:: Spotlight :: Movie Trailer - Kidnapping Mr. Heineken

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

In 1983, a group of childhood friends pulled off the crime of the century: kidnapping one of the richest men in the world, the heir of the Heineken beer empire, Freddy Heineken (Anthony Hopkins). The shocking capture - by gunpoint in broad daylight on the streets of Amsterdam - resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for a kidnapped individual. It was the perfect crime… until they got away with it.

Based on a true story, written by William Brookfield and directed by Daniel Alfredson, the crime thriller KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN stars Jim Sturgess, Sam Worthington, Ryan Kwanten, Mark van Eeuwen, Tom Cocquerel, Jemima West and Sir Anthony Hopkins.

The film is rated M and will be released in Australian cinemas nationally on March 12 2015 through the Becker Film Group.
