Tense trailer for thriller The Two Faces of January with Viggo Mortensen

Writer Hossein Amini (DRIVE, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN) is making his directorial debut with THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY, an adaptation of the novel by Patricia Highsmith, who is best known for her books STRANGERS ON A TRAIN and THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY. The thriller stars Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, and Oscar Isaac as three people intwined in a murder/conspiracy who end up on the run from authorities. The first trailer for the film presents a mysterious and suspenseful vibe and looks like it could be a lot of fun, even if it's a somewhat warmed over tale.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

A thriller centered on a con artist, his wife, and a stranger who try to flee a foreign country after one of them is caught up in the murder of a police officer.

I'll watch pretty much anything with Mortensen and Oscar Isaac is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with. I think it's just a matter of time before he makes the leap into bigger roles, especially after last year's INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS. All said, THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY has got potential to be a sleeper hit and certainly looks like a well-shot flick. We'll see.

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY is set for release in the UK on May 16, 2014. A U.S. debut has yet to be announced.
