Polar trailer: Mads Mikkelsen is forced back into the assassin game


You wait ages for one Mads Mikkelsen film and before you know it they are coming from every angle. Not that we are complaining as Mikkelsen remains one of the most watchable actors in cinema and TV today. After last week’s Arctic, he also stars in a new Netflix film called Polar, which is based on the popular noir webcomic series. The two films sound similar in name, but the only link is the ice cold blood running through the veins of this new character. A trailer for Polar has just dropped and you can check it out above right now.

The world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla, aka The Black Kaiser, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him silenced.

Jonas Akerlund directs, with Vanessa Hudgens, Katheryn Winnick and Matt Lucas in the supporting cast.

Polar can be seen on Netflix from January 25th.
