Set in a seedy motel, the film centers on John Cusack’s character, a criminal hired by Robert DeNiro’s character to retrieve a mysterious bag.
At just a minute and thirty seconds, the trailer features a montage of fight scenes rather than a narrative recount of the film. As if the femme fatale stripper character played by Rebecca Da Costa wasn’t enough of a clue, a voiceover provided by DeNiro’s character makes for an eerie aural backdrop that demonstrates the film’s clear noir aspirations.
“Y’know something I don’t like surprises,” says DeNiro’s character. “I mean don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the unexpected. But I don’t like surprises.”
