A few days ago, we brought you a first look at Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace getting all hot and bothered in Brian de Palma’s erotic thriller Passion. Well, these new images (De Palma A La Mod via The Playlist) will give an even better (or shall we say steamier?) idea of what’s in store.
As you can see from the pictures below, De Palma might well be rounding back into form with this sexy thriller while McAdams and Rapace look to be stretching out off their comfort zone. Read the official synopsis below:
An erotic thriller in the tradition of “Dressed To Kill” and “Basic Instinct”, Brian de Palma’s PASSION tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protégé Isabelle is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. They’re on the same team, after all… Christine takes pleasure in exercising control over the younger woman, leading her one step at a time ever deeper into a game of seduction and manipulation, dominance and humiliation. But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out. On the night of the murder, Isabelle is at the ballet, while Christine receives an invitation to seduction. From whom? Christine loves surprises. Naked she goes to meet the mystery lover waiting in her bedroom…
This sounds more than intriguing enough for me. And if you need more convincing, just take a look at McAdams wearing some creepy mask while she is about to slice someone open with a knife.
