Watch: 'The Artist' Star Jean Dujardin Steps Into The World Of Crime In NSFW Red Band Trailer For 'The Connection'

He charmed everyone with his vintage movie star charisma in “The Artist,” but Jean Dujardin shows a much grittier side in the French crime flick, “The Connection.” After hitting some festivals last fall and opening abroad, the movie is now headed stateside, and a NSFW, red-band trailer is here to get you thoroughly amped.

Cédric Jimenez directs the movie, which co-stars Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette, and Benoît Magimel, and is inspired by the same events that William Friedkin tackled in “The French Connection,” only from the European side of the equation. It all looks pretty slick and accomplished, though our review said it “feels at best like a cover version of the classic American crime films of the 1970s.” But maybe that’s the kind of cinematic song you’ll want to hear again.

“The Connection” opens on May 15th. Watch below. [ComingSoon]
