Colin Farrell spent a fair amount of time on the streets of the Lower East Side last summer, filming scenes for the upcoming movie Dead Man Down. Six months later, it’s a wrap.

The trailer hit YouTube last week, providing a blink-and-it’s-gone glimpse of the neighborhood landscape chosen for the final edit. Most notably, it appears that Farrell’s character lives in the Seward Park Co-ops. A cover of Floyd’s “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” provides the accompanying soundtrack.

In the film, Colin Farrell plays Victor, a “professional killer and the right-hand man to an underground crime lord in New York City who’s seduced and blackmailed by Beatrice (Noomi Rapace), a crime victim seeking retribution.” However, as one reader (and film buff) comically points out, the movie is:

One of the most generic and boring looking thrillers possible.  They might as well change the name to “An Action Thriller,” it should be part of a new trend of the most unimaginative film titles possible started of course by the upcoming “Gangster Squad.”

Dead Man Down is directed by Niels Arden Oplev (Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), and arrives in theaters March 8.
