Jim Carrey may be best known as a comic actor, but much of his best work is actually found outside the comedy space. He even took a trip into the horror genre with 2007’s The Number 23, and most recently appeared in Ana Lily Amirpour’s The Bad Batch. He returns to the genre in Alexandros Avranas’ Dark Crimes, formerly titled True Crimes.
In the thriller, “Carrey plays a police officer named Tadek, who finds similarities between an unsolved murder and a crime outlined in a book by famed writer Krystov Kozlow (Marton Csokas). As Tadek begins to track Kozlow and his girlfriend, a mysterious sex club worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg), his obsession grows and he descends into an underworld of sex, lies, and corruption to find the shocking truth.”
EW just got their hands on the trailer, which you can check out below.
Dark Crimes first hits DIRECTV on April 19, followed by theaters/VOD on May 18.
