The next few weeks sees the release of not one but two films led by “Hannibal” and “Casino Royale” star Mads Mikkelsen who is stuck in an icy wilderness.
One is “Arctic,” a survivalist drama which gets a theatrical release in early February and released its first trailer a few days ago. The other is the crime thriller “Polar,” Netflix’s adaptation of the comic title of the same name which has also just released its first trailer.
Mikkelsen plays Duncan Vizla, aka The Black Kaiser, who is the world’s top assassin. He’s settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability. He soon finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him silenced.
“Polar” will debut worldwide on the streaming service on January 25th.
