‘The Two Faces of January’ Trailer and Poster: Oscar Isaac Is in Too Deep
Watch what happens when the screenwriter behind ‘Drive’ is put in, well, the driver’s seat in the ‘Two Faces of January’ trailer. The film — which stars Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac, and is screening at the Berlin Film Festival — debuted the first footage and poster for the directorial debut of Hossein Amini, and you can see them both right here.
Empire released the ‘Two Faces of January’ trailer online, revealing a story about a con man (Mortensen) and his wife (Dunst) who stumble upon a Greek-speaking American tour guide (Isaac) in Athens, one who has been scamming tourists. The three join forces and attempt to flee the country after a cop winds up dead, though an unceremonious romance between the guide and the con man’s wife seems inevitable.
Some of Amini’s other credits include working on screenplays for ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ ‘47 Ronin‘ and ‘The Wings of a Dove,’ but he’s also joined by, as the new poster runs down, some ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’ producers. Not only that, but who can resist the charms of Aragorn himself? And after seeing Isaac’s scene-stealing turn in the Coen brothers’ latest, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis,’ we can’t wait to see him bedeck the casts of future films.
‘The Two Faces of January’ will make its debut in the UK on May 16, though no US release has been determined yet.
