Earlier this year, we saw Steven Soderbergh revitalize the aging erotic thriller genre with "Side Effects," a pretty nifty and pulpy take on the kinds of poitboilers we don't really get much of anymore. Or don't we? In just a couple of months you'll be able to undo the top few buttons of your shirt, metaphorically or literally, when Brian De Palma's "Passion" arrives, and a new trailer is here to take you into the film's sexy and murderous dance.

Earlier this year, we saw Steven Soderbergh revitalize the aging erotic thriller genre with "Side Effects," a pretty nifty and pulpy take on the kinds of poitboilers we don't really get much of anymore. Or don't we? In just a couple of months you'll be able to undo the top few buttons of your shirt, metaphorically or literally, when Brian De Palma's "Passion" arrives, and a new trailer is here to take you into the film's sexy and murderous dance.

Starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, the story follows the friendly, trusting and sometimes flirty relationship between boss/employee that takes a turn for the lurid when their personal affairs and corporate ladder climbing clash. It's very much a b-movie, but whether or not it works...that depends on who you ask. Critics were a bit split on this one when it ran through the fall festival circuit last year, but these two actresses playing against type should be worth a watch anyway.

"Passion" goes VOD on August 1st and arrives in theaters on August 30th. Watch below. [Noomi Rapace Online]
