Anthony Hopkins Gets Taken In The Trailer For KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN

I'm trying to make a Pabst Blue Ribbon joke but failing.

In 1983, a small-time gang of Dutch crooks led by Willem Holleeder pulled off a foolhardy abduction of Heineken beer tycoon Freddy Heineken. Well, they sort of pulled it off. They got their money (35 million guilders, about $20 million), and then everything went to hell. 

Now Daniel Alfredson, director of two of the three cool Swedish adaptations of Stieg Larsson's Girl trilogy, as well as the related Millennium series, is directing Kidnapping Mr.  Heineken from the out-of-print book by Peter R. de Vries. Anthony Hopkins is our beer magnate, and Sam Worthington plays Holleeder, with Jim Sturgess, Ryan Kwanten, Mark van Eeuwen and Thomas Cocquerel joining his gang. 

I'm into it! I like this story. I appreciate that all the character names are accurate. The trailer's fairly exciting. This poster, though.
