The next film worn by Jim Carrey, Dark Crimes, looks unsurprisingly very dark in his first trailer.

If his comic roles in Ace VenturaDumb and Dumber or Liar Liar stick to his skin, Jim Carrey is not just a comedy actor with grimaces. Films such as The Truman ShowThe Number 23 or  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind have already proven, but the one that is discussed today following the launch of its trailer should complete the drive: Dark Crimes.

A film based on a press article

In this Polish-American film directed by Alexandros Avranas ( Love Me Not ) originally named True Crimes and already broadcast in 2016 at the Warsaw Film Festival, it is about adapting a true story told in a 2008 article of the New Yorker.

Carrey plays Tadek, a police officer who finds similarities between the unsolved crime of a businessman and a crime described in a book written by author Krystov Koslow (played by Marton Csokas, recently seen in Into the Badlands ). During his investigation, our hero will cross the road of a mysterious sex worker in a club (incarnated by Charlotte Gainsbourg, The Promise of Dawn ) which will lead to a revelation and more lies, corruption and of sex.

 On the broadcasting side, Dark Crimes arrives at the cinema and on demand on May 11 across the Atlantic and it remains to be seen if there are plans for France. In the meantime, if you subscribed to Netflix you cannot recommend passing the documentary Jim and Andy who returns to the atypical filming of Man on the Moon.
