About The Movie: Dead Man Down is a powerful action thriller and portrait of two people caught in the cross-hairs of revenge. Colin Farrell (Total Recall, In Bruges) plays Victor, the right hand man to an underground crime lord in New York City. In his quest for retribution, Victor’s life intertwines with Beatrice played by Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes 2), a victim seeking justice. The couple’s intense chemistry leads them into seduction, blackmail and a spiral of payback, bringing them closer together than either expected. Director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) reunites with Noomi Rapace to produce the same chemistry that made The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo one of the most successful films in Scandinavian history and garnering fans worldwide. Writer: J. H. Wyman Cast: Colin Farell, Noomi Rapace, Dominic Cooper, Terrence Howard

Momentum is building to restore and repurpose this national symbol of American power and innovation, led by the ship’s owners, the SS United States Conservancy.

With egos like those, THEY’RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT. Oh no, wait: That boat is huge. They’ll be fine.
