Ah, Viggo, it’s been far too long. How long since we ogled your chiseled jaw, your piercing eyes, your (white, it should always be white) besuited frame? With the death of Eastern Promises 2 we require a new fantasy outlet; finally it arrives, in the form of this cool adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s (Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley) thriller.
Co-starring Oscar Isaac and Kristen Dunst, The Two Faces of January finds wealthy American couple Chester and Colette MacFarland (Mortensen and Dunst) touring Athens. It is there they encounter a less than honorable tour guide (Isaac), who they lure in…and somehow convince to help them cover up a crime. All I can say is, bring on bad Viggo (he’s got to be bad, right?) Here are the clips and some gorgeous photos:
The Two Faces of January is the directorial debut of Academy Award nominated writer Hossein Amini (Drive, 47 Ronin, Snow White and the Huntsman, The Wings of the Dove), who also wrote the screenplay. The film premieres May 16th (UK).
