Once upon a time, Brian De Palma was one of the hottest directors in Hollywood thanks to films like "Scarface," "The Untouchables" and "Mission: Impossible." But then he seemed to cool off, spending the last decade making underwhelming ("Redacted") and underappreciated ("Black Dahlia") personal projects. The fire seemed to be gone.
Well, get ready, because the passion is back in a big way thanks to the new trailer for Brian De Palma's latest film — and once you see the steamy interplay between stars Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, you'll agree that "Passion" might just be too hot to handle.
Set to debut at this year's Venice Film Festival, "Passion" is a remake of the hit French thriller "Crime d'amour." McAdams plays a businesswoman who gets very, very up close and personal with her personal assistant (that's Rapace, naturally). But when she takes credit for an idea her underling actually came up with, their personal and professional relationships take a decided turn for the deadly.
Take a look at the trailer, courtesy of TIFF, but make sure you're watching it on a waterproof screen. Because you're really going to need a cold shower by the time this one is done.
