EASY MONEY Trailer: Joel Kinnaman Is A Tough Guy
It would appear to be trailer-park day down at the ol’ Double-C this afternoon, as we have yet another trailer for you to ingest, along with a ready-made smart-ass opinion for you with which to impress your friends. The 2010 Swedish crime-thriller Snabba Cash is hitting the English-speaking world right in its stupid mouth this July 11th, with the new title Easy Money and the cinematic blessing of our most eminent movie boss, Don Martin Scorsese. Dig:
Right, so, we’re all agreed that this Silence of the Madeas Alex Cross flick is gonna be super-lame, yes? And we can see clearly that Frank & Robot will be well worth our while, but it still will likely lean heavily over into at least some sweet sentimentalism, right? But I anticipate nothing of the sort from Easy Money, even if it is not a remake of the 1983 Rodney Dangerfield film.
For one thing, opening the trailer with “The Flower Duet” is always a solid choice. It’s a bit been-done at this point, I know, but I also know that I and many other of my fellow crime-heads simply love, love, love when classical music is combined with shots of guys counting fat stacks of cash and beating the hell outta other guys. I like to think of it as the Clockwork Orange effect (similar magic is at work in the best Warner Bros. cartoons). Then we get a nice mash-up of ol Lakmé with “Smooth Operetta” by Ian Livingstone, adding another wrinkle to the whole thing, blending the old with the new, which has been a prevalent theme in modern crime cinema since The Godfather, and shows no signs of relenting.
Also featured heavily is star Joel Kinnaman, who’s been making such a name for himself over on AMC’s The Killing and who will soon be reviled by a lot of guys I know for starring in the forthcoming RoboCop remake. Both crowds ought to particularly enjoy Easy Money as the former will like seeing more of Kinnaman’s work in his homeland and the latter will want to pre-wash the taste of that remake out of their mouths.
That’s a lot packed into a minute-and-a-half trailer, but I am very optimistic the film will rise to that level. Scorsese wouldn’t put his name on something that was less than worth our time (not counting the ending of Gangs of New York).
