The first shot of Mads Mikkelsen in Polar, Netflix’s upcoming action thriller, has been released.
The movie sees Mikkelsen star as Duncan Vizla, the world’s top assassin, the Black Kaiser. He’s on the verge of retiring, but that’s not looking likely, especially after his former employee decides he’s a liability and marks him as a target. He soon finds himself being hunted by a relentless army of younger and faster killers who won’t stop until he’s dead. With no choice but to return to the shadowy life he wants to leave behind, he must use a deadly arsenal and all his skills to outsmart his enemies and protect an innocent woman.
“Mads Mikkelsen was born to play the world’s best assassin,” producer Jeremy Bolt told Variety. “He is totally believable as the Black Kaiser in Polar and Jonas’ unique, vibrant but grounded and darkly comic style will set Polar apart as an unforgettable tale.”
