Mads Mikkelsen Fights The Cold Front In ‘Arctic’ Trailer

Mads Mikkelsen’s work in Casino Royale, the acclaimed feature The Hunt, and TV’s Hannibal has led him to A-list status, and that success only increased with 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now he’s back with Arctic, playing a man who must brave the elements for survival.

Running at 98 minutes, the picture isn’t the first feature about attempting to make it out through the cold after a plane crash (anyone remember The Mountain Between Us?), but Arctic has the makings of an excellent tale. For one, it’s directed by Joe Penna, a filmmaker who crafted his talents via short films and as “MysteryGuitarMan” via his YouTube Channel. Secondly, it’s headlined by Mikkelsen, an actor whose magnetic presence always increases a movie’s overall quality. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Arctic opens nationwide February 1.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’s’ Rami Malek: Why Queen’s Music Has Lasted

Bohemian Rhapsody traces the rise of British rock band Queen and tells the story about its flamboyant front man, Freddie Mercury. During its heyday with Mercury at the mic, the band recorded 15 albums and scored 12 Top 20 singles, including a couple — Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Another One Bites The Dust — that went all the way to Number 1. But it’s been 27 years since Mercury’s death, and nearly as long since the band’s last hit. So why do people still care enough about the band for people to want a movie? Rami Malek, who stars as Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, says it’s because the songs are timeless tunes that speak directly to people’s hearts and souls.

Bohemian Rhapsody is currently playing in theaters.
