PREVIEW REVIEW: Martin Scorsese presents ‘Easy Money’ starring Joel Kinnaman (VIDEO)July 12th, 2012 | Posted by in Movies | Preview Review
Go see the Martin Scorsese endorsed euro action flick Easy Money before they remake the shit out of it with Zac Effron because then you won’t give a shit.
Starring soon-to-be RoboCop Joel Kinnaman of AMC’s The Killing and directed by Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa, the story has Kinnaman as a student of modest means trying to dazzle a rich heiress and gets embroiled in some drug dealing, some bad dudes, and develops a fondness for the lavish lifestyle that comes with.
Here’s the fun part; the film came out in Europe 2010 to rave reviews but never crossed the pond to U.S. theaters.
However, since Espinosa’s Safe House with Denzel, Ryan Reynolds and Kinnaman himself did gangbusters at the box office with a tidy $120 million earlier this year the brothers Weinstein of The Weinstein Company said, ‘Aye, that Espinosa’s Easy Money might make us some easy money so we should acquire it’… and so they did, and had Marty Scorsese sit down and watch it and then give his seal of approval… Presto! You have a potential action flick hit on your hands.
The movie rolls out this week and looks like it’s ready to kick ass with a scrubbed-clean and sexy Joel Kinnaman swooning all over the screen. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think.
