Watch The Red Band Trailer For Dark Norwegian Crime Comedy JACKPOT

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Hugely popular Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbo (Headhunters) takes his first stab at an original screenplay with Jackpot, a darkly humorous effort from director Magnus Martens that pits four friends against one another when they strike it rich. And with the film hitting US theaters and VOD on June 27th we've got a look at the red band trailer.

Based on a story by Norway's leading crime novelist Jo Nesbø, Jackpot is a Coen Brothers-inspired take on homicidal greed and betrayal, Scandinavian-style.  When Christmas tree factory supervisor Oscar Svendsen wakes up terrified and bloody in a strip joint, with a shotgun in his hand and eight corpses surrounding him, he's clearly going to have a lot of explaining to do.  Under the intense interrogation of hard-boiled detective Solør, Oscar begins piecing together the unbelievable story of how he won the top prize in a soccer pool with his 3 dangerous ex-con colleagues.  With a pile of cash at stake, the trio enters into a vicious battle over how to divide the money, dragging unwitting Oscar along for the violent ride.  This rollicking gory romp racks up an impressive body count -- and will keep you guessing until the very end.

Take a look at the trailer below!
