers – perhaps minus the lesbianism bit, we’ve seen thrillers without homosexuality before.

U.S viewers get the benefit of reviews to help them out, as the British press have had their hands on this one for a while. And although an initial search for reviews might yield disappointing results, the good reviews are in fact there. “Passion is a serpentine, gorgeously orchestrated gathering of all of De Palma's pet themes and conceits,” say Slant Magazine. An overall rating of 25% on Rotten Tomatoes might put some people off – and that’s fair enough – but U.S audiences can certainly find something to live in this engaging thriller.
