Sometimes you just have to give the internet what it wants. Currently it wants Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace to kiss in the trailer for Passion, so that’s exactly what happened. Power to the people? The first trailers for Passion started almost a year ago but it has developed very little hype from the festival circuit outside of Brian De Palma fans. That probably explains why the US trailer goes right for the jugular.
Passion is available on demand August 1st and in select theaters August 30th. Official synopsis, as if you care:
Brian De Palma (The Black Dahlia, The Untouchables, Scarface) returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of “Dressed To Kill” with an erotic corporate thriller fueled by sex, ambition, image, envy and the dark, murderous side of PASSION. The film stars Rachel McAdams (Midnight In Paris, Sherlock Holmes, Mean Girls) and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as two rising female executives in a multinational corporation whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cut-throat.
