If you were ever hoping for a pairing between Jamie Lannister and the Red Witch Melisandre on “Game of Thrones,” look no further than the action thriller “Domino,” which stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Carice van Houten.
The “GoT” actors star alongside Guy Pearce in the new thriller from Brian De Palma, his first film in seven years since 2012’s “Passion.” “Domino” finds De Palma going back to the well of crime and conspiracy as he’s explored in films like “The Untouchables,” “Scarface” and “Mission: Impossible.” Petter Skavlan wrote the screenplay.
In the film, Coster-Waldau plays a Copenhagen police officer who seeks justice for his partner’s murder by an ISIS member named Imran. On the hunt for the killer, Christian and a fellow cop are unwittingly caught in a cat and mouse chase with a duplicitous CIA agent (Pearce) who is using Imran as a pawn to trap other ISIS members. Soon Christian is racing against the clock – not only seeking revenge, but to save his own life.
“I’ll get whoever did this,” Coster-Waldau says in the trailer after falling from a rooftop and allowing the terrorist attacker to escape. “I swear it.”
Saban Films is releasing “Domino” in theaters and on demand on May 31.
