This year is shaping up to be a great year for action-packed foreign films. The Raid: Redemption is opening wider this weekend and now we have the US trailer for Frederic Jardin‘s Sleepless Night. The film is being described as a mix of Die Hard and 24, with a little Taken thrown into the mix.
I like the sound of that and the trailer is a lot of fun, despite the over-dramatic voiceover.
Sleepless Night will be hitting theaters on May 11th, after a VOD release on April 17th, 2012.
Check out the trailer below (via Apple) and let us know what you think!
Sleepless Night tells the story of Vincent, a respected and dedicated police officer – or so it seems. After he and a colleague are recognized while stealing a massive bag of cocaine from drug dealers employed by local mob boss Marciano, Vincent quickly finds himself trapped in a situation that no parent would envy: his son has been kidnapped with the promise of execution if he doesn’t immediately deliver the bag back to its rightful owner. Vincent heads to Marciano’s nightclub on the outskirts of Paris to make the swap, but competing interests and misplaced loyalties soon threaten to complicate the exchange. The ensuing game of cat-and-mouse quickly spirals into madness, sprawling across every seedy back room and pulsating, claustrophobic inch of the crowded dance floor. With enemies on all sides and time working against him, the night to come might not only be the longest but also the last of Vincent and his young son’s life.
