Before David Fincher told the story of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” with Rooney Mara, a Danish television production led by director Niels Arden Oplev and star Noomi Rapace told the whole story of Lisbeth Salander. Now Oplev is bringing his talents stateside, and he’s taking his leading lady with him.
“Dead Man Down,” a new revenge thriller starring Rapace and Colin Farrell, debuted its first trailer last week, but today, we have your exclusive first look at a poster from the upcoming movie.

In “Dead Man Down,” Farrell plays Victor, a man who works for a violent crime boss in New York City (Terrence Howard). When a mysterious woman contacts him and then blackmails him, Victor must take him down with every ounce of fire power he’s got.
If you’re familiar with the original “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” or the two follow-ups, you should be able to recognize Oplev’s dark style, which Rapace fits right in with.
“Dead Man Down” opens on March 8, 2013.
