Mads Mikkelsen looks mean in upcoming revenge-laced black comedy/drama Riders Of Justice, set to release next month.
Fresh from the news that the mighty Mads Mikkelsen will be joining the cast of Indy 5, the trailer for his next film has arrived. Riders Of Justice is a revenge drama with darkly comic elements that sees Mikkelsen shave his head and look pretty tough, even by his standards. Frankly, we wouldn’t fancy bumping into him in a dark alley.
The synopsis for the film reads thus:
Mathilde loses her mother in a train accident and her father, Markus, a serving soldier in Afghanistan comes home to console his grieving daughter. Mathilde and Markus find it difficult to come to terms with the tragedy. However, Markus is approached by a man named Otto (who was on the same train with Markus’s wife) who informs him that the train accident wasn’t a coincidence but a planned murder to eliminate a key witness about to give evidence against the head of Riders of Justice motorbike gang. Markus pledges to avenge his wife and kill all those people linked to his wife’s murder.
Whist it all sounds pretty grim, there are some dark moments of comedy too, which is pretty much what you’d expect from a film by Anders Thomas Jensen, who also collaborated on the tonally-similar Men & Chicken in 2015.
Sadly, as is usual at the moment, no UK release date has yet been confirmed, whilst our friends in the US are getting the film in mid-May with a PVoD release following a week later. When we hear news of a UK release, we’ll let you know. In the meantime, check out the trailer below…
