 'MANHATTAN NIGHT' TRAILER
ADAM BRODY IN THE CLUTCHES OF YVONNE STRAHOVSKI
Coming soon to cinemas near you is suspense thriller  based on Colin Harrison's novel MANHATTAN NIGHT which tells the story of Porter Wren (Adrien Brody), a New York City tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy and anything that passes for the truth. At home he is a model family man, devoted to his loving wife (Jennifer Beals). But when a seductive stranger (Yvonne Strahovski) asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her filmmaker husband Simon (Campbell Scott), he can't resist. In this modern version of a classic film noir, we follow Porter as he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail - one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life. And a happy 43rd Birthday to Adrien Brody today!
