Season 2: Podcast 7

This week we review the Norwegian thriller / black comedy - Headhunters. An adaptation of Jo Nesbo's book this stars a cast of relative unknowns to UK audiences, although it does inlcude Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who appears in Game of Thrones. Julie Olgaard, the original Nanna Birk Larsen in the original The Killing (or Forbrydelsen if you like), also stars in a supporting role. The trailer is below (note the lack of speaking to try and trick those of you who are afraid of subtitles!):

In movie news we discuss Looper, the new film from Ryan Johnson and Joseph-Gordon Levitt (re-teaming again after Brick and The Brothers Bloom). This sci-fi has the crazy premise of JGL being sent to the future to terminate his future self (Bruce Willis - he must have had a tough paper route!). The full trailer isn't up yet but the first teaser trailer is below.

We also discuss the news that The Dark Knight Rises has a rating (PG-13 in the US) and the fact that with Marvel Avengers Assemble / Avengers / Avengers Assemble (whatever it is called now) is about to hit the screens at the end of the month, Captain America 2 now has a release date!

Finally, after this weeks review of Headhunters, which focuses on a burglar of fine art, we look at the top 5 movie heists. There was a lot to choose from here and some tough decisions were made, but do you agree with our final list? Click here to find out what it is and for everything else listed above.
