[Sundance 2014] Full “KILLERS” Trailer: Bonded by MurderMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
World Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in just over a week, the new film from the Mo Brothers (Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel) looks to present a tale of two men brought together by violent impulse. While the film’s latest, full trailer isn’t as graphic as the strobing teaser we previously shined a light on, it’s no less enticing of what’s hopefully a thrilling, gruesome portrait of male competition… and a little bit of bromance.
In KILLERS, “Mr. Nomura is an eerily handsome, sharply dressed, sociopathic serial killer who preys on the women of Tokyo. In Jakarta, a world-weary journalist named Bayu finds himself unexpectedly falling into vigilantism after brutally killing two sadistic robbers. When each posts videos of his violent sprees online, the pair find one another on the Internet and begin a toxic and competitive duel. While Bayu clings to the hope that he can resume a normal life, Nomura continues to spill blood without remorse. Killing, advises Nomura, is something everyone ought to consider.”
KILLERS premieres January 20 in Park City, and I’ll be on hand for the experience. Keep an eye on FANGORIA for much more on Sundance and its genre slate throughout this month.
