It’s always interesting when a comedic actor takes on a dramatic role, and Jim Carrey’s are more interesting than most. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind is really good, for example, but The Number 23 is really bad, so there’s a wide spectrum of quality when it comes to non-funny Jim Carrey movies. This trailer for his latest serious turn is definitely not funny, but it’s still too early to say if it’s closer to Eternal Sunshine or The Number 23. Titled Dark Crimes, the movie is about a bald and bearded Carrey investigating a murder, and his lead suspect is a particularly intimidating novelist played by Marton Csokas who may or may not be committing real murders to come up with the plot of his murder book.
Of course, this is just a trailer, so maybe it’ll actually be a very funny comedy and they’re just saving the jokes for the final product. Either way, Dark Crimes premiered in Poland in 2016, and it’ll open in United States theaters on May 11 (after a DirecTV release on April 19).
