U.S. Trailer, showtimes for Jo Nesbø’s HEADHUNTERS

Magnolia Pictures has released a U.S. trailer for Jo Nesbøs Hodejegerne (aka Jo Nesbø’s HEADHUNTERS), the acclaimed Norweigan film based on the novel of the same name.

HEADHUNTERS stars the talented Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) as Roger, a charming scoundrel and Norway’s most accomplished headhunter. Roger is living a life of luxury well beyond his means, and stealing art to subsidize his expensive lifestyle. When his beautiful gallery owner wife introduces him to a former mercenary in the possession of an extremely valuable painting, he decides to risk it all to get his hands on it, and in doing so discovers something which makes him a hunted man.
