Joel Kinnaman Is Drawn Into Life of Crime in Easy Money Trailer
The Weinstein Company has released the oddly, but appealingly, otherworldly trailer for Easy Money (aka Snabba Cash), the 2010 Swedish crime thriller that put director Daniel Espinosa and star Joel Kinnaman on Hollywood’s radar. Espinosa went on to helm the action thriller Safe House (with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, and a minor part for Kinnaman), while his star landed on AMC’s The Killing and in the upcoming RoboCop remake.
An adaptation of the 2006 novel of the same name by Jens Lapidus, Easy Money stars a baby-faced Kinnaman as a poor man living a double life in the upper-class areas of Stockholm who, after meeting a wealthy girl, is drawn into the world of organized crime. Watch the trailer below or in HD at Apple.com. Easy Money arrives in U.S. theaters July 11.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), EASY MONEY is a Swedish crime thriller based on the international best-selling novel Snabba Cash by Jens Lapidus. Lower-class business student JW (Joel Kinnaman from AMC’s ‘The Killing’) falls in love with a sexy heiress while living a double life mingling with Stockholm’s wealthy elite. To keep up the facade of his lifestyle, he’s lured into a world of crime. Jorge is a petty fugitive on the run from both the police and Serbian mafia. He hopes that brokering a massive cocaine deal will allow him to escape for good. Mafia enforcer Mrado is on the hunt for Jorge, but his efforts are complicated when he’s unexpectedly saddled with caring for his young daughter. As JW’s journey ventures deeper into the dark world of organized crime, the fate of all three men becomes entangled and ends with a dramatic struggle for life and death.
