One of the highlights of this weekend's Nordicana Festival in London - celebrating all things dramatic and Scandinavian - was the first UK screening of 'Easy Money'.
This is the latest big screen offering of Nordic Noir, with no less a champion than exec producer Martin Scorsese, andHuffPostUK is pleased to host the exclusive trailer - Watch Above.
Here's the official poster, too - look familiar?
This Nordic relation to Scorsese's own masterpiece 'Goodfellas' tells the tale of Jw (Joel Kinnaman - The Killing, Safe House), a poor student living a double life among the wealthy elite in Stockholm. Using increasingly illicit means to fund his exclusive lifestyle, he hits on a chance to score ‘easy money’ through selling cocaine. As Jw enters the dark world of organised crime, his fate entwines with that of Jorge (Matias Padin Varela), a drug dealer on the run, and »

Before he became RoboCop it was Swedish crime film Snabba Cash (Easy Money) that launched Joel Kinnaman to stardom. Immediately snapped up by The Weinstein Company and prepped for Us remake - reportedly with Zac Efron taking on the Kinnaman role - it took rather a long time for the first Snabba Cash to hit Us release but the balance that film strikes between action and riveting character work remains impressive today. The first Snabba Cash also happened to earn a great big bag of money throughout Europe which has meant - of course - sequels. Based on a trilogy of novels by Jens Lapidus, a second film followed quickly after the first and now a third - titled Life Deluxe - is about to...

★★★☆☆ It's not often that you see a new UK theatrical release that's already had a sequel made and circulated in its native country. Knowing that this is part one does cause concern that it will have an open-ended finale, but it's also encouraging to know that this initial offering was evidently good enough to have earned a second bite of the cherry. As such, Daniel Espinosa's Easy Money (Snabba cash, 2010) doesn't disappoint. Joel Kinnaman plays Johan Westlund, a charismatic young student who leads a double life, convincing his bourgeois friends that he is from a privileged background, attracting the interest of the beautiful Sophie (Lisa Henni).
In order to help fund his lie and his new way of life, Westlund becomes a drug runner for fugitive Jorge (Matias Varela), who is on the run from both the police and the Serbian mafia, led by the brutal Mrado (Dragomir Mrsic »

AMC's "The Killing" returned to solid numbers for its Season 3 premiere, as the lure of a fresh start proved greater than answering the mystery of who killed Rosie Larsen.
Last night's two-hour season premiere drew 1.8 million viewers, a nice jump from the 1.45 million viewers who tuned in for the Season 2 finale (which finally resolved two seasons worth of the Rosie Larsen murder investigation).
The Season 3 premiere audience was even with the Season 2 premiere, demonstrating once again that there's a core fan base for this series frequently dismissed by critics as tedious and pretentious.
However, a significant portion of that audience is outside of AMC's target demos: "The Killing" averaged just 671,000 adults 25-54 and 563,000 adults 18-49.
The show's third season follows an all new investigation and welcomes new cast members Elias Koteas, Amy Seimetz and Peter Sarsgaard alongside returning stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman. AMC ordered 12 episodes for Season 3, with »
The Killing, Season 3: Episodes 1 & 2 – “The Jungle” and “That You Fear the Most”
Airs Sunday nights at 9 on AMC
Even the reviews that have been cautiously optimistic of the The Killing‘s third season have been quick to recall all the issues that plagued the first two seasons. Some of those issues include, but are not limited to: the over-reliance of red herrings, the weakness of the political storyline, the pretension of the show to think of itself as anything more than a glorified procedural and the fact that the crime being investigated wasn’t solved at the end of the first season. I have some issues…regarding these issues.

Back from the dead, The Killing’s Season 3 debut last night matched its Season 2 opener. The cancelled and then resurrected AMC crime drama garnered 1.8 million viewers and a 1.4 household rating in its two-hour season premiere Sunday — just like it did on April 1, 2012. That result is down from the 2.7 million who tuned in for the series’ debut on April 3, 2011, which remains the show’s all-time viewership high. However, Sunday’s premiere was up 27% in its rating from the Season 2 finale on June 17, 2012, and was also up 21% in viewers from the Season 2 finale. The latest season, which stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman along with new cast members Peter Sarsgaard, Elias Koteas and Amy Seimetz, focuses on a new case, which will be resolved over the course of 10 episodes, culminating in a two-hour finale. »

After first canceling it and then deciding to give it another shot, AMC brought back "The Killing" Sunday night (June 2). But even with a new case and several new characters, it felt like much the same show that has frustrated more than a few viewers the past two years.
One area where it's immediately clear Season 3 could be an upgrade is the presence of Peter Sarsgaard as a death row inmate who's both a story engine -- he's the reason Linden (Mireille Enos), who has left her old job behind, will be rejoining Holder (Joel Kinnaman) on a case -- and a tremendously creepy presence regardless of who's on screen with him. His understated acting also fits well with the show's slow-burn style.
But as with the first two seasons, things in Sunday's two-hour premiere move ever so slowly. The show has to spend a lot of time introducing all the new players, »
Whether you wanted it or not, The Killing is back for its third season.
While I was never as overly angry about the series dragging out the Rosie Larsen case for two seasons (although it did seem like an odd choice given that it was highly implied it would be solved after The Killing Season 1), the actual closure of it in the season two finale, "What I Know," worked and was a positive way to finally solve the mystery.
But was it too little too late? AMC must have felt so because the show suffered the same fate as its title and was cancelled not soon after.
Then, surprisingly, when it seemed the series had been laid to rest for good, it was suddenly revived, revamped and essentially rebooted.
And if the season premiere, "The Jungle; That You Fear the Most," is any indication of what's to come, then bringing »

