“Hannibal” actor Mads Mikkelsen sets aside the knives and other murderous hand to hand paraphernalia as he becomes the vengeful marksman opposing The CW “Supernatural’s” alum Jeffrey Dean Morgan in IFC Film’s “The Salvation.” Read on to know more about the details of this preview.
Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen got the spotlight set on his course ever since he landed the eponymous role of Hannibal Lecter for NBC’s mystery, thriller series “Hannibal,” and his schedule has long been hectic because of it. Now that the series is about to unfold for its third season, fans of the show could not expect that Mikkelsen would be able to find time to star in an Old West–esque film alongside Eva Green and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He stars in IFC Film’s “The Salvation,” and the hunter becomes the one being hunted.
According to Movie Web, “The Salvation” is directed by “The Intended” helmsman Kristian Levring, and it packs the good old story of Western revenge. Mikkelsen’s character, Jon, sets out to deliver his plan of retribution in hunting down the people who killed his wife and his son. After sentencing the men who have done him wrong to death, he becomes the person who ignites another revenge path for sadistic gang leader Delarue, played by Morgan. As it turns out, one of the scoundrels killed by Jon is the brother of Delarue. The hunter then becomes the hunted in a domino effect act of revenge.
Checking out the trailer, the sense of darkness is obviously applied in the film’s mise-en-scène. Emotions are highly glorified and so are some noticeable visual effects. With the direct impact of powdered ammunition, dramatic landscapes and compelling acting by Mads Mikkelsen, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Eva Green, “The Salvation” is a movie that has the potential to bring back the once forgotten genre of the Old West.
“The Salvation” is slated to open in selected US theaters on Feb. 27, 2015.
That concludes our preview of Mads Mikkelsen’s Old Western action movie, “The Salvation.” Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more information on upcoming films, popular celebrities and ongoing TV shows.
