Vincent Cassel’s ‘Mesrine: Killer Instinct’ releases official trailer
HollywoodNews.com: Vincent Cassel’s latest film, “Mesrine: Killer Instinct,” has just released the official trailer for the film.
Across Canada, the United States and Spain, through France and Algeria, “Mesrine: Killer Instinct” tells the story of the incredible rise of one of history’s greatest gangsters. Always on the run, a renegade existence only a bullet can stop.
“Mesrine: Killer Instinct” – the first of two parts – charts the outlaw odyssey of Jacques Mesrine (Vincent Cassel), the legendary French gangster of the 1960s and 1970s who came to be known as French Public Enemy No. 1 and The Man of a Thousand Faces. Infamous for his bravado and outrageously daring prison escapes, Mesrine carried out numerous robberies, kidnappings and murders in a criminal career that spanned continents until he was shot dead in 1979 by France’s notorious anti-gang unit. Thirty years after his death, his infamy lives on.
Mesrine was helped along the way by beautiful and equally reckless Jeanne Schneider (Cécile de France), a Bonnie to match his Clyde. Mesrine made up his own epic, between romanticism and cruelty, flamboyance and tragedy. Both a thriller and a biopic, Mesrine: Killer Instinct explores the man behind the icon.