[Warning: Spoilers from the season premiere from The Killing.] The Killing returned Sunday with a new case, but this time it's not one victim -- it's several. It's clear from the onset that the revived AMC drama, which has had a rollercoaster two seasons, is starting anew. The only returning characters from the first two seasons are Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Detective Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman), with a brand new cast of supporting players, including the menacing former cop turned death-row inmate Ray Seward (Peter Sarsgaard). Since walking away from detective work, Linden has spent her year moving

Chicago – There are times when the third season premiere of AMC’s “The Killing” shows the signs of a program that was resurrected from the dead. The series was axed by AMC after a controversial end to the first season and disappointing second one. After working out terms with Netflix that would allow them exclusive access to the program if AMC brought it back, “The Killing” survived its near-death TV experience. But is it just the walking dead or has it been given new life? The truth is somewhere in between.
Television Rating: 3.5/5.0
As mentioned, one can sense a bit of trepidation on the part of showrunner Veena Sud with the two-part season premiere. It’s not as if she’s turned her show into a cookie-cutter mystery series but the confidence of that season one series premiere does seem replaced by something more familiar. There’s still a nice »

Who killed Kallie Leeds? That's the question in the upcoming season of "The Killing."
"This season is about whether seemingly irredeemable people can be redeemed. Can a guy like [convicted wife killer] Seward, who's done horrible things, find redemption? Can the deeply selfish Danette [Kallie's mother] transform into something better?"
As for Sarah and Holder (Joel Kinnaman), their relationship is going strong despite Sarah's new boyfriend and Holder's new partner.
"Sarah and Holder have a wonderful relationship, and the way they support each other runs very deep," Enos explained to TV Guide.
As for Peter Sarsgaard, who plays death-row inmate Ray Seward, he couldn't be more excited to be involved in Season 3 of the revived drama.
"I think it’s going to be very emotionally gripping, »

If atmosphere were substance, The Killing would be the greatest show on TV. When I think back on the two-hour premiere of the show's third season (AMC, June 2, 9 p.m.), what comes to mind are images and sounds: former detective Sarah Linden (Mirielle Enos) silhouetted in the doorway of the office belonging to her former partner Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman), Holder scrunched into the lower right-hand corner of the frame, slouched in a rolling office chair, grinning; Holder questioning a possible witness to a street girl's savage murder, his face shrouded in gray shadow; another street kid, the underage Kallie Leeds (Cate Sproule), seated on the bed of a john she went home with, reflected in a mirror that's cracked in a mosaic pattern; the rivulets of rain coursing down windowpanes, a key motif in this perpetually dark, wet show. The sound of the rain: whispery, insistent. And the »

"The Killing" returns for Season 3 this Sunday (June 2) night on AMC, which means Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are back as Detectives Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder. Except, Linden isn't actually a detective when the new season picks up.
After the prolonged investigation into Rosie Larsen's murder left Linden battered and broken, she's moved on to a quieter life. But Holder knows he needs his former partner's help when he encounters a gruesome series of murders that echo a crucial case from Linden's past, as seen in the following exclusive clip:
Any bets on how long it takes Linden to get back into the investigation game?
Enos and Kinnaman are the only returning cast members for the new season but they're joined by an impressive line-up of newcomers including Elias Koteas, Amy Seimetz and Peter Sarsgaard as a mysterious inmate on death row.

The third season of "The Killing" premieres on AMC this Sunday, June 2nd, starting up a year after the end of the Rosie Larsen case that took up all of season one and then, to the exasperation of some, all of season two as well. The show will be focusing on a new case (that will be solved, the network has promised, by the season finale), one involving a serial killer whose work brings Holder (Joel Kinnaman) and Linden (Mireille Enos) back together. The two sneak peeks released by AMC, below, offer a glimpse of that reunion and another that's apparently from the killer's point-of-view, assuring us that Seattle is still rainy and serial murders still like vulnerable streetwalkers.

Warner Bros. Man from U.N.C.L.E. has Man of Steel Henry Cavill in talks to replace Tom Cruise in the film adaptation of the TV series of the 60s, reports Variety. Guy Ritchie directs the film which also stars Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander. John Davis produces alongside Lionel Wigram and Ritchie. Man from U.N.C.L.E. ran from 1964-1968 and told of two top agents of the United Network Command for Law Enforcement - Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughan) and Soviet agent Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) fighting enemies of peace, in particular those of Thrush. Man from U.N.C.L.E. seems to be an ongoing struggle to find its way to the big screen. In 2011, Steven Soderbergh aimed to land George Clooney as star, but he passed. Later we had Channing Tatum being considered, as well as Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling, Joel Kinnaman and Michael Fassbender. »
Few series have demonstrated the unforgiving nature of the media and TV’s Web-connected super-fans better than “The Killing,” which drew them in with its hypnotic pace, then disappointed many with its misleading “We’ll wrap this up in season one” finale. The show limped through a second-season conclusion with considerably less fanfare, and now returns with a new mystery, feeling very much like yesterday’s news. As usual, the two-hour premiere closes with a flourish, but it’s a long slog to that point, with one compelling cast addition and plot threads that otherwise engage in a different type of killing – specifically, time.
Although there were several good business reasons to bring “The Killing” back — under a multi-pronged deal involving AMC, Netflix and Fox’s distribution apparatus — the artistic ones are considerably less obvious. Having told, for better or worse, a self-contained story, this almost can’t help but »
