Russell Crowe Is Fighting Against His Own Mind to Solve a Brutal Murder in the Trailer for ‘Sleeping Dogs’

I don’t think that it’s unfair to say Russell Crowe’s career has been hit or miss over the last decade. One thing can be certain though, he is never the issue. The movies themselves maybe average but Crowe seems to always bring the same gruff fortitude to every role he takes. Couple that with my love of noir and you’ll begin to understand why his upcoming film Sleeping Dogs is quickly moving up my most anticipated list.

Crowe stars as a retired homicide detective with a growing memory loss issue. As a way to keep his mind active he begins to look into an old case that never sat right with him. As the title would imply, sometimes its best to let sleeping dogs lie and Crowe’s character becomes embroiled in much more then he bargained for.

Personally I have always been more of a mid-budget thriller/drama Crowe fan then a Blockbuster Crowe fan (Gladiator being the obvious exception). The trailer below paints a picture of a film rife with twists and turns and a theme reminiscent of something like Se7en. While I immediately thought “oh, it’s a Memento rip-off”, and to be fair if the twist is the same at the end I will be disappointed, I think Sleeping Dogs is going to be a worthwhile time at the theater.


Look for Sleeping Dogs when it hits theaters March 22nd, 2024

Official Synopsis: 

An ex-homicide detective (Russell Crowe) with memory loss is forced to solve a brutal murder he can’t recall. But as evidence uncovers secrets tied to his forgotten past, he is led to a chilling truth – sometimes, it’s best to let sleeping dogs lie.
