DARK CRIMES trailer – Jim Carrey goes dark and ditches the comedy for this murder mystery

Jim Carrey is back, but not the way you’re used to seeing him. With a shaved head and thick beard, Carrey stars in the murder mystery DARK CRIMES, which is based on the 2008 article “True Crimes – A Postmodern Murder Mystery” by David Grann, which tells the tale of a real life murder. This film looks like THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO a bit, definitely different than Jim’s typical material, unless you count THE NUMBER 23. Martin Csokas and Charlote Gainsbourgh co-star in this DirecTV movie, which hits this April. Check out the trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

A murder investigation of a slain business man turns to clues found in an author’s book about an eerily similar crime. Based on the 2008 article “True Crimes – A postmodern murder mystery” by David Grann.

DARK CRIMES debuts on DirecTV starting April 19, and has a limited theatrical & VOD run on May 11, 2018
