It’s a Mads, Mads world. Netflix has released the trailer for its Mads Mikkelsen-Vanessa Hudgens movie “Polar,” and lots of people who lived by the gun are going to die by the gun.
In the action flick, the world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla — a.k.a. The Black Kaiser (Mikkelsen) — is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm, per the streaming service’s official description. Against his will, he 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.
Also, Vizla’s pending $8 million pension seems like a pretty good (company) reason to off the hard-to-off dude.
Directed by Jonas Akerlund, “Polar” is written by Jayson Rothwell and produced by Jeremy Bolt, Robert Kulzer and Hartley Gorenstein. In addition to Mikkelsen and Hudgens, Katheryn Winnick, Matt Lucas, Ruby O. Fee, Fei Ren, Anthony Grant, Josh Cruddas, Robert Maillet, Julian Richings, Johnny Knoxville and Richard Dreyfuss are also in the movie.
“Polar” is based on upon the Dark Horse graphic novel “Polar: Came from the Cold” by Victor Santos.

“Polar” debuts Jan. 25 on Netflix.
