Trailer for lesbian Rachel McAdams thriller released
25 August 2012

A trailer for Passion, a lesbian thriller starring Hollywood starlets Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, has just been released.

It follows a power struggle between the two women, Isabelle, played by Rapace famous for starring in Prometheus, and Christine, played by McAdams, known for films such as The Vow and Mean Girls.

A remake of the French erotic thriller Love Crime, the women start off as competitive work colleagues but their relationship soon descends into a game of seduction and manipulation.

The trailer is likely to get tongues wagging as it shows off the steamy scenes between the two actresses.

It ends with a black screen showing the title of the film, while in the background Rapace can be heard saying ‘Come here. Come closer. Now kiss me, I love you.’

Directed by Brian De Palma, whose filmography includes the 1976 Stephen King adaptation Carrie and the 2006 neo noir film The Black Dahlia.

A French-German film, it has also already been selected to compete for the highest prize at the 69th Venice International Film Festival.
