Dead Man Down Has A Different Valentine Spin For You

On March 8th, American theaters are finally getting a taste of Niels Arden Oplev first-hand. Celebrated in the marketing for Dead Man Down as “the director of the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, there’s a bit more to it than that, even if he doesn’t quite have a massive CV behind him.

What he does have, and you’ll know if you caught that original, is a great style, and an impressive viewpoint when it comes to delivering action and emotion on the silver screen.

This time around we’re working on a script that jumbles our characters’ lives around, ultimately with something of a similar feel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Still, this is a movie that seems slightly hard to sell, but the trailer is impressive.

Putting all that aside for a moment, the film has an interesting take on Valentine’s Day it would like to share with you. Oh, that crazy, crazy love. Have anyone in mind for one of these?
